VICI Properties Inc. Announces Closing of Public Offering of Common Stock and Full Exercise of Underwriters’ Option to Purchase Additional Shares

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- VICI Properties Inc. (NYSE:VICI) (“VICI Properties” or the “Company”), an experiential-asset real estate investment trust (“REIT”), today announced the closing of its underwritten public offering of 34.5 million shares of common stock, including 4.5 million shares of common stock sold pursuant to the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares of common stock, at the public offering price of $21.00 per share for gross proceeds of $724.5 million.

VICI Properties currently intends to use the net proceeds from this offering, together with debt financing and available cash on hand, to fund its previously announced acquisition of the land and real estate assets of the Greektown Casino-Hotel. In addition, given the anticipated timeframe from the closing of the Greektown Acquisition, the Company may, in the interim, use a portion of the net proceeds from this offering for working capital and general corporate purposes, which may include the acquisition, development and improvement of properties, capital expenditures, the repayment of indebtedness and other general business purposes. Pending application of the net proceeds as described above, the Company intends to invest the net proceeds from this offering in short-term income producing investments, such as commercial paper, government securities or money market funds that invest in government securities and/or commercial paper, that are consistent with its intention to continue to qualify as a REIT for U.S. Federal income tax purposes.
