Preliminary Financial Information for the Three Months and Year Ended December 31, 2018
On January 28, 2019, MGM Growth Properties LLC (MGP), a subsidiary of the Company, commenced an underwritten follow-on public offering of 14,500,000 of its Class A shares representing limited liability company interests pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 filed by MGP on May 18, 2017 (the Offering).
As disclosed in the preliminary prospectus supplement for the Offering, based on currently available information, MGP estimates that its total revenues for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 were between $275 million and $285 million and between $995 million and $1.01 billion, respectively, of which approximately 24% and 13%, respectively, were attributable to Northfield Park Associates LLC. MGP estimates that its income before income taxes for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 were between $68 million and $73 million and between $253 million and $258 million, respectively.
The preliminary estimates presented above are the responsibility of MGPs management and have been prepared in good faith on a consistent basis with prior periods.

In addition, Deloitte & Touche LLP, MGPs independent registered public accounting firm, has not audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to these preliminary estimates, and does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect to these preliminary estimates presented above or their achievability. During the course of the preparation of MGPs consolidated financial statements and related notes as of and for the year ended December 31, 2018, MGP or its auditors may identify items that would require MGP to make material adjustments to the preliminary estimates presented above. As a result, prospective investors should exercise caution in relying on this information and should not draw any inferences from this information regarding financial or operating data not provide. These preliminary estimates should not be viewed as a substitute for full financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, these preliminary estimates are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved in any future period.
