MGM Growth Properties announces IPO, expects to raise $100M

MGM Resorts International’s recently formed real estate investment trust, MGM Growth Properties, has announced plans for its initial public offering in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

In the Tuesday filing, MGM Growth outlined plans for its listing on the New York Stock Exchange in a registration statement. The statement explains that MGM Resorts will operate Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Excalibur, New York-New York, the Monte Carlo and the company’s new outdoor venue, The Park, north of New York-New York in Las Vegas as well as MGM Detroit, the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi and the Gold Strike in Tunica, Mississippi, while MGM Growth will own them.

Customers and employees won’t see any difference in the day-to-day operations of the properties as a result of the new structure.

The company expects to raise $100 million in the offering, but analysts believe proceeds could be much higher.

MGM Resorts will maintain control of the REIT, which was approved last week by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
