Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc. Chief Executive Officer, Peter M.

Our second quarter results from rental activities were favorable to guidance by $0.8 million. Property results in the TRS were approximately $0.6 million better than guidance. Property results compared with prior year reflect the impact of the Baltimore Horseshoe on Perryville. Corporate expenses were approximately $3.3 million higher than guidance reflecting the professional fees associated with Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. ("Pinnacle") efforts and The Meadows Racetrack and Casino litigation. As previously announced, we have reached an agreement with Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. to acquire their real estate assets. We believe this transformational transaction, which adds 14 properties in 7 states to our portfolio, will provide significant immediate and long term benefits to all stakeholders. At the close of this transaction, which is expected in the first quarter of 2016, Gaming and Leisure Properties (GLPI) will be the third largest triple-net REIT based on market capitalization, with the associated advantages of enhanced scale, stable cash flows, tenant and geographic diversity, and balance sheet strength. As a management team, we have been focused on driving outsized shareholder value by engaging in complex transactions and believe this transaction positions us very well for sustained growth."
