On April25, the Company entered into a master contribution agreement (the Master Contribution Agreement) with MGP and MGM Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP (the Operating Partnership), indirect subsidiaries of the Company, which provides for, among other things, MGPs responsibility for liabilities relating to its business and the responsibility of the Company for liabilities unrelated to MGPs business, MGPs agreements with the Company regarding the principal transactions necessary to effect the transfer by the Company of certain assets to MGP or its subsidiaries, the assumption by MGP or its subsidiaries of certain liabilities in connection with that transfer, the assumption by MGP or its subsidiaries of the bridge facilities entered int o by the Company and certain of its subsidiaries in connection with the formation transactions associated with MGP and other agreements that govern various aspects of MGPs relationship with MGM after the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Master Contribution Agreement. The Master Contribution Agreement also contains indemnification obligations and ongoing commitments of MGP, the Operating Partnership and the Company. This description of the Master Contribution Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Master Contribution Agreement incorporated by reference hereto as Exhibit 2.1. Exhibits and schedules that have been excluded from the text of the Master Contribution Agreement attached hereto will be supplementally furnished to the Commission upon request.

Master Lease

On April25, 2016, a subsidiary of the Company (the Tenant) entered into a long-term triple-net master lease agreement (the Master Lease) with a subsidiary of MGP (the Landlord) pursuant to which all of MGPs real estate assets (each a Property and collectively the Properties) were leased to the Tenant. The Master Lease has an initial lease term of ten years with the potential to extend the term for four additional five-year terms thereafter at the option of the Tenant. The Master Lease provides that any extension of its term must apply to all of the Properties under the Master Lease at the time of the extension. The Master Lease has a triple-net structure, which requires the Tenant to pay substantially all costs associated with each Property, including real estate taxes, insurance, utilities and routine maintenance, in addition to the base rent. Additionally, the Master Lease provides MGP with a right of first offer with respect to the Companys development properties located in National Harbor, Maryland and Springfield, Massachusetts, which MGP may exercise should the Company elect to sell these properties in the future.

The annual rent payments due under the Master Lease will initially be $550.0 million. Rent under the Master Lease consists of a base rent component (the Base Rent) and a percentage rent component (the Percentage Rent). For the first year, the Base Rent will represent 90% of the initial total rent payments due under the Master Lease, or $495.0 million, and the Percentage Rent will represent 10% of the initial total rent payments due under the Master Lease, or $55.0 million. The Base Rent includes a fixed annual rent escalator of 2.0% for the second through the sixth lease years (as defined in the Master Lease). Thereafter, the annual escalator of 2.0% will be subject to the Tenant and, without duplication, the Company operating subsidiary sublessees of the Tenant (such sublessees, collectively, the Operating Subtenants), collectively meeting an adjusted net revenue to rent ratio of 6.25:1.00 based on their net revenue from the leased properties subject to the Master Lease (as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, adjusted to exclude net revenue attributable to certain scheduled subleases and, at the Companys option, reimbursed cost revenue). The Percentage Rent will initially be a fixed amount for approximately the first six years and will then be adjusted every five years based on the average actual annual net revenues of the Tenant and, without duplication, the Operating Subtenants from the leased properties subject to the Master Lease at such time for the trailing five calendar-year period (calculated by multiplying the average annual net revenues, excluding net revenue attributable to certain scheduled subleases and, at the Companys option, reimbursed cost revenue, for the trailing five calendar-year period by 1.4%). The Master Lease includes covenants that impose ongoing reporting obligations on the Tenant relating to the Companys financial statements. The Master Lease will also require the Company, on a consolidated basis with the Tenant, to maintain an EBITDAR to rent ratio (as described in the Master Lease) of 1.10:1.00.

This description of the Master Lease is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Master Lease incorporated by reference hereto as Exhibit 10.1.

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement

On April25, 2016, the Company entered into an amended and restated credit agreement among the Company, the lenders from time to time party thereto and Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent (the Credit Agreement). A copy of the Credit Agreement is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.2.

The Credit Agreement is comprised of a $1.25 billion revolving facility (the Revolving Credit Facility) and a $250 million term loan A facility (the Term Loan Facility, and, together with the Revolving Credit Facility, the Facilities). The Facilities will initially bear interest at LIBOR plus 2.75% for the first six months after execution of the Credit Agreement, and thereafter the interest rate will be determined by reference to a total net leverage ratio pricing grid which would result in an interest rate of LIBOR plus 1.75% to 2.75%. The Facilities will mature in April 2021.

The Credit Agreement governing the Facilities contains customary covenants that, among other things, limit the ability of the Company and its restricted subsidiaries to: (i)incur additional indebtedness; (ii)merge with a third party or engage in other fundamental changes; (iii)make restricted payments; (iv)enter into, create, incur or assume any liens; (v)make certain sales and other dispositions of assets; (vi)enter into certain transactions with affiliates; (vii)make certain payments on certain other indebtedness; (viii)make certain investments; and (ix)incur restrictions on the ability of restricted subsidiaries to make certain distributions, loans or transfers of assets to the Company or any restricted subsidiary. These covenants are subject to a number of important exceptions and qualifications. The Credit Agreement requires the Company to comply with certain financial covenants, which may restrict the Companys ability to incur additional debt to fund its obligations in the near term.

The Credit Agreement is secured by (i)a mortgage on the real properties comprising the MGM Grand Las Vegas and the Bellagio (the Mortgaged Properties), (ii) a pledge of substantially all existing and future personal property of the subsidiaries of the Company that own the Mortgaged Properties, subject to customary exclusions; and (iii) upon receipt of the necessary gaming approvals, a pledge of the equity or limited liability company interests of the subsidiaries of the Company that own the Mortgaged Properties.

Mandatory prepayments of the credit facilities will be required upon the occurrence of certain events, including sales of certain assets, casualty events and the incurrence of certain additional indebtedness, subject to certain exceptions and reinvestment rights.

The Facilities also provide for customary events of default, including, without limitation, (i)payment defaults, (ii) inaccuracies of representations and warranties, (iii)covenant defaults, (iv)cross-defaults to certain other indebtedness in excess of specified amounts, (v)certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency, (vi)judgment defaults in excess of specified amounts, (vii)actual or asserted invalidity or impairment of any loan documentation, (viii)the security documents cease to create a valid and perfected first priority lien on any material portion of the collateral, (ix)ERISA defaults, and (x)change of control. The Term Loan Facility is subject to amortization of principal in equal quarterly installments (commencing with the fiscal quarter ended March31, 2017), with 5.0% of the initial aggregate principal amount of the Term Loan Facility to be payable each year. The Facilities are both guaranteed by each of the Companys existing and subsequently acquired direct and indirect wholly owned material domestic restricted subsidiaries, subject to certain exclusions. As of April25, 2016, the Company has $1.25 billion of available borrowing capacity under the Revolving Credit Facility (excluding letters of credit).

This description of the Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2.

MGP Credit Agreement

On April25, 2016, the Operating Partnership entered into a credit agreement (the MGP Credit Agreement) among the Operating Partnership, certain financial institutions named therein as lenders and Bank of America, N.A. as administrative agent, comprised of a $300,000,000 senior secured term loan A facility (the MGP Term Loan A Facility), a $1,850,000,000 senior secured term loan B facility (the MGP Term Loan B Facility and together with the MGP Term Loan A Facility, the MGP Term Loan Facilities) and a $600,000,000 senior secured revolving credit facility (the MGP Revolving Credit Facility). The MGP Revolving Credit Facility and MGP Term Loan A Facility will initially bear interest at LIBOR plus 2.75% for the first six months after execution of the MGP Credit Agreement, and thereafter the interest rate will be determined by reference to a total net leverage ratio pricing grid which would result in an interest rate of LIBOR plus 2.25% to 2.75%. The MGP Term Loan B Facility will bear interest at LIBOR plus 3.25% with a LIBOR floor of 0.75%. The MGP Term Loan B Facility was issued at 99.75% to initial lenders. The MGP Revolving Credit Facility and the MGP Term Loan A Facility will mature in 2021 and the MGP Term Loan B Facility will mature in 2023.

The MGP Credit Agreement governing the MGP Revolving Credit Facility and the MGP Term Loan Facilities contains customary covenants that, among other things, limit the ability of the Operating Partnership and its restricted subsidiaries to: (i)incur additional indebtedness; (ii)merge with a third party or engage in other fundamental changes; (iii)make restricted payments; (iv)enter into, create, incur or assume any liens; (v)make certain sales and other dispositions of assets; (vi)enter into certain transactions with affiliates; (vii)make certain payments on certain other indebtedness; (viii)make certain investments; and (ix)incur restrictions on the ability of restricted subsidiaries to make certain distributions, loans or transfers of assets to the Operating Partnership or any restricted subsidiary. These covenants are subject to a number of important exceptions and qualifications. The MGP Revolving Credit Facility and the MGP Term Loan A Facility require the Operating Partnership to comply with certain financial covenants, which may restrict the Operating Partnerships ability to incur additional debt to fund its obligations in the near term.

The MGP Revolving Credit Facility and the MGP Term Loan Facilities also provide for customary events of default, including, without limitation, (i)payment defaults, (ii)inaccuracies of representations and warranties, (iii)covenant defaults, (iv)cross-defaults to certain other indebtedness in excess of specified amounts, (v)certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency, (vi)judgment defaults in excess of specified amounts, (vii)actual or asserted invalidity or impairment of any loan documentation, (viii)the security documents cease to create a valid and perfected first priority lien on any material portion of the collateral, (ix)ERISA defaults, (x)termination of the Master Lease and (xi)change of control. The MGP Term Loan Facilities are subject to amortization of principal in equal quarterly installments, with 5.0% of the initial aggregate principal amount of the MGP Term Loan A Facility and 1.0% of the initial aggregate principal amount of the MGP Term Loan B Facility to be payable each year. The MGP Revolving Credit Facility and the MGP Term Loan Facilities are both guaranteed by each of the Operating Partnerships existing and subsequently acquired direct and indirect wholly owned material domestic restricted subsidiaries, and secured by a first priority lien security interest on substantially all of the Operating Partnerships and such restricted subsidiaries material assets, including mortgages on the Operating Partnerships properties subject to the Master Lease, subject to customary exclusions. As of April25, 2016, the Company has $600.0 million of available borrowing capacity under the MGP Revolving Credit Facility (excluding letters of credit).

This description of the MGP Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the MGP Credit Agreement incorporated by reference hereto as Exhibit 10.3.
