“Our core ground lease business continues to produce stable and consistent returns, and we are making progress on the new initiatives that we have launched. These initiatives will allow us to drive more meaningful growth to the Partnership as we leverage our relationships and our large and growing portfolio of mission-critical infrastructure assets,” said Tim Brazy, Chief Executive Officer of the Partnership’s general partner.

Quarterly Distributions
On October 18, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Partnership’s general partner declared a cash distribution of $0.3575 per common unit, or $1.43 per common unit on an annualized basis, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. This quarter’s cash distribution, which represents a 5.9% increase year-over-year, marks the eleventh consecutive quarter that the Partnership has increased its quarterly cash distribution since its IPO in November 2014. The distribution is payable on November 14, 2017 to common unitholders of record as of November 1, 2017.

On October 18, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Partnership’s general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.49375 per Series B preferred unit, which is payable on November 15, 2017 to Series B preferred unitholders of record as of November 1, 2017.

On September 21, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Partnership’s general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.500 per Series A preferred unit, which was paid on October 16, 2017 to Series A preferred unitholders of record as of October 2, 2017.

Capital and Liquidity
As of September 30, 2017, the Partnership had $333 million of outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) and $34 million of undrawn borrowing capacity under the Facility, subject to compliance with certain covenants.

Recent Acquisitions
Year-to-date through October 31, 2017, the Partnership acquired a total of 164 assets for total consideration of approximately $125 million. The acquisitions were immediately accretive to the Partnership’s distributable cash flow, and funded primarily with borrowings under the Partnership’s existing Facility.

At-The-Market (“ATM”) Equity Programs
Through its At-The-Market (“ATM”) issuance programs, the Partnership has issued 35,426 common units, 601,371 Series A preferred units and 596,393 Series B preferred units for gross proceeds of approximately $0.6 million, $15.1 million and $15.0 million, respectively, year-to-date through October 31, 2017.

2017 Guidance
The Partnership’s sponsor has previously expressed its intent to offer us the right to purchase $200 million of assets in 2017. These acquisitions, combined with organic portfolio growth, are expected to drive distribution growth of 10% over the fourth quarter 2016 distribution of $0.35 per common unit by the fourth quarter 2017 (distribution to be paid in February 2018).

About Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP
The Partnership owns and manages a portfolio of real property interests and infrastructure assets that the Partnership leases to companies in the wireless communication, outdoor advertising and renewable power generation industries.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We define EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and we define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before unrealized and realized gain or loss on derivatives, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain on sale of real property interests, straight line rent adjustments, amortization of above and below market rents, impairments, acquisition-related expenses, unit-based compensation, and the capital contribution to fund our general and administrative expense reimbursement. We define distributable cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA less cash interest paid, current cash income tax paid, preferred distributions paid and maintenance capital expenditures. Distributable cash flow will not reflect changes in working capital balances. We believe that to understand our performance further, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should be compared with our reported net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), as presented in our combined financial statements.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:

  • our operating performance as compared to other publicly traded limited partnerships, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, financing methods;
  • the ability of our business to generate sufficient cash to support our decision to make distributions to our unitholders;
  • our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow provides information useful to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income (loss), net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Each of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow has important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities, and these measures may vary from those of other companies. You should not consider EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. As a result, because EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow as presented below may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility. For a reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow to the most comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, please see the “Reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow” table below.

Forward-Looking Statements
This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws. These statements discuss future expectations, contain projections of results of operations or of financial condition or state other forward-looking information. You can identify forward-looking statements by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “project,” “could,” “may,” “should,” “would,” “will” or other similar expressions that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond the Partnership’s control and are difficult to predict. These statements are often based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including examination of historical operating trends made by the management of the Partnership. Although the Partnership believes that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond its control, the Partnership cannot give assurance that it will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or intentions. Examples of forward-looking statements in this press release include our expected distribution growth for 2017 and expected acquisition opportunities from our sponsor. When considering these forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the risk factors and other cautionary statements contained in the Partnership’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), including the Partnership’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on February 23, 2017. These risks could cause the Partnership’s actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

(1)During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Partnership completed five drop-down acquisitions, (the “2016 Drop-down Assets”) from our sponsor Landmark Dividend LLC and affiliates (collectively “Landmark”). Since the entities are under common control, the assets and liabilities acquired are recorded at Landmark’s historical cost, with financial statements for prior periods retroactively adjusted to furnish comparative information. Financial information prior to the closing of each transaction has been retroactively adjusted for the 2016 Drop-down Assets. On April 1, 2017, the Partnership early adopted ASU No. 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business (“ASU No. 2017-01”). Under ASU 2017-01 the June 8, 2017 drop-down transaction was an asset acquisition with prior periods not retroactively adjusted. In addition, after the adoption of ASU No. 2017-01, acquisition costs for asset acquisitions are capitalized. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the accompanying notes and other information included in the Partnership’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 2, 2017 and the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 23, 2017.

(1)“Available Tenant Sites” means the number of individual sites that could be leased. For example, if we have an easement on a single rooftop, on which three different tenants can lease space from us, this would be counted as three “tenant sites,” and all three tenant sites would be at a single infrastructure location with the same address.
(2)Assumes the exercise of all remaining renewal options of tenant leases. Assuming no exercise of renewal options, the average remaining lease terms for our wireless communication, outdoor advertising, renewable power generation and aggregate portfolios as of September 30, 2017 were 3.9, 8.8, 19.2 and 5.4 years, respectively.
(3)Represents the number of leased tenant sites divided by the number of available tenant sites.
(4)Occupancy and average monthly effective rent per tenant site are shown only on an aggregate portfolio basis by industry.
(5)Represents total monthly revenue excluding the impact of amortization of above and below market lease intangibles divided by the number of leased tenant sites.
(6)Represents GAAP rental revenue recognized under existing tenant leases for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Excludes interest income on receivables.
(7)Fee simple ownership and perpetual easements are shown as having a term of 99 years for purposes of calculating the average remaining term.
(8)Reflects “springing lease agreements” whereby the cancellation or nonrenewal of a tenant lease entitles us to enter into a new ground lease with the property owner (up to the full property interest term) and a replacement tenant lease. The remaining lease assignment term is, therefore, equal to or longer than the remaining lease term. Also represents properties for which the “springing lease” feature has been exercised and has been replaced by a lease for the remaining lease term.
(9)Excluding perpetual ownership rights, the average remaining property interest term on our tenant sites is approximately 66 years.

(1)Financial information prior to the closing of drop-down transactions has been retroactively adjusted for certain assets acquired from Landmark during the year ended December 31, 2016. See reconciliation of operations, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and distributable cash flow for the periods presented.
(2)Under the omnibus agreement that we entered into with Landmark at the closing of our initial public offering, we agreed to reimburse Landmark for expenses related to certain general and administrative services that Landmark will provide to us in support of our business, subject to a quarterly cap equal to the greater of $162,500 and 3% of our revenue during the preceding calendar quarter. This cap on expenses will last until the earlier to occur of: (i) the date on which our revenue for the immediately preceding four consecutive fiscal quarters exceeded $80.0 million and (ii) November 19, 2019. The full amount of general and administrative expenses incurred will be reflected in our income statements, and to the extent such general and administrative expenses exceed the cap amount, the amount of such excess will be reflected in our financial statements as a capital contribution from Landmark rather than as a reduction of our general and administrative expenses, except for expenses that would otherwise be allocated to us, which are not included in our general and administrative expenses.

(1)During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Partnership completed five drop-down acquisitions from Landmark and affiliates (the “Drop-down Assets”). The assets and liabilities acquired are recorded at the historical cost of Landmark, as the transactions are between entities under common control, the statements of operations of the Partnership are adjusted retroactively as if the transactions occurred on the earliest date during which the entities were under common control. The historical financial statements have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the results of operations, financial position, and cash flows of the Drop-down Assets as if the Partnership owned the Drop-down Assets in all periods while under common control. The reconciliation presents our results of operations and financial position giving effect to the Drop-down Assets. The combined results of the Drop-down Assets prior to each transaction date are included in “Drop-down Assets Predecessor.” The consolidated results of the Drop-down Assets after each transaction date are included in “Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP.” On April 1, 2017, the Partnership early adopted ASU No. 2017-01. Drop-down acquisitions subsequent to the adoption of ASU 2017-01 are asset acquisitions with prior periods not retroactively adjusted. In addition, after the adoption of ASU No. 2017-01, acquisition costs for asset acquisitions are capitalized.
(2)Under the omnibus agreement that we entered into with Landmark at the closing of the IPO, we agreed to reimburse Landmark for expenses related to certain general and administrative services that Landmark will provide to us in support of our business, subject to a quarterly cap equal to the greater of $162,500 and 3% of our revenue during the preceding calendar quarter. This cap on expenses will last until the earlier to occur of: (i) the date on which our revenue for the immediately preceding four consecutive fiscal quarters exceeded $80.0 million and (ii) November 19, 2019. The full amount of general and administrative expenses incurred will be reflected in our income statements, and to the extent such general and administrative expenses exceed the cap amount, the amount of such excess will be reflected in our financial statements as a capital contribution from Landmark rather than as a reduction of our general and administrative expenses, except for expenses that would otherwise be allocated to us, which are not included in our general and administrative expenses.
(3)Coverage ratio is calculated as the distributable cash flow for the quarter divided by the distributions to the common and subordinated unitholders on the weighted average units outstanding.
