Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Pursuant to the Plan of Voluntary Liquidation approved by the board of trustees of Spirit MTA REIT, a Maryland real estate investment trust (the “Company”) on July 11, 2019, and the shareholders of the Company on September 4, 2019 (the “Plan of Liquidation”), effective as of January 1, 2020, at 12:01 A.M. Eastern Time (the “Effective Time”), the Company transferred, assigned and delivered all of its assets (subject to all of its liabilities) to a newly-created liquidating trust called “SMTA Liquidating Trust”, a Maryland common law trust (the “Liquidating Trust”), for the benefit of the shareholders of the Company and, in connection with such transfer, the Liquidating Trust distributed all of the units of beneficial interests of the Liquidating Trust (the “Liquidating Trust Units”) to the shareholders of the Company, with each shareholder receiving one Liquidating Trust Unit for each common share of beneficial interest, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (each, a “Company Share”) then held of record by such shareholder. As of the Effective Time, all outstanding Company Shares were cancelled, and the Company was dissolved and terminated. As a result of the foregoing, each holder of Company Shares immediately prior to the Effective Time now holds an equal number of Liquidating Trust Units.

In accordance with the Plan of Liquidation, the Liquidating Trust was created pursuant to a Liquidating Trust Agreement, dated as of January 1, 2020 (the “Trust Agreement”), between the Company and each of the four trustees of the Company, in their capacities as trustees of the Liquidating Trust (the “Liquidating Trustees”).

The purpose of the Liquidating Trust is to wind up the affairs of the Company, liquidate the Company’s remaining assets, pay any liabilities, costs and expenses of the Company which were assumed by the Liquidating Trust and/or are incurred by the Liquidating Trust and distribute the net proceeds therefrom to the holders of the Liquidating Trust Units. The Liquidating Trust’s activities are restricted to winding up the Company’s affairs as promptly as reasonably possible. The Liquidating Trust Agreement provides that the Liquidating Trust will terminate upon the earlier of the distribution of all of the Liquidating Trust’s assets in accordance with the terms of the Trust Agreement and January 1, 2023. The existence of the Liquidating Trust may, however, be extended for fixed-term extensions under certain circumstances pursuant to the terms of the Trust Agreement. The aggregate of all such extensions may not exceed 3 years unless the Liquidating Trustees receive a favorable ruling from the internal revenue service that any further extension(s) would not adversely affect the status of the Liquidating Trust as a “liquidating trust” for federal income tax purposes.

Under the Trust Agreement, the Liquidating Trust Units are not transferable or assignable, except by will, intestate succession or operation of law. The Liquidating Trust Units are not certificated and are not listed on any exchange or quoted on any quotation system or otherwise tradeable in any public or private transactions.

The Trust Agreement vests in the Liquidating Trustees the authority to manage the Liquidating Trust. Spirit Realty AM Corporation (a wholly owned subsidiary of Spirit Realty Capital, Inc.) will manage the day-to-day affairs of the Liquidating Trust and the liquidation of the assets of the Liquidating Trust, at all times subject to the supervision, direction and management of the Liquidating Trustees, in accordance with the terms of the Interim Management Agreement, dated as of June 2, 2019, originally entered into between the Company and Spirit Realty AM Corporation.

The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the Trust Agreement that is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 2, 2020, the Liquidating Trust issued a press release announcing, among other things, that effective as of the Effective Time, the Company dissolved and terminated its existence. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

(b) The Transferred Assets to be transferred, assigned and delivered to the Trustees as of the Transfer Time and in accordance with Section 2.3 of this Agreement will be held in the Liquidating Trust, and the Trustees will: (i) further liquidate the Liquidating Trust Assets as the Trustees deem necessary to carry out the purpose of the Liquidating Trust and facilitate the distribution of the Liquidating Trust Assets; (ii) allocate, protect, conserve and manage the Liquidating Trust Assets in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof; and (iii) distribute the Liquidating Trust Assets in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof.

(c) It is intended that the transfer, assignment and delivery of the Transferred Assets by the Company to the Trustees pursuant to the terms hereof shall be treated for federal, state and local income tax purposes as if the Company made such distributions directly to the Initial Beneficiaries and the Initial Beneficiaries transferred the Transferred Assets to the Liquidating Trust in exchange for Liquidating Trust Interests for the benefit of such Initial Beneficiaries in accordance with the Plan. It is further intended for federal, state and local income tax purposes that the Liquidating Trust shall be treated as a liquidating trust under Treasury Regulations Section 301.7701-4(d) and any analogous provision of state or local law, and the Beneficiaries shall be treated as the owners of their respective share of the Liquidating Trust pursuant to Sections 671 through 679 of the Code and any analogous provision of state or local law and shall be taxed on their share of the Liquidating Trust’s taxable income (including both ordinary income and capital gains) pursuant to Section 671 of the Code and any analogous provision of state or local law.

(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, to the extent that the transfer, assignment or delivery or attempted transfer, assignment or delivery to the Trustees of any right or asset that is a Transferred Asset is prohibited by any applicable law, rule or regulation or would require any governmental or third party authorizations, approvals, consents or waivers, and such authorizations, approvals, consents or waivers shall not have been obtained prior to the Transfer Time, the transfer, assignment and delivery of the Transferred Assets shall proceed without the transfer, assignment or delivery of such right or asset and following the Transfer Time, the Company and the Trustees shall use their reasonable best efforts, and cooperate with each other, to promptly obtain such authorizations, approvals, consents or waivers, to the extent that the Trustees determine in their reasonable judgment that seeking and obtaining such authorizations, approvals, consents or waivers is practicable. Pending, or in the absence of, such authorization, approval, consent or waiver, the Company and the Trustees shall cooperate with each other in any mutually agreeable, reasonable and lawful arrangements designed to provide to the Trustees the benefits of such right or asset. If authorization, approval, consent or waiver for the transfer, assignment or delivery of any such asset not transferred, assigned or delivered at the Transfer Time is obtained, the Company shall transfer, assign and deliver such right or asset to the Trustees at no cost. To the extent that any such right or asset is not transferred or the full benefits of such right and asset cannot be provided to the Trustees following the Transfer Time pursuant to this Section 2.3(c), then the Company shall remit to the Trustees upon receipt thereof, all income, proceeds and other monies received by the Company in connection with, or in respect of, such right or asset.

2.4. Title to Liquidating Trust Assets. The transfer, assignment and delivery of the Transferred Assets to the Trustees to be held in the Liquidating Trust shall be made by the Company for the benefit and on behalf of the Beneficiaries. In this regard, the Transferred Assets will be treated for tax purposes as being transferred by the Company to the Initial Beneficiaries, and then by such Initial Beneficiaries to the Liquidating Trust in exchange for Liquidating Trust Interests for the benefit of such Initial Beneficiaries in accordance with the Plan. Upon the transfer, assignment and delivery of the Transferred Assets, the Trustees shall succeed to all of the Company’s right, title and interest in the Transferred Assets and the Company will have no further interest in or with respect to the Transferred Assets or the Liquidating Trust Assets or this Liquidating Trust.

2.5. Assumption of Liabilities. As of the Transfer Time, the Trustees, in their capacity as Trustees of the Liquidating Trust and not in their individual capacities, hereby assume all Liabilities and agree thereafter to cause the Liquidating Trust to pay, discharge and perform when due all of the Liabilities. Should any Liability be asserted against the Trustees as the transferees of the Transferred Assets or as a result of the assumption made in this Section 2.5, the Trustees may use such part of the Liquidating Trust Assets as may be necessary in contesting any such Liability or in payment thereof, but in no event shall any Trustee, Beneficiary or employee or agent of the Liquidating Trust or of any of its subsidiaries be personally liable, nor shall resort be had to the private property of such Persons, in the event that the Liquidating Trust Assets are not sufficient to satisfy the Liabilities.

2.6. No Reversion to the Company. In no event shall any part of the Transferred Assets or other Liquidating Trust Assets revert to or be distributed to the Company.

2.7. Instruments of Further Assurance. Such Persons as shall have the right and power to so act, shall, upon reasonable request of the Trustees, execute, acknowledge and deliver such further instruments and do such further acts as may be necessary or proper to carry out effectively the purposes of this Agreement, to confirm or effectuate the transfer to the Trustees of any property and/or the assumption by the Trustees of any Liabilities intended to be covered hereby, and to vest in the Trustees and their successors and assigns, the estate, powers, instruments or funds in trust hereunder.

2.8. Governance of the Liquidating Trust. The Liquidating Trust shall be governed by the Trustees. The Trustees’ powers are exercisable solely in a fiduciary capacity consistent with, and in furtherance of, the purposes of this Agreement and the Liquidating Trust and not otherwise.

The Trustees may from time to time make withdrawals from the Liquidating Trust Assets in amounts and at times that the Trustees, in their sole discretion, deem necessary or appropriate to fund any and all costs and expenses that the Trustees and the Liquidating Trust incur subsequent to the Transfer Time in accordance with this Agreement and the Plan.

ARTICLE 3

LIQUIDATING TRUST BENEFICIARIES

3.1. Identification of Beneficiaries.

(a) The initial Beneficiaries (the “Initial Beneficiaries”) of the Liquidating Trust shall be the Shareholders as of the Transfer Time (or, with respect to Shares traded prior to the Transfer Time, the Shareholder as of any later time that any such trade settles), as determined by the Trustees in accordance with a certified copy of the list of the Shareholders as of the Transfer Time (or, with respect to Shares traded prior to the Transfer Time, the Shareholder as of any later time that any such trade settles) (the “Shareholder List”). The Company will cause its transfer agent to deliver a certified copy of the Shareholder List to the Trustees promptly after the Transfer Time. If any of the Shareholders cannot be located, the Trustees will provide due notice to such Shareholders in accordance with Maryland law. For ease of administration, the Trustees shall express the Liquidating Trust Interest of each Beneficiary in terms of units of common beneficial interest (“Units”). Each Initial Beneficiary shall be allocated one Unit for each Share owned by it as of the Transfer Time (or, with respect to Shares traded prior to the Transfer Time, the Shareholder as of any later time that any such trade settles) in its capacity as a Shareholder.

(b) The Units and the rights of the Beneficiaries in, to and under the Liquidating Trust Assets and the Liquidating Trust shall not be represented by any form of certificate or other instrument, and no Beneficiary shall be entitled to any certificate. The Trustees shall maintain or cause to be maintained a record of the name and address of each Beneficiary as well as the aggregate number of Units held by, and Liquidating Trust Interest of, each Beneficiary. All references in this Agreement to the Beneficiaries or the holders of Liquidating Trust Interests shall be read to mean holders of record of Units as set forth in the official register maintained by the Trustees and shall not mean any beneficial owner not recorded on such official register. Unless expressly provided herein, the Trustees may establish a record date that they deem practicable for determining the Beneficiaries from time to time for any purpose.

3.2. Limitation on Transfer of Liquidating Trust Interests. The Liquidating Trust Interests shall not be assignable or transferable, provided, that the Liquidating Trust Interests shall be assignable or transferable by will, intestate succession or operation of law and that the executor or administrator of the estate of a holder of a Liquidating Trust Interest may mortgage, pledge, grant a security interest in, hypothecate or otherwise encumber the Liquidating Trust Interests held by the estate of such holder if such transaction (i) does not constitute a sale, exchange or disposition for federal income tax purposes and (ii) is necessary in order to obtain money to pay estate, succession or inheritance taxes or the expenses of administering the estate of the holder, upon written notice to, and written consent of, the Trustees, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld. For all federal income tax purposes, any assignee or transferee that receives a Liquidating Trust Interest in compliance with this Section 3.2 shall be treated as a grantor and owner of the Liquidating Trust pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.671-2(e)(3).

3.3. Conflicting Claims. If any conflicting claims or demands are made or asserted with respect to certain Liquidating Trust Interests, or if there is any disagreement between the transferees, assignees, heirs, representatives or legatees succeeding to all or part of the Liquidating Trust Interests of any Beneficiary resulting in adverse claims or demands being made in connection with such Liquidating Trust Interests, then, in any of such events, the Trustees shall be entitled, at their sole election, to refuse to comply with any such conflicting claims or demands. In so refusing, the Trustees may elect not to make any payment or distribution with respect to such Liquidating Trust Interests, or to make such payment to a court of competent jurisdiction or an escrow agent, and in so doing, none of the Trustees shall be or become liable to any of such parties for their failure or refusal to comply with any of such conflicting claims or demands or to take any other action with respect thereto, nor shall the Trustees be liable for interest on any funds which they may so withhold. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Section 3.3, the Trustees shall be entitled to refrain and refuse to act until either (i) the rights of the adverse claimants have been adjudicated by a final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, (ii) all differences have been adjusted by valid written agreement between all of such parties, and the Trustees shall have been furnished with an executed counterpart of such agreement or (iii) there is furnished to the Trustees a surety bond or other security satisfactory to the Trustees, as they shall deem appropriate, to fully indemnify the Trustees as between all conflicting claims or demands.

3.4. Limitation on Suits by Beneficiaries. No Beneficiary shall have the right by virtue of any provision of this Agreement to institute any action or proceeding at law or in equity against any Person other than the Trustees upon or under or with respect to any Liquidating Trust Assets or the agreements relating to or forming a part of any Liquidating Trust Assets, and the Beneficiaries do hereby waive any such right in consideration of receipt of each such Beneficiary’s respective Units.

 

7


3.5. Evidence of Action by Beneficiaries. Whenever in this Agreement it is provided that the Beneficiaries may take any action (including the making of any demand or request, the giving of any notice, consent or waiver, the removal of a Trustee, the appointment of a successor Trustee, or the taking of any other action), the fact that at the time of taking any action such Beneficiaries have joined therein may be evidenced (i) by any instrument or any number of instruments of similar tenor executed by Beneficiaries in person or by agent or attorney appointed in writing or (ii) by the record of the Beneficiaries voting in favor thereof at any meeting of Beneficiaries duly called and held in accordance with the provisions of ARTICLE 13. Subject to the provisions of Section 13.1 relating to the limitations of Beneficiaries taking action by written consent without a meeting, such meeting or writing may take any form permitted under Maryland law.

7.2. Final Distribution. If the Trustees, in their sole discretion, determine that the Liabilities and all other claims, expenses, charges and obligations of the Liquidating Trust have been paid or discharged or if the existence of the Liquidating Trust shall terminate pursuant to Section 11.1, the Trustees shall, as expeditiously as is consistent with the conservation and protection of the Liquidating Trust Assets, distribute the remaining Liquidating Trust Assets, if any, to the Beneficiaries in proportion to the Liquidating Trust Interests of each Beneficiary on the record date fixed for such distribution as determined by the Trustees.

7.4. Delivery of Liquidating Trust Distributions.

In the event that any distribution to any Beneficiary is returned as undeliverable, the Trustees shall use reasonable efforts to determine the current address of such Beneficiary, but no distribution to such Beneficiary shall be made unless and until the Trustees have determined the then current address of such Beneficiary, at which time such distribution shall be made to such Beneficiary without interest; provided, however, that such undeliverable or unclaimed distributions shall be deemed unclaimed property at the expiration of one year from the date of distribution.

SUCCESSOR TRUSTEES

8.1. Resignation and Removal. Any Trustee may resign and be discharged from the Liquidating Trust by giving written notice thereof to any remaining Trustee or Trustees or, if there are no remaining Trustees, by publicly disclosing (by means of a press release or filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission) such resignation.

If a successor Trustee shall not have been appointed within such ninety (90) day period from the predecessor Trustee’s resignation, for any reason whatsoever, the resigning Trustee shall deliver the Liquidating Trust Assets to a court of competent jurisdiction and give written notice of the same to the Beneficiaries by means of a press release or filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

8.2. Appointment of Successor. Should at any time a Trustee resign or be removed, die, unless any remaining Trustees shall decrease the number of Trustees of the Liquidating Trust pursuant to Section 4.1 hereof or should the number of Trustees be increased by the Trustees pursuant to Section 4.1 hereof, a vacancy(ies) shall be deemed to exist and a successor(s) shall be appointed by any remaining Trustees; provided that, solely in the event at any time there are no remaining Trustees, (i) Beneficiaries holding Units representing an

 

16


aggregate of at least 10% of the total Liquidating Trust Interests may call a meeting of Beneficiaries to appoint successor Trustees, or Beneficiaries holding Units representing a majority of the total Liquidating Trust Interests may act by written consent to appoint successor Trustees. Any such meeting of the Beneficiaries to be held at such time and at such place as the Beneficiaries holding Units representing an aggregate of at least 10% of the total Liquidating Trust Interests shall determine. Written notice of any such meeting of the Beneficiaries shall be given by the Beneficiaries holding Units representing an aggregate of at least 10% of the total Liquidating Trust Interests, which written notice will set forth the time and place of such meeting and in general terms the action proposed to be taken at such meeting, and shall be mailed not more than ninety (90) nor less than ten (10) days before such meeting is to be held to all of the Beneficiaries as of the record date fixed by the Beneficiaries holding Units representing an aggregate of at least 10% of the total Liquidating Trust Interests in their sole discretion. The notice shall be directed to the Beneficiaries at their respective addresses as they appear in the records of the Liquidating Trust. At such meeting, any Beneficiary shall be entitled to nominate candidates for appointment to serve as successor Trustee(s). At any such meeting, successor Trustee(s) shall be appointed by a plurality vote of the Beneficiaries present in person or by proxy at such meeting.

8.3. Acceptance of Appointment by Successor Trustee. Any successor Trustee appointed hereunder shall execute an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder and shall file such acceptance with the Liquidating Trust records. Thereupon, such successor Trustee shall, without any further act, become vested with all the estates, properties, rights, powers, trusts and duties of its predecessor in the Liquidating Trust with like effect as if originally named herein; provided, however, that a resigning Trustee shall, nevertheless, when requested in writing by the successor Trustee, execute and deliver an instrument or instruments conveying and transferring to such successor Trustee under the Liquidating Trust all the estates, properties, rights, powers and trusts of such predecessor Trustee.

8.4. Notice to Beneficiaries of Successor Trustee. Upon a successor Trustee becoming vested with all the estates, properties, rights, powers, trusts and duties of its predecessor in the Liquidating Trust, the Beneficiaries shall be notified of such pursuant to, and in accordance with, Section 14.5-813(b) of the Act.

ARTICLE 9

LIMITATION ON LIABILITY; INDEMNIFICATION

9.1. Generally. In no event shall any Trustee be subject to any personal liability whatsoever to any person in connection with the Liquidating Trust Assets or the affairs of the Liquidating Trust, except to the extent this Section 9.1 is unenforceable pursuant to Section 14.5-906 of the Act or except for misconduct intentionally committed in bad faith; and provided, further that:

(a) no Trustee shall be required to perform any duties or obligations except for the performance of such duties and obligations as are specifically set forth in this Agreement, and no implied covenants or obligations shall be read into this Agreement against any Trustee;

 

17


(b) in the absence of bad faith on the part of a Trustee, each Trustee may conclusively rely, as to the truth, accuracy and completeness thereof, on the statements and certificates or opinions furnished to such Trustee and conforming to the requirements of this Agreement;

(c) no Trustee shall be liable for any error of judgment made in good faith;

(d) a Trustee may rely, and shall be fully protected in relying on, the books and records of the Company or the Liquidating Trust and upon such information, opinions, reports or statements presented by another Trustee, any Beneficiary or any employee of the Liquidating Trust or any other person as to matters the Trustee believes are within such other person’s professional or expert competence, including information, opinions, reports and statements as to the value or amount of assets or reserves or contracts, agreements or other undertakings that would be sufficient to pay Liabilities or claims and obligations of the Liquidating Trust or to make reasonable provisions to pay such Liabilities, claims and obligations, or any other facts pertinent to the existence and amounts from which distributions to Beneficiaries or creditors might be properly paid;

(e) no Trustee shall be liable with respect to any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it at the written direction of the Beneficiaries where such direction has been approved by the affirmative vote of or written consents of Beneficiaries holding Units representing a majority of the Liquidating Trust Interests; and

(f) no Trustee shall be responsible for the acts or omissions of any successor Trustee, nor shall any successor Trustee be responsible for the acts or omission of a predecessor Trustee.

9.2. Indemnification of Trustee. Each Trustee and each of the employees and agents appointed or employed by the Trustees pursuant to this Agreement, if any (each an “Indemnified Person” and collectively, the “Indemnified Persons”) shall be indemnified out of all Liquidating Trust Assets against all liabilities and expenses, including amounts paid in satisfaction of judgments, in compromise or as fines and penalties, and all costs and expenses, including, but not limited to, reasonable counsel fees and disbursements paid or incurred in investigating or defending against any such claim, demand, action, suit or proceeding by the Indemnified Persons in connection with the defense or disposition of any action, suit or other proceeding by the Liquidating Trust or any other Person, whether civil or criminal, in which the Indemnified Person may be involved or with which the Indemnified Person may be threatened while in office or thereafter, by reason of its or his or her being or having been such a Trustee, employee or agent; provided, however, that the Indemnified Person shall not be entitled to such indemnification to the extent that the Indemnified Person shall have been finally adjudicated to have engaged in misconduct intentionally committed in bad faith. The rights accruing to any Indemnified Person under these provisions shall not exclude any other right to which the Indemnified Person may be lawfully entitled. The Trustees shall cause the Liquidating Trust to make advance payments in connection with indemnification under this Section 9.2, provided, that the Indemnified Person shall have given a written undertaking to repay any amount advanced to the Indemnified Person and to reimburse the Liquidating Trust in the event it is

 

18


subsequently determined in a final adjudication by a court of law that the Indemnified Person is not entitled to such indemnification. The Trustees may purchase with the Liquidating Trust Assets such insurance as they believe, in the exercise of their sole discretion, adequately insures that each Indemnified Person shall be indemnified against any such loss, liability or damage pursuant to this Section 9.2. The rights accruing to any Indemnified Person by reason of the foregoing shall not be deemed to exclude any other right to which he, she or it may legally be entitled nor shall anything else contained herein restrict the right of the Trustees to indemnify or reimburse such Indemnified Person in any proper case even though not specifically provided for herein, nor shall anything contained herein restrict the right of any such Indemnified Person to contribution under applicable law. As security for the timely and full payment and satisfaction of all of the present and future obligations of the parties to the Trustees under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the indemnity obligations hereunder, whether joint or several, the Liquidating Trust (and by accepting distributions hereunder, each Beneficiary) hereby grants to the Trustees, as to the Beneficiaries, a continuing security interest in and to any and all of the Liquidating Trust Assets, whether now existing or hereafter acquired or created, together with the products and proceeds thereof, all payments and other distributions with respect thereto, and any and all investments, renewals, substitutions, modifications and extensions of any and all of the foregoing. In addition, in the event any Trustee has not received any payment, indemnity, reimbursement or other amount due it under this Agreement, then, notwithstanding any other term or provision of this Agreement, such Trustee may, in its discretion, set off and apply any of the Liquidating Trust Assets as is required to pay and satisfy those obligations. Promptly after the receipt by the Trustees of notice of any demand or claim or the commencement of any action, suit or proceeding, the Trustees shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against any of the other parties hereto, notify such other parties thereof in writing; but the failure by the Trustees to give such notice shall not relieve any party from any liability which such party may have to the Trustees hereunder. Notwithstanding any obligation to make payments and deliveries hereunder, the Trustees may retain and hold for such time as they reasonably deem necessary such amount of the Liquidating Trust Assets as the Trustees shall from time to time, in their sole discretion, reasonably deem sufficient to indemnify the Trustees for any such loss or expense and for any amounts due to the Trustees hereunder. Except as required by law or as expressly provided herein, the Trustees shall be under no duty to institute any suit, or to take any remedial procedures under this Agreement, or to enter any appearance or in any way defend any suit in which any Trustee may be made a defendant hereunder until the Trustees shall be indemnified as provided above, except as expressly set forth herein.

In the event that any Liquidating Trust Asset includes one or more obligations that are payable over a period that ends after the third (3rd) anniversary of the Transfer Time, the Trustees annually will compile and disseminate to each Beneficiary all available tax return information with respect to interest (stated or unstated) and otherwise necessary or useful in reporting under the installment method.

Spirit MTA REIT Completes Transfer of Remaining Assets to SMTA Liquidating Trust

DALLAS, Texas, January 2, 2020 — SMTA LIQUIDATING TRUST (the “Liquidating Trust”) announced today that, pursuant to the Plan of Voluntary Liquidation approved by the board of trustees of Spirit MTA REIT (The “Company”) on July 11, 2019, and the shareholders of the Company on September 4, 2019, effective as of January 1, 2020, at 12:01 A.M. Eastern Time (the “Effective Time”), the Company transferred all of its assets (subject to all of its liabilities) to a newly-created liquidating trust called “SMTA Liquidating Trust”, a Maryland common law trust, for the benefit of the shareholders of the Company and, in connection with such transfer, the Liquidating Trust distributed all of the units of beneficial interests of the Liquidating Trust to the shareholders of the Company, with each shareholder receiving one Liquidating Trust Unit for each common share of the Company then held of record by such shareholder. As of the Effective Time, all outstanding Company Shares were cancelled, and the Company was dissolved and terminated.

Under the Trust Agreement, the Liquidating Trust units are not transferable or assignable, except by will, intestate succession or operation of law. The Liquidating Trust units are not certificated and are not listed on any exchange or quoted on any quotation system or otherwise tradeable in any public or private transactions.

In accordance with the Plan of Liquidation, the Liquidating Trust was created pursuant to a Liquidating Trust Agreement, dated as of January 1, 2020, between the Company and each of the four trustees of the Company, in their capacities as trustees of the Liquidating Trust. The purpose of the Liquidating Trust is to wind up the affairs of the Company, liquidate the Company’s remaining assets, pay any liabilities, costs and expenses of the Company which were assumed by the Liquidating Trust and/or incurred by the Liquidating Trust, and distribute the net proceeds to the holders of the Liquidating Trust units.

The four trustees of the Company will be the initial trustees of the Liquidating Trust and, in that capacity, are vested with the authority to manage the Liquidating Trust. A wholly owned subsidiary of Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. will manage the day-to-day affairs of the Liquidating Trust and the liquidation of the assets of the Liquidating Trust, at all times subject to the supervision of the trustees of the Liquidating Trust.
