We are a specialty real estate investment trust (REIT) that invests in properties
in select market segments which require unique industry knowledge, and offer
the potential for stable and attractive returns.
We are focused. We target long-term investments in a limited number of
market segments in which we maintain a depth of knowledge and relationships, and
which offer sustained performance throughout all economic cycles. We typically structure
our investments as triple net, placing the operating responsibilities and costs
of the property on our tenants. We believe this structure translates to reduced
risk and reliable cash flow.
We are dynamic. Our investment portfolio of over $5.3 billion includes
specialty investments within our three primary investment segments of
Entertainment, Recreation and Education. We currently have over 320 locations spread across 41
states with over 250 tenants.
We are disciplined. We thrive by adhering to rigorous underwriting and
investing criteria, centered on key industry and property level cash flow standards.
We believe our focused niche approach provides a competitive advantage, and the
potential for higher growth and better yields.
We are proven. Our specialty focus has yielded superior results. Over
the past decade we have considerably outperformed both the Russell 1000 and MSCI
US REIT Index in total return, including consistent and strong cash dividend yields.
