The addition of Strategic’s properties expands our portfolio to 65 properties across 20 states with 9 tenants and is expected to be immediately accretive to GLPI’s operating results. Strategic is led by CEO J. Grant Lincoln who formed the company in 2009.

With the initial transaction and our right of first refusal on growth opportunities, we look forward to the start of a long-term mutually beneficial relationship with Grant and Strategic. Our initiatives to expand our portfolio remain active in the current environment as our reputation as the gaming landlord of choice is further strengthened and reinforced by this transaction.”

J. Grant Lincoln, Strategics’ CEO added, “We are pleased to begin our partnership with GLPI. Our operating approach, informed by decades of successful experience in competitive gaming markets, is laser focused on bottom line results. Our platform is well positioned for thoughtful, ongoing growth.

Silverado is expected to begin construction on a hotel renovation in 2024, using a portion of the $5 million in capital improvement proceeds funded by GLPI at the closing of the transactions.
