EL SEGUNDO, Calif., March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP (the "Partnership") (NASDAQ: LMRK), Landmark Dividend's publicly-traded affiliate, has announced the rollout of its Unit Exchange Program (UEP), a product that allows property owners to contribute their infrastructure ground leases to the Partnership in exchange for common units in the Partnership.
Select targeted features of the Unit Exchange Program include:
- Quarterly Distributions. Units received by property owners under the program would be entitled to receive quarterly distributions announced by the Partnership on its common units;
- Tax Deferral. Unlike a sale, gains on the contributed ground lease may be tax-deferred because, in many cases, an exchange of property, such as a lease, for Partnership units does not immediately trigger gain at the property level, similar in some ways to a 1031 (like-kind) exchange;
- Diversification. Ground lease property owners mitigate concentration risk on their infrastructure asset because they would be invested in a publicly-traded partnership currently owning over 1,400 assets, primarily leased to major wireless carriers, tower, outdoor advertising and renewable energy companies.
"Our Unit Exchange Program offers compelling benefits for ground lease property owners with a cell tower, rooftop antenna, billboard, wind turbine or solar project on their property," said Jeff Knyal, Vice Chairman of Landmark Dividend. "Not only is their rental income replaced with the distributions made by the Partnership, but the transaction itself may be tax-deferred and offers greater diversification than having an income stream from a single asset."
To learn more about the Unit Exchange Program, please view the informational UEP video, download a product flyer and review the FAQs. Ground lease landlords can also contact Landmark Dividend at 1-800-843-2024 for more information.
The Partnership has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") for the offering to which this press release relates. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus in that registration statement and other documents the Partnership has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the Partnership and the UEP. You may get these documents for free by visiting EDGAR on the Securities and Exchange Commission website at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, Landmark Dividend will arrange to send you the prospectus if you request it by calling toll-free 1-800-843-2024.
Any offering of UEP units will be made solely by means of the prospectus included in the registration statement and the related documents the Partnership has filed with the SEC.
