Explanatory Note

As previously disclosed in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 22, 2015, the Company is restating its audited financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 and its interim financial statements for the fiscal quarters ended December 31, 2013, March 31, 2014, June 30, 2014, September 30, 2014, December 31, 2014, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015.

The restatement is related to the Company's revenue recognition of percentage rents received from its tenant, Penn National Gaming, Inc., under the Master Lease Agreement (the "Master Lease"), which were previously recognized as received. As explained in Note 2 to the condensed consolidated financial statements included within this report, management has now concluded that the percentage rent that was fixed or determinable at the lease inception date should have been recorded on a straight-line basis over the initial non-cancelable lease term and any reasonably assured renewal periods. As a result of the restatement, the Company has reduced rental revenues by $14.0 million and $27.9 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively and $10.0 million and $20.0 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, resulting in deferred rental revenue of $79.5 million and $51.6 million at June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. An increase in deferred rental revenue of the same amount was recorded on the Company's consolidated balance sheets during the respective periods. This deferred rent liability will be amortized over the remainder of the 35 year aggregate lease term on a straight-line basis by recognizing rental revenue, thus changing only the timing of the Company’s revenue recognition.

This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-Q/A ("Form 10-Q/A") to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2015, initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on July 30, 2015 (the "Original Filing"), is being filed to reflect the restatement of (i) the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 and (ii) the Company's condensed consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' deficit and cash flows for the periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, and the notes related thereto. For a more detailed description of these restatements see Note 2 to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements in this Form 10-Q/A.

For the convenience of the reader, this Form 10-Q/A sets forth the Original Filing in its entirety. However, this Form 10-Q/A only amends and restates Items 1, 2 and 4 of Part I and Item 6 of Part II of the Original Filing, in each case, as a result of, and to reflect the restatement. No other information in the Original Filing is amended. In addition, pursuant to the rules of the SEC, Item 6 of Part II of the Original Filing has been amended to contain the currently-dated certifications from our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as required by Sections 302 and 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The certifications of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are attached to this Form 10-Q/A as Exhibits 31.1, 32.1, 31.2 and 32.2, respectively.

Forward-looking statements in this document are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements of Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc. ("GLPI") and its subsidiaries (collectively, the "Company") to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include information concerning the Company’s business strategy, plans, and goals and objectives.
 
Statements preceded by, followed by or that otherwise include the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "projects," "estimates," "plans," "may increase," "may fluctuate," and similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as "will," "should," "would," "may" and "could" are generally forward-looking in nature and not historical facts. You should understand that the following important factors could affect future results and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements:
 
the ability to receive, or delays in obtaining, the regulatory approvals required to own, develop and/or operate our properties, or other delays or impediments to completing our planned acquisitions or projects;

the ultimate timing and outcome of the Company's proposed acquisition of substantially all of the real estate assets of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. ("Pinnacle"), including the Company’s and Pinnacle’s ability to obtain the financing and third party approvals and consents necessary to complete the acquisition;
    
the ultimate outcome and results of integrating the assets to be acquired by the Company in the proposed transaction with Pinnacle;

the effects of a transaction between GLPI and Pinnacle on each party, including the post-transaction impact on GLPI’s financial condition, operating results, strategy and plans;

the outcome of our lawsuit against Cannery Casino Resorts LLC ("CCR"), the owner of the Meadows Racetrack and Casino ("the Meadows"), alleging among other things, fraud, breach of the agreement to acquire the Meadows and breach of the related consulting agreement;

our ability to maintain our status as a real estate investment trust ("REIT"), given the highly technical and complex Internal Revenue Code (the "Code") provisions for which only limited judicial and administrative authorities exist, where even a technical or inadvertent violation could jeopardize REIT status and where requirements may depend in part on the actions of third parties over which the Company has no control or only limited influence;
 
the satisfaction of certain asset, income, organizational, distribution, shareholder ownership and other requirements on a continuing basis in order for the Company to maintain its elected REIT status;
 
the ability and willingness of our tenants, operators and other third parties to meet and/or perform their obligations under their respective contractual arrangements with us, including, in some cases, their obligations to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from and against various claims, litigation and liabilities;
 
the ability of our tenants and operators to maintain the financial strength and liquidity necessary to satisfy their respective obligations and liabilities to third parties, including without limitation obligations under their existing credit facilities and other indebtedness;
 
the ability of our tenants and operators to comply with laws, rules and regulations in the operation of our properties, to deliver high quality services, to attract and retain qualified personnel and to attract customers;
 
the availability of and the ability to identify suitable and attractive acquisition and development opportunities and the ability to acquire and lease the respective properties on favorable terms;
 
the degree and nature of our competition;
 
the ability to generate sufficient cash flows to service our outstanding indebtedness;
 
the access to debt and equity capital markets;
 
fluctuating interest rates;

the availability of qualified personnel and our ability to retain our key management personnel;
 
GLPI’s duty to indemnify Penn National Gaming, Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Penn") in certain circumstances if the spin-off transaction, described in Note 1 to the condensed consolidated financial statements, fails to be tax-free;
 
changes in the United States tax law and other state, federal or local laws, whether or not specific to real estate, real estate investment trusts or to the gaming, lodging or hospitality industries;
 
changes in accounting standards;
 
the impact of weather events or conditions, natural disasters, acts of terrorism and other international hostilities, war or political instability;
 
other risks inherent in the real estate business, including potential liability relating to environmental matters and illiquidity of real estate investments; and

additional factors as discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2014, subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q/A and Current Reports on Form 8-K as filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
Certain of these factors and other factors, risks and uncertainties are discussed in the "Risk Factors" section in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2014. Other unknown or unpredictable factors may also cause actual results to differ materially from those projected by the forward-looking statements. Most of these factors are difficult to anticipate and are generally beyond the control of the Company.
 
You should consider the areas of risk described above, as well as those set forth in the "Risk Factors" section in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2014, in connection with considering any forward-looking statements that may be made by the Company generally. Except for the ongoing obligations of the Company to disclose material information under the federal securities laws, the Company does not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements, to report events or to report the occurrence of unanticipated events unless required to do so by law.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

1.              Organization and Operations
 
Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc. ("GLPI") is a self-administered and self-managed Pennsylvania real estate investment trust ("REIT"). GLPI (together with its subsidiaries, the "Company") was incorporated on February 13, 2013, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Penn National Gaming, Inc. ("Penn"). On November 1, 2013, Penn contributed to GLPI, through a series of internal corporate restructurings, substantially all of the assets and liabilities associated with Penn’s real property interests and real estate development business, as well as the assets and liabilities of Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge and Hollywood Casino Perryville, which are referred to as the "TRS Properties," and then spun-off GLPI to holders of Penn's common and preferred stock in a tax-free distribution (the "Spin-Off"). The Company elected on its United States ("U.S.") federal income tax return for its taxable year beginning on January 1, 2014 to be treated as a REIT and the Company, together with an indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, GLP Holdings, Inc., jointly elected to treat each of GLP Holdings, Inc., Louisiana Casino Cruises, Inc. (d/b/a Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge) and Penn Cecil Maryland, Inc. (d/b/a Hollywood Casino Perryville) as a "taxable REIT subsidiary" ("TRS") effective on the first day of the first taxable year of GLPI as a REIT. As a result of the Spin-Off, GLPI owns substantially all of Penn’s former real property assets and leases back most of those assets to Penn for use by its subsidiaries, under a master lease, a triple-net operating lease with an initial term of 15 years with no purchase option, followed by four 5 year renewal options (exercisable by Penn) on the same terms and conditions (the "Master Lease"), and GLPI also owns and operates the TRS Properties through an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, GLP Holdings, Inc.
 
GLPI’s primary business consists of acquiring, financing, and owning real estate property to be leased to gaming operators in triple-net lease arrangements. As of June 30, 2015, GLPI’s portfolio consisted of 21 gaming and related facilities, including the TRS Properties, the real property associated with 18 gaming and related facilities operated by Penn and the real property associated with the Casino Queen in East St. Louis, Illinois.  These facilities are geographically diversified across 12 states.
 
In connection with the Spin-Off, Penn allocated its accumulated earnings and profits (as determined for U.S. federal income tax purposes) for periods prior to the consummation of the Spin-Off between Penn and GLPI. In connection with its election to be taxed as a REIT for U.S. federal income tax purposes, GLPI declared a special dividend to its shareholders to distribute any accumulated earnings and profits relating to the real property assets and attributable to any pre-REIT years, including any earnings and profits allocated to GLPI in connection with the Spin-Off, to comply with certain REIT qualification requirements (the "Purging Distribution"). The Purging Distribution, which was paid on February 18, 2014, totaled approximately $1.05 billion and was comprised of cash and GLPI common stock. Additionally, pursuant to the terms of a Pre-Filing Agreement with the IRS, on December 19, 2014, the Company made a one-time distribution of $37.0 million to shareholders in order to confirm the Company appropriately allocated its historical earnings and profits relative to the separation from Penn. See Note 10 for further details.
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.
 
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of GLPI and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses for the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2015. The notes to the consolidated financial statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2014 (our "Annual Report") should be read in conjunction with these condensed consolidated financial statements.  The December 31, 2014 financial information has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements.

2. Restatement of Financial Statements

The restatement of the Company's interim financial statements relates to the Company's revenue recognition of percentage rents received from its tenant, Penn National Gaming, Inc., under the Master Lease. Previously, management concluded that the portion of the rent under the Master Lease classified as percentage rent and subject to re-sets every five years should be recognized as revenue as received during the first five years of the Master Lease when such rent was known. Management has now concluded that the percentage rent that was fixed or determinable at the lease inception date should have been recorded on a straight-line basis over the initial non-cancelable lease term and any reasonably assured renewals terms.

As a result of the restatement, the Company will reduce rental revenues during the first five years of the Master Lease and increase rental revenues over the remaining 30 years of the lease. Concurrent with the reduction in recognized rental revenues during the first five years of the Master Lease, the Company will record a deferred rent liability of the same amount to its balance sheet. This deferred rent liability will be amortized over the remainder of the 35 year lease term on a straight-line basis by recognizing rental revenue, thus changing only the timing of the Company’s revenue recognition. Accordingly, while the timing of the Company’s revenue recognition has been changed as a result of this revised accounting treatment, this adjustment is non-cash and the restatement does not affect the economic terms or substance of the Master Lease, including the total amount of rent paid or to be paid by the tenant.

The primary effect of the adjustments was to reduce rental revenues by $14.0 million and $27.9 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively and $10.0 million and $20.0 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. An increase to deferred rental revenue of the same amount was recorded on the Company's consolidated balance sheets during the respective periods, resulting in deferred rental revenue of $79.5 million and $51.6 million at June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

The condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q/A have been restated to reflect the adjustments described above. The restatement has been set forth, for the periods presented, in Amendment No. 1 to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 which the Company has filed concurrently with this Form 10-Q/A.

The following is a summary of the effect of the restatement on (i) the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 (ii) the Company's condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 and (iii) the Company's condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. The Company did not present a summary of the effect of the restatement on the condensed consolidated statement of changes in shareholders' deficit for any of the above referenced periods because the impact to retained earnings on the condensed consolidated statement of changes in shareholders' deficit is reflected below in the balance sheet summary.

3.    New Accounting Pronouncements

In April 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2015-05, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement ("ASU 2015-05"). This ASU provides guidance on determining whether a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license, the accounting treatment of such a software license to be consistent with that of other licensed intangible assets, and the treatment of service agreements within cloud computing arrangements as

12

Table of Contents

service contracts. ASU 2015-05 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015 and may be applied on a prospective or retrospective basis. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2015-05 and does not believe its adoption will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operation.

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Interest - Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs ("ASU 2015-03"). This ASU requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct reduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with the presentation of debt discounts. ASU 2015-03 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015 and will be applied on a retrospective basis, wherein the balance sheet of each period presented will be adjusted to reflect the period-specific effects of applying the new guidance. Consistent with current guidance, the Company currently recognizes its debt issuance costs as deferred charges or assets on its balance sheet. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2015-03 and does not believe its adoption will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operation, as it believes only a balance sheet reclassification between assets and liabilities will be required upon adoption of the new standard.
 
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) ("ASU 2014-09"). This new standard will replace all current U.S. GAAP guidance on this topic and eliminate all industry-specific guidance. ASU 2014-09 provides a unified model to determine when and how revenue is recognized. The core principle is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration for which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. At the April 1, 2015 FASB meeting, the board voted to defer the effective date for the new revenue recognition standard to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The pronouncement was originally effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and companies are permitted to elect the adoption of the standard as of the original effective date. When adopted, the new guidance can be applied either retrospectively to each period presented or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting this new accounting standard on its financial statements and internal revenue recognition policies.
 
4.              Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The following methods and assumptions are used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate:
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
The fair value of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents approximates the carrying value of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, due to the short maturity of the cash equivalents.

Deferred Compensation Plan Assets and Corresponding Liabilities

The Company's deferred compensation plan assets consist of open-ended mutual funds and as such the fair value measurement of the assets is considered a Level 1 measurement as defined under Accounting Standards Code ("ASC") 820 "Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures." Deferred compensation plan assets are included within other current assets on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. Deferred compensation liabilities approximate the plan's assets and are included with current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The difference between the Company's deferred compensation plan assets and liabilities at both June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 is related to timing differences between the funding of assets held at the plan trustee and the actual contributions from eligible employees' compensation.

Loan Receivable

The fair value of the loan receivable approximates the carrying value of the Company's loan receivable, as collection on the outstanding loan balance is reasonably assured and the interest rate approximates market rates for a similar instrument.

Long-term Debt
 
The fair value of the senior unsecured notes and senior unsecured credit facility is estimated based on quoted prices in active markets and as such is a Level 1 measurement as defined under ASC 820 "Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures."

Comprehensive Income
 
Comprehensive income includes net income and all other non-owner changes in shareholders’ equity during a period. The Company did not have any non-owner changes in shareholders’ equity for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, and comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 was equivalent to net income for those time periods.
 
Revenue Recognition and Promotional Allowances
 
The Company recognizes rental revenue from tenants, including rental abatements, lease incentives and contractually fixed increases attributable to operating leases, on a straight-line basis over the term of the related leases when collectability is reasonably assured. Additionally, percentage rent that is fixed and determinable at the lease inception date is recorded on a straight-line basis over the lease term, resulting in the recognition of deferred rental revenue on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. Deferred rental revenue is amortized to rental revenue on a straight-line basis over the remainder of the lease term. The lease term includes the initial non-cancelable lease term and any reasonably assured renewable periods. Contingent rental income that is not fixed and determinable at lease inception is recognized once the lessee achieves the specified target. Recognition of rental income commences when control of the facility has been transferred to the tenant.
 
As of June 30, 2015, all but one of the Company’s real estate investment properties were leased to a subsidiary of Penn under the Master Lease. The obligations under the Master Lease are guaranteed by Penn and by most Penn subsidiaries that occupy and operate the facilities leased under the Master Lease. A default by Penn or its subsidiaries with regard to any facility will cause a default with regard to the Master Lease. In January 2014, GLPI completed the asset acquisition of Casino Queen in East St. Louis, Illinois. GLPI subsequently leased the property back to Casino Queen on a triple-net basis on terms similar to those in the Master Lease.
 
The rent structure under the Master Lease with Penn includes a fixed component, a portion of which is subject to an annual 2% escalator if certain rent coverage ratio thresholds are met, and a component that is based on the performance of the facilities, which is adjusted, subject to certain floors (i) every five years by an amount equal to 4% of the average change to net revenues of all facilities under the Master Lease (other than Hollywood Casino Columbus and Hollywood Casino Toledo) during the preceding five years, and (ii) monthly by an amount equal to 20% of the change in net revenues of Hollywood Casino Columbus and Hollywood Casino Toledo during the preceding month. In addition to rent, all properties under the Master Lease with Penn are required to pay the following: (1) all facility maintenance, (2) all insurance required in connection with the leased properties and the business conducted on the leased properties, (3) taxes levied on or with respect to the leased properties (other than taxes on the income of the lessor) and (4) all utilities and other services necessary or appropriate for the leased properties and the business conducted on the leased properties.

The rent structure under the Casino Queen lease also includes a fixed component, a portion of which is subject to an annual 2% escalator if certain rent coverage ratio thresholds are met, and a component that is based on the performance of the facility, which is reset every five years to a fixed amount equal to the greater of (i) the annual amount of non-fixed rent applicable for the lease year immediately preceding such rent reset year and (ii) an amount equal to 4% of the average annual net revenues of the facility for the trailing five year period. Similar to Master Lease, the tenant is responsible for all executory charges described in the above paragraph.

Additionally, in accordance with ASC 605, "Revenue Recognition," the Company records revenue for the real estate taxes paid by its tenants on the leased properties with an offsetting expense in real estate taxes within the condensed consolidated statement of income as the Company has concluded it is the primary obligor.
 
Gaming revenue generated by the TRS Properties mainly consists of video lottery gaming revenue, and to a lesser extent, table game and poker revenue. Video lottery gaming revenue is the aggregate net difference between gaming wins and losses with liabilities recognized for funds deposited by customers before gaming play occurs, for "ticket-in, ticket-out" coupons in the customers’ possession, and for accruals related to the anticipated payout of progressive jackpots. Progressive slot machines, which contain base jackpots that increase at a progressive rate based on the number of coins played, are charged to revenue as the amount of the jackpots increases. Table game gaming revenue is the aggregate of table drop adjusted for the change in aggregate table chip inventory. Table drop is the total dollar amount of the currency, coins, chips, tokens, outstanding counter checks (markers), and front money that are removed from the live gaming tables. Additionally, food and beverage revenue is recognized as services are performed.

Gaming and Admission Taxes
 
For the TRS Properties, the Company is subject to gaming and admission taxes based on gross gaming revenues in the jurisdictions in which it operates. The Company primarily recognizes gaming tax expense based on the statutorily required

15

Table of Contents

percentage of revenue that is required to be paid to state and local jurisdictions in the states where wagering occurs. At Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge, the gaming and admission tax is based on graduated tax rates. At Hollywood Casino Perryville, the gaming tax rate is flat. The Company records gaming and admission taxes at the Company’s estimated effective gaming tax rate for the year, considering estimated taxable gaming revenue and the applicable rates. Such estimates are adjusted each interim period. If gaming and admission tax rates change during the year, such changes are applied prospectively in the determination of gaming and admission tax expense in future interim periods.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, these expenses, which are recorded within gaming expense in the condensed consolidated statements of income, totaled $15.8 million and $30.8 million, respectively, as compared to $17.9 million and $35.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively.

Earnings Per Share
 
The Company calculates earnings per share ("EPS") in accordance with ASC 260, "Earnings Per Share." Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income applicable to common stock by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding net income attributable to participating securities (unvested restricted stock awards). Diluted EPS reflects the additional dilution for all potentially-dilutive securities such as stock options, unvested restricted shares and unvested performance-based restricted shares. In accordance with ASC 260 "Earnings per Share", the Company includes all performance-based restricted shares that would have vested based upon the Company’s performance at quarter-end in the calculation of diluted EPS. Diluted EPS for the Company's common stock is computed using the more dilutive of the two-class method or the treasury stock method.

The following table reconciles the weighted-average common shares outstanding used in the calculation of basic EPS to the weighted-average common shares outstanding used in the calculation of diluted EPS for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 (in thousands):

Stock-Based Compensation
 
The Company accounts for stock compensation under ASC 718, "Compensation - Stock Compensation," which requires the Company to expense the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award. This expense is recognized ratably over the requisite service period following the date of grant. The fair value for stock options is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The fair value of the Company's time-based restricted stock awards is equivalent to the closing stock price on the day of grant. The Company utilizes a third party valuation firm to measure the fair value of performance-based restricted stock awards at grant date using the Monte Carlo model.
 
Additionally, the cash-settled phantom stock units ("PSU") entitle employees to receive cash based on the fair value of the Company’s common stock on the vesting date. These PSUs are accounted for as liability awards and are re-measured at fair value each reporting period until they become vested with compensation expense being recognized over the requisite service period in accordance with ASC 718-30, "Compensation-Stock Compensation, Awards Classified as Liabilities."
 
In connection with the Spin-Off, each outstanding option with respect to Penn common stock outstanding on the distribution date was converted into two awards, an adjusted Penn option and a GLPI option. The adjustment preserved the aggregate intrinsic value of the options. Additionally, in connection with the Spin-Off, holders of outstanding restricted stock and PSUs with respect to Penn common stock became entitled to an additional share of restricted stock or PSU with respect to GLPI common stock for each share of Penn restricted stock or PSU held.

The adjusted options, as well as the restricted stock awards and PSUs, otherwise remain subject to their original terms, except that for purposes of the adjusted Penn awards (including in determining exercisability and the post-termination exercise period), continued service with GLPI following the distribution date shall be deemed continued service with Penn; and for purposes of the GLPI awards (including in determining exercisability and the post-termination exercise period), continued service with Penn following the distribution date shall be deemed continued service with GLPI.

The unrecognized compensation relating to both Penn and GLPI’s stock options, restricted stock awards, performance-based restricted stock awards and PSUs held by GLPI employees will be amortized to expense over the awards’ remaining vesting periods.
As of June 30, 2015, there was $1.3 million of total unrecognized compensation cost for stock options that will be recognized over the grants remaining weighted average vesting period of 0.51 years. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized $0.7 million and $1.4 million, respectively, of compensation expense associated with these awards, compared to $1.4 million and $2.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. In addition, the Company also recognized $2.9 million and $5.8 million of compensation expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, relating to each of the 2015 first and second quarter $0.545 per share dividends paid on vested employee stock options. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recognized $3.2 million and $6.5 million of compensation expense, relating to each of the 2014 first and second quarter $0.52 per share dividends paid on vested employee stock options.

Performance-based restricted stock awards have three year cliff vesting with the amount of restricted shares vesting at the end of the three-year period determined based on the Company’s performance as measured against its peers.  More specifically, the percentage of shares vesting at the end of the measurement period will be based on the Company’s three-year total shareholder return measured against the three-year return of the companies included in the MSCI US REIT index.  As of June 30, 2015, there was $14.9 million of total unrecognized compensation cost, which will be recognized over the awards remaining weighted average vesting period of 2.04 years for performance-based restricted stock awards.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized $2.0 million and $4.2 million, respectively, of compensation expense associated with these awards, compared to $0.7 million for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

million and $0.5 million, respectively, relating to the Purging Distribution dividend and the 2014 first and second quarter $0.52 per share dividends paid on unvested PSUs.
 
Upon the declaration of the Purging Distribution, GLPI options were adjusted in a manner that preserved both the pre-distribution intrinsic value of the options and the pre-distribution ratio of the stock price to exercise price that existed immediately before the Purging Distribution. Additionally, upon declaration of the Purging Distribution, holders of GLPI PSUs were credited with the special dividend, which will accrue and be paid, if applicable, on the vesting date of the related PSU. Holders of GLPI restricted stock were entitled to receive the special dividend with respect to such restricted stock on the same date or dates that the special dividend was payable on GLPI common stock to shareholders of GLPI generally.

Segment Information
 
Consistent with how the Company’s Chief Operating Decision Maker reviews and assesses the Company’s financial performance, the Company has two reportable segments, GLP Capital, L.P. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of GLPI through which GLPI owns substantially all of its assets) ("GLP Capital") and the TRS Properties. The GLP Capital reportable segment consists of the leased real property and represents the majority of the Company’s business. The TRS Properties reportable segment consists of Hollywood Casino Perryville and Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge. See Note 11 for further information with respect to the Company’s segments.
 
5.              Acquisitions
 
In January 2014, the Company completed the asset acquisition of the real property associated with the Casino Queen in East St. Louis, Illinois for $140.7 million, including transaction fees of $0.7 million.  Simultaneously with the acquisition, GLPI also provided Casino Queen with a $43.0 million, five year term loan at 7% interest, pre-payable at any time, which, together with the sale proceeds, completely refinanced and retired all of Casino Queen’s outstanding long-term debt obligations. As of June 30, 2015, principal and interest payments have reduced the balance of this loan to $32.9 million. As of March 31, 2015, Casino Queen is obligated to make mandatory principal payments on the loan on the last day of each calendar year quarter equal to 1.25% of the original loan balance. The collectability of the remaining loan balance is reasonably assured, and it is recorded at carrying value which approximates fair value. Interest income related to the loan is recorded in interest income within the Company's consolidated statement of income in the period of receipt. GLPI leased the property back to Casino Queen on a triple-net basis on terms similar to those in the Master Lease, resulting in approximately $14.0 million in annual rent. The lease has an initial term of 15 years, and the tenant has an option to renew it at the same terms and conditions for four successive five year periods.

Senior Unsecured Credit Facility

The Company has a one billion dollar senior unsecured credit facility (the "Credit Facility"), consisting of a $700.0 million revolving credit facility and a $300.0 million Term Loan A facility. The Credit Facility matures on October 28, 2018. At June 30, 2015, the Credit Facility had a gross outstanding balance of $515.0 million, consisting of the $300.0 million Term Loan A facility and $215.0 million of borrowings under the revolving credit facility. Additionally, at June 30, 2015, the Company was contingently obligated under letters of credit issued pursuant to the senior unsecured credit facility with face amounts aggregating approximately $0.9 million, resulting in $484.1 million of available borrowing capacity under the revolving credit facility as of June 30, 2015.

The Credit Facility contains customary covenants that, among other things, restrict, subject to certain exceptions, the ability of GLPI and its subsidiaries to grant liens on their assets, incur indebtedness, sell assets, make investments, engage in acquisitions, mergers or consolidations or pay certain dividends and other restricted payments. The Credit Facility contains the

Table of Contents

following financial covenants, which are measured quarterly on a trailing four-quarter basis: a maximum total debt to total asset value ratio, a maximum senior secured debt to total asset value ratio, a maximum ratio of certain recourse debt to unencumbered asset value and a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio. In addition, GLPI is required to maintain a minimum tangible net worth and its status as a REIT on and after the effective date of its election to be treated as a REIT, which the Company elected on its 2014 U.S. federal income tax return. GLPI is permitted to pay dividends to its shareholders as may be required in order to maintain REIT status, subject to the absence of payment or bankruptcy defaults. GLPI is also permitted to make other dividends and distributions subject to pro forma compliance with the financial covenants and the absence of defaults. The Credit Facility also contains certain customary affirmative covenants and events of default, including the occurrence of a change of control and termination of the Master Lease (subject to certain replacement rights). The occurrence and continuance of an event of default under the Credit Facility will enable the lenders under the Credit Facility to accelerate the loans and terminate the commitments thereunder. At June 30, 2015, the Company was in compliance with all required covenants under the Credit Facility.

Senior Unsecured Notes
 
Each of the 4.375% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes"); 4.875% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2020 (the "2020 Notes"); and 5.375% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes," and collectively with the 2018 Notes and 2020 Notes, the "Notes") contains covenants limiting the Company’s ability to: incur additional debt and use its assets to secure debt; merge or consolidate with another company; and make certain amendments to the Master Lease. The Notes also require the Company to maintain a specified ratio of unencumbered assets to unsecured debt. These covenants are subject to a number of important and significant limitations, qualifications and exceptions.
 
At June 30, 2015, the Company was in compliance with all required covenants under the Notes.

Capital Lease

The Company assumed the capital lease obligation related to certain assets at its Aurora, Illinois property. GLPI recorded the asset and liability associated with the capital lease on its balance sheet. The original term of the capital lease was 30 years and it will terminate in 2026.

9.              Commitments and Contingencies
 
Litigation
On May 14, 2014, the Company announced that it entered into an agreement with CCR to acquire The Meadows Racetrack and Casino located in Washington, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  The agreement provides that closing of the acquisition is subject to, among other things, the accuracy of CCR’s representations and its compliance with the covenants set forth in the agreement, as well as the approval of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and Pennsylvania Racing Commission.  On October 27, 2014, the Company filed a lawsuit in the Southern District of New York against CCR alleging, among other things, fraud, breach of the agreement and breach of the related consulting agreement entered into at the same time. The lawsuit was subsequently re-filed in New York state court on January 7, 2015 for procedural reasons. The Company asserts claims that CCR has breached the agreements, with the Company seeking return of $10.0 million paid pursuant to a related consulting agreement and an unspecified amount of additional damages.  The Company further seeks a declaration that a material adverse effect has occurred that excuses CCR from consummating the agreement.  The Company will further evaluate and consider all other remedies available to it, including termination of the agreements.
Although the Company intends to pursue its claims vigorously, there can be no assurance that the Company will prevail on any of the claims in the action, or, if the Company does prevail on one or more of the claims, of the amount of recovery that may be awarded to the Company for such claim(s). In addition, the timing and resolution of the claims set forth in the lawsuit are unpredictable and the Company is not able to currently predict any effect this suit may have on closing of the transaction.
Pursuant to a Separation and Distribution Agreement between Penn and GLPI, any liability arising from or relating to legal proceedings involving the businesses and operations of Penn’s real property holdings prior to the Spin-Off (other than any liability arising from or relating to legal proceedings where the dispute arises from the operation or ownership of the TRS Properties) will be retained by Penn, and Penn will indemnify GLPI (and its subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees and agents and certain other related parties) against any losses it may incur arising from or relating to such legal proceedings. There can be no assurance that Penn will be able to fully satisfy its indemnification obligations. Moreover, even if we ultimately succeed in recovering from Penn any amounts for which we are liable, we may be temporarily required to bear those losses.

Table of Contents

The Company is subject to various legal and administrative proceedings relating to personal injuries, employment matters, commercial transactions, and other matters arising in the normal course of business. The Company does not believe that the final outcome of these matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations. In addition, the Company maintains what it believes is adequate insurance coverage to further mitigate the risks of such proceedings. However, such proceedings can be costly, time consuming, and unpredictable and, therefore, no assurance can be given that the final outcome of such proceedings may not materially impact the Company’s financial condition or results of operations. Further, no assurance can be given that the amount or scope of existing insurance coverage will be sufficient to cover losses arising from such matters.

In addition for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, dividend payments were made to or accrued for GLPI restricted stock award holders and for both GLPI and Penn unvested employee stock options in the amount of $0.5 million and $1.1 million, respectively, as compared to $1.0 million and $2.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively.

Additionally, on February 18, 2014, GLPI made the Purging Distribution, which totaled $1.05 billion and was comprised of cash and GLPI common stock, to distribute the accumulated earnings and profits related to the real property assets and attributable to any pre-REIT years, including any earnings and profits allocated to GLPI in connection with the Spin-Off. Shareholders were given the option to elect either an all-cash or all-stock dividend, subject to a total cash limitation of $210.0 million. Of the 88,691,827 shares of common stock outstanding on the record date, approximately 54.3% elected the cash distribution and approximately 45.7% elected a stock distribution or made no election. Shareholders electing cash received $4.358049 plus 0.195747 additional GLPI shares per common share held on the record date. Shareholders electing stock or not making an election received 0.309784 additional GLPI shares per common share held on the record date. Stock dividends were paid based on the volume weighted average price for the three trading days ended February 13, 2014 of $38.2162 per share. Approximately 22.0 million shares were issued in connection with this dividend payment.  In addition, cash distributions were made to GLPI and Penn employee restricted stock award holders in the amount of $1.0 million for the Purging Distribution. 
Additionally, pursuant to the terms of a Pre-Filing Agreement with the IRS, on December 19, 2014, the Company made a one-time distribution of $37.0 million to shareholders in order to confirm the Company appropriately allocated its historical earnings and profits relative to the separation from Penn. In addition, cash distributions were made to or accrued for both GLPI restricted stock award holders and GLPI and Penn unvested employee stock options in the amount of $0.7 million for this one-time distribution.
