Liquidating Trust

As of January 1, 2020, at 12:01 A.M. Eastern Time (the “Effective Time”), Spirit Master Trust 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.

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.
