Lamar Advertising Company Announces Fourth Quarter And Year End 2012 Operating Results

Real Estate Investment Trust Update

As previously disclosed, we are actively considering an election to real estate investment trust (REIT) status. On November 16, 2012, in conjunction with our review regarding a potential REIT election, we submitted a private letter ruling request to the Internal Revenue Service. If we receive a favorable response and decide to proceed with a REIT election, we intend to make the election for the taxable year beginning January 1, 2014, subject to the approval of our board of directors. A favorable IRS ruling, if received, does not guarantee that we would succeed in qualifying as a REIT and there is no certainty as to the timing of a REIT election or whether we will ultimately decide to make a REIT election.


For the first quarter of 2013 the Company expects net revenue to be approximately $282 million to $285 million. On a pro forma basis this represents an increase of approximately 2% to 3%.
