Medical Properties Trust Comments on Delayed Form 10-Q Filing and Related Notice From NYSE

As described in the Form 12b-25 previously filed by Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (the “Company” or “MPT”) (NYSE: MPW) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), the Company is delayed in the timely filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2024 (the “Quarterly Report”) due to additional review procedures required in light of the voluntary bankruptcy petition filed by Steward Health Care System LLC just days prior to the due date for the Quarterly Report. The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PWC”) has further advised that it requires additional time to complete its interim review of the Quarterly Report. The Company and PWC continue to dedicate significant resources to complete the necessary work to file the Quarterly Report with the SEC as soon as practicable.

On May 16, 2024, due to the delayed filing of the Quarterly Report, the Company received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s timely filing criteria set forth in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual. The notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the NYSE. Under NYSE rules, the Company has six months from May 15, 2024 to regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards by filing the Quarterly Report with the SEC, subject to an additional six-month extension at the NYSE's discretion.
