Note 1. Organization and Description of Business
Uniti Group Inc. (the “Company,” “Uniti,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) was incorporated in the state of Maryland on September 4, 2014. We are an independent, internally managed real estate investment trust (“REIT”) engaged in the acquisition, construction and leasing of mission critical infrastructure in the communications industry. We are principally focused on acquiring and constructing fiber optic, copper and coaxial broadband networks and data centers. We have historically managed our operations in four separate lines of business: Uniti Fiber, Uniti Towers, Uniti Leasing, and the Consumer CLEC Business. On June 1, 2020, the Company completed the sale of its Uniti Towers business, and as of the end of the second quarter of 2020, the Company had substantially completed the wind down of its Consumer CLEC business. As a result, effective January 1, 2021, we manage our operations focused on our two primary lines of business: Uniti Fiber and Uniti Leasing.
The Company operates through a customary “up-REIT” structure, pursuant to which we hold substantially all of our assets through a partnership, Uniti Group LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Operating Partnership”), that we control as general partner, with the only significant difference between the financial position and results of operations of the Operating Partnership and its subsidiaries compared to the consolidated financial position and consolidated results of operations of Uniti is that the results for the Operating Partnership and its subsidiaries do not include Uniti’s Consumer CLEC segment, which consists of Talk America Services (“Talk America”), which we substantially completed the wind down of the business as of the end of the second quarter of 2020. The up-REIT structure is intended to facilitate future acquisition opportunities by providing the Company with the ability to use common units of the Operating Partnership as a tax-efficient acquisition currency. As of December 31, 2021, we are the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership and own approximately 99.7% of the partnership interests in the Operating Partnership.
