Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On February 27, 2020, we entered into a share exchange agreement pursuant to which we agreed to sell our controlling interest in HCIC Holdings, LLC, which owns 5,062 shares of Huerfano-Cucharas Irrigation Company (“HCIC”), a mutual irrigation company and owner of water infrastructure assets and infrastructure rights in Huerfano County, Colorado, including the Cucharas Dam. The Cucharas Dam is located 13 miles northeast of Walsenburg, Colorado on the Cucharas River, and consists of 22 miles of potential shoreline, water rights of 31,958 acre-feet decreed, 34,404 acre-feet conditional, and 41,200 acre-feet of storage rights.
The agreement between the companies consists of WaterVault paying Two Rivers $500,000 cash, and issuing a $1,000,000 line of credit, 6,000,000 shares of common stock and $58,969,000 of preferred stock in WaterVault. WaterVault will assume the related $10,000,000 debt from Two Rivers, and is responsible for securing an estimated $40,000,0000 financing for future Cucharas Dam construction obligations. In January 2019, the Cucharas Dam’s structure was razed by the Colorado State Office of Engineers as a result of insufficient capital needed to comply with reconstruction.
