Regulation FD Disclosure
On March 8, 2021, ARKO Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), issued a press release announcing that the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, GPM Investments, LLC, entered into an agreement to acquire 61 convenience stores with gas stations in Michigan and Ohio, operating under the ExpressStop banner. The aggregate purchase price to be paid to the seller is approximately $102.0 million plus the value of inventory and cash at the acquired locations. Of the aggregate purchase price, approximately $92.0 million will be paid to the seller by two unrelated real estate funds that have agreed with the Company to acquire directly from the seller the real estate related to most of the acquired convenience store locations. These real estate funds have agreed to lease such locations to the Company under customary leases, including the grant of an option to the Company to purchase the real estate with respect to 26 locations following an initial four-year period. Consummation of the foregoing transactions is subject to customary closing conditions. A copy of such release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference in this Item 7.01.
The information contained in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1 furnished herewith, is “furnished” and not “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. Such information shall not be incorporated by reference in another filing by the Company under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except to the extent such other filing specifically incorporates such information by reference.
