On February 6, 2020, Maui Land & Pineapple Company, Inc., a Hawaii corporation (“MLP” or “Company”), entered into that certain Purchase and Sale Agreement and Escrow Instructions (“Purchase Agreement”) with KCRMD, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“KCRMD”), pursuant to which MLP agrees to sell to KCRMD and KCRMD agrees to purchase from MLP approximately 46 acres of property located in the Kapalua Resort, commonly known as the Kapalua Central Resort project (the “Property”).


The purchase price for the Property is $43,850,000. Terms of the Purchase Agreement include a due diligence period ending on July 31, 2020 and a closing date 45 days after the last day of the due diligence period. The closing is also subject to other customary closing conditions, including, among other things, delivery of a title policy to KCRMD. KCRMD will deposit $500,000 of the purchase price into escrow, which will be applied against the purchase price at closing. KCRMD will have until the end of the due diligence period to confirm its obligation to purchase the Property. If KCRMD elects not to complete the purchase prior to the end of the due diligence period, the escrowed amount will be refunded to KCRMD. The escrowed amount will become a non-refundable deposit if KCRMD elects to proceed with the purchase upon expiration of the due diligence period. Included in the Property being sold are all existing easements, rights of way, improvements, development rights and entitlements appurtenant to the Property. There can be no assurances that the purchase of the Property will be consummated on the terms set forth in the Purchase Agreement, if at all.


The foregoing summary of the terms of the Purchase Agreement are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s periodic report for the corresponding period.


Forward-Looking Statements. Any statements contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K that refer to events that may occur in the future or other non-historical matters are forward-looking statements. These statements generally are characterized by the use of terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “predict,” “believe” and “expect” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s expectations as of the date of this report and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of the following factors, among others: (1) conditions to the closing of the transaction may not be satisfied; (2) the transaction may involve unexpected costs, unexpected liabilities or unexpected delays; and (3) the failure of the transaction to close for any other reason. Given these uncertainties, the Company cautions investors and potential investors not to place undue reliance on such statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect future events or circumstances or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
