Section 1 – Registrant's Business and Operations
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 1, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), Solitron Devices, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Commercial Contract (the “Agreement”) with 901 Sansbury, LLC (the “Seller”). Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company has agreed to buy, and the Seller has agreed to sell (the “Transaction”), a facility and real estate property located in West Palm Beach, Florida (the “Property”) for a purchase price of Four Million Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($4,200,000.00) (the “Purchase Price”). The Company intends to relocate its current manufacturing operations and corporate headquarters to the Property. The Company expects the Transaction to close on April 15, 2021, unless extended (the “Closing”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, the Company has thirty (30) days from the Effective Date to conduct its due diligence to determine if the property is suitable, at the Company's sole and absolute discretion. The Company anticipates obtaining third-party mortgage financing in the amount of Two Million Nine Hundred and Forty Thousand Dollars ($2,940,000) within forty-five (45) days of the Effective Date. If the Company is unable to obtain third-party mortgage financing, the Agreement provides that the Company is to pay the remaining Purchase Price at closing in cash and in that case extends the closing to April 30, 2021.
The Purchase Price includes a deposit to be made by the Company within three (3) days after the Effective Date of Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000.00) to be held in escrow until Closing which amount shall be refundable to the Company upon certain conditions set forth in the Agreement, including if the Transaction is not consummated as a result of the Seller's default or if the Company elects to terminate the Agreement during the due diligence period.
The Closing is subject to certain customary conditions and provisions.
The Company’s current manufacturing operations and corporate headquarters are located in one leased facility in West Palm Beach, Florida. The lease is for a term ending on December 31, 2021 and includes an option to renew the lease for an additional five years beginning on January 1, 2022 under current terms. Assuming the Company closes the above Transaction within the anticipated timeline, it expects to begin making the necessary improvements to the property in order to completely relocate its manufacturing operations and corporate headquarters later in the calendar year.
The foregoing summary of the Agreement and the Transaction contemplated thereby do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Agreement, a copy of which is respectively filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
