REDHAWK LAND ANNOUNCES LEASE RENEWALS
Lafayette, Louisiana – RedHawk Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: IDNG) (“RedHawk” or the “Company”) announced today that its wholly-owned real estate subsidiary, RedHawk Land & Hospitality LLC (“RedHawk Land), has entered into new agreements for the lease of its two commercial properties located in Lafayette, Louisiana.
The Company said it has entered into a new triple-net lease agreement with the Louisiana 3rd Circuit Court of Appeal to renew and extend the current lease term to December 31, 2022. The new lease agreement was effective August 1, 2017 and included certain rate increases.
RedHawk also announced today that it has entered into an agreement for the lease and probable sale of its former corporate offices. Under the terms of the new agreement, the tenant will lease the property through June 30, 2018 and, at the end of the lease, the tenant will have the option to purchase the property for $300,000.
On December 8, 2016, RedHawk announced its intent to exit its real estate investments. The Company said today that it has not changed its intended plan to exit its real estate investments as it believes it has maximized its return on these investments. Future sales of these properties will be subject to these new agreements. RedHawk further said today the proceeds from the sale of its real estate investments will be used for working capital purposes including the organic and strategic expansion of its more profitable generic pharmaceutical and medical device business units.
