Pure Cycle Corporation Announces
Agreements for Sale of Lots at Sky Ranch
Denver, Colorado – June 29, 2017 – Pure Cycle Corporation (NASDAQ Capital Market: PCYO) (“Pure Cycle” or the “Company”) announced today that it has entered into agreements with three national home builders for the sale of lots at Sky Ranch.
The Company has entered into agreements with Richmond American Homes, KB Home and Taylor Morrison for the sale of all 506 single family lots in its first phase of Sky Ranch. The agreements provide for a 60-day due diligence investigation, after which the Company will finalize designs for the community, including the Final Platted lots, roadways, open space, drainage, water and wastewater systems. Lot prices range from $67,500 to $75,000 depending on lot size and the specific terms and conditions of the agreements with each builder.
In addition to lot sales, the Company will collect water and wastewater tap fees for each lot, which will be paid at the time the builders obtain building permits. Water tap fees will vary depending on the projected water demand of each individual lot based on an average single family equivalent using 0.4 acre feet of water per year with a corresponding tap fee of $26,650. Wastewater tap fees are projected to be $4,600 per lot.
“We are excited to be working with this distinguished group of national home builders,” commented Mark Harding, President and CEO. “The Company is diligently working to complete the planning and engineering for our initial phase of development, and we hope to be under construction later this year, with initial homes being constructed early next year. We are completing the Final Plat and construction drawings for all 506 lots, and once approved, we plan to solicit bids for construction of an initial 200 lots. In addition to our activities at Sky Ranch, we are excited about the return of oil and gas drilling activity to our area with one rig currently drilling the third well of the season and a second rig scheduled to arrive later this summer. Our Board, management, and dedicated employees could not be more pleased with the start of development at Sky Ranch and look forward to this exciting time for our Company.”
