TORONTO ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 20, 2019 / Seven Aces Limited (the “Company”) (TSXV:ACES) is pleased to announce that its 70% owned subsidiary, Lucky Bucks, LLC (“Lucky Bucks”), has entered into an agreement with Shivbhakti, Inc. (“Game Vendor”) on December 20, 2019 (the “Agreement”). Under the Agreement, Lucky Bucks has agreed to acquire 160 gaming contracts and associated skill-based digital gaming terminals from Game Vendor, a digital skill-based gaming terminal operator based in the U.S. State of Georgia, in exchange for cash consideration of US$32.5 million payable on closing, with potential additional payments post-closing as more particularly described below (the “Acquisition”). The gaming contracts to be acquired under the Agreement are fully-licensed and governed by the Georgia Lottery Corporation and offer players a variety of skill-based coin-operated amusement machines.
The purchase price for the Acquisition is expected to be US$32.5 million on closing, with potential additional post-closing payments which could result in the aggregate consideration payable increasing to a range of US$36 million to US$38 million (as currently best estimated by Lucky Bucks) in the event of the satisfaction of certain conditions related to post-closing revenue generation. Any such post-closing payments, if made, would be payable by Lucky Bucks on or before the date that is 12 months from the date of the closing of the Acquisition. The Corporation expects to finance the purchase price of the Acquisition with its previously-announced available financing. The Agreement contains representations, warranties and termination provisions that are customary for a transaction of this nature.
The Acquisition is an arm’s length transaction and completion of the Acquisition is subject to a number of conditions precedent, including but not limited to receipt of approval from the TSX Venture Exchange and the Georgia Lottery Corporation. Closing of the Acquisition is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2020.
