Peak Resorts Inc., parent company of Mount Snow, announced that it has reached an agreement to sell $20 million of Series A convertible preferred stock and warrants to purchase common stock to CAP 1 LLC, a family client of Summer Road LLC.
In conjunction with this private offering, Summer Road will also have the right to nominate a person for election to Peak’s board of directors. Peak Resorts expects to use the proceeds from this offering for working capital and general corporate purposes and for the execution of its strategy for future growth, including expansion through acquisition.
As previously reported, Peak Resorts’ current cash position is restrained due to delays in the release of funds raised pursuant to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services EB-5 Program, and the negative effects that unseasonably warm weather had on revenues during the 2015-2016 ski season. The company believes that this investment will provide it with increased flexibility to meet short- and long-term liquidity and maintain flexibility for future funding of ongoing operations, growth, and strategic investments.
Key transaction details include: the preferred stock is convertible upon a change of control, or after nine months, into common shares equal to the number of shares to be converted times the liquidation value divided by $6.29; preferred stock has an initial nine-month, dividend-free period with a subsequent cumulative dividend of 8% per annum on the liquidation value of $1,000 per share; and the preferred stock is redeemable by the company after three years at 125% of the liquidation value, plus accrued and unpaid dividends if the common stock trades at more than 130% of the conversion price for a 30-day period.
Peak Resorts has an option to issue to Summer Road an additional $20 million in shares. Summer Road also has certain additional rights, including pre-emptive rights, rights of first offer, director nomination rights and approval rights over certain changes in the business and certain acquisitions.
