The Acquisition is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017, subject to customary closing conditions and the approval of a development agreement by the town of Yountville.

The Acquisition Agreement contains terms, conditions, covenants, representations and warranties from each of the respective parties that are customary and typical for a transaction of this nature. As required by the Acquisition Agreement, the Company has deposited a total of $4 million into escrow pending the closing or termination of the Acquisition Agreement. Subject to limitations set forth in the Acquisition Agreement, the Sellers have agreed to indemnify the Company against any losses that the Company incurs to the extent such losses arise out of or resulting from any material breach of the Sellers’ representations or warranties made under the Acquisition Agreement and certain ancillary agreements. The Sellers’ liability for such losses to this indemnity is generally subject to a cap of $4 million (the “Indemnification Limit”), except in the case of certain insured third party claims, revenue and expense allocations and employee liability claims as provided in the Acquisition Agreement that are not subject to the Indemnification Limit.
