Melrose, along with Mt. Melrose’s rights and ongoing obligations, as lessor/landlord, under all leases covering such real properties. to the Purchase Agreement, the Company, through the Sitestar Designee, will assume, as of each closing, any outstanding indebtedness secured by the real properties then being conveyed at such closing.As of November 30, 2017, the real properties, all together, secured indebtedness having an aggregate principal balance of approximately $4,883,736.
The aggregate purchase price to be paid to Mt. Melrose is approximately $8,448,700, subject to adjustments to reflect (i) any additional real properties acquired by Mt. Melrose after the date of the Purchase Agreement and to be purchased by the Company, (ii) proration of such items as are customarily prorated at the time of each closing and (iii) any mutually agreed-upon reductions to the purchase price of one or more of the real properties negotiated between the parties following the Company’s due diligence investigation thereof or following any casualty loss, eminent domain or condemnation affecting such property. $500,000 of the purchase price will be payable to Mt. Melrose in cash, and the balance of the purchase price will be payable by (i) the Company’s assumption, through the Sitestar Designee, of the outstanding indebtedness secured by the real properties then being conveyed, as described above, and (ii) the Company’s issuance to Mt. Melrose of restricted shares of the Company’s common stock (that will be exempt from registration to the provisions of Section 4(2) and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933), subject to Mt. Melrose’s right to receive cash in lieu thereof.Portions of the purchase price will be paid at each closing, in such amounts as the parties may mutually agree to attribute and allocate to the specific assets being conveyed at such closing.
Under the Purchase Agreement, the parties have agreed to finalize as soon as reasonably practicable a mutually acceptable schedule of closings and the specific assets to be conveyed at each such closing; provided, however, no closing as to any of the assets will be scheduled to occur later than June 10, 2019.
Each closing is subject to customary conditions precedent, including, without limitation, the parties’ respective customary representations and warranties made under the Purchase Agreement being true and correct as of the time of such closing, the parties having obtained any regulatory approvals necessary for consummation of the closing, and each party having delivered, respectively, customary instruments of transfer and assignment and assumption and other items specified in the Purchase Agreement.
The Purchase Agreement provides, further, as a condition precedent to Mt. Melrose’s obligation to any of the closings thereunder, that, prior to the first closing, the Company or Sitestar Designee and Mr. Moore shall have entered into a definitive employment agreement to which Mr. Moore will be employed as the President of the Sitestar Designee.
The transactions contemplated under the Purchase Agreement are referred to herein as the “Mt. Melrose Transaction.”
The Mt. Melrose Transaction was considered and approved on December 1, 2017 by each of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company and the Board of Directors of the Company. Mr. Moore did not participate in discussions of the Audit Committee or the Board about whether to approve the Mt. Melrose Transaction, and abstained from voting on the Mt. Melrose Transaction at both meetings. In each case, it was considered that Mr. Moore is an interested Director of the Company and that the Mt. Melrose Transaction is a related-party transaction. In each case it also was determined, among other things, that, notwithstanding that Mr. Moore is an interested Director of the Company, the Mt. Melrose Transaction is beneficial and fair to the Company and is on terms not less favorable to the Company than those that prevail in arms-length transactions with third parties.

Melrose Transaction, to the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which will be attached as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.
