MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“Safe & Green Holdings” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures, today announced that the Company has executed an agreement to refinance its Lago Vista site, located on Lake Travis in the greater Austin, Texas area, via Stallion Funding, a private real estate finance company based in the area.
Paul Galvin, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of Safe & Green Holdings Corp. commented, “Since its initial purchase for approximately $3.5 million, the Lago Vista site's value has experienced significant appreciation due to the tremendous growth experienced in the Austin, Texas area. As a result, we were able to refinance and increase our loan on the site at a similar interest rate, providing us with approximately $2.0 million in net proceeds, further strengthening the Company’s cash position. The new note is secured by the Lago Vista property and our mixed-use McLean site in Durant, Oklahoma.”
“We believe this transaction demonstrates the value of our real estate assets, and our ability to secure non-dilutive debt financing. Moreover, we are progressing with the planned sale of the Lago Vista site, which would further strengthen our balance sheet. Overall, we have built a highly scalable business model and remain firmly committed to minimizing dilution by leveraging our growing asset base.”
The loan transaction is expected to close on March 31, 2023. The Company will provide further updates on the site in the near future, as able.
