Genesis Announces Closing of the Vendor Take-Back Mortgage Purchase from Limited Partnership Land Pool (2007)

CALGARY , Oct. 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Genesis Land Development Corp. ("Genesis") is pleased to announce the completion of purchase of the $20.5 million vendor take-back mortgage ("VTB") from Limited Partnership Land Pool (2007) ("LPLP" or the "Partnership") for $22.02 million . The VTB bears interest at a rate of 6.5% per annum, payable in arrears in December of each year, with the principal repayable in December 2020 .

The net cash proceeds to the Partnership of the sale (after repayment of $11.66 million owing by the Partnership under the loan by Genesis) were $10.36 million or $0.2364 per limited partnership unit. Genesis funded the VTB purchase price from its corporate resources and credit facilities and intends to re-finance this amount with a third-party lender in the fourth quarter of 2019.

A pro rata distribution of the net cash proceeds was paid by the Partnership to 2474514 Ontario Inc., which holds 22.7% of all of the issued and outstanding limited partnership units of the Partnership on behalf of Caja Paraguaya de Jubilaciones y Pensiones del Personal de Itaipu Binacional ("Cajubi"). Genesis reimbursed a portion of Cajubi's legal fees and other costs associated with negotiating and evaluating the proposed sale transaction in the amount of $100,000 .

The remaining funds will be available for distribution to all other limited partners following receipt of a letter of transmittal containing a release and undertaking and the Partnership obtaining appropriate Court approvals. Funds will be held under a court approved process for those limited partners who do not provide a letter of transmittal pending a resolution of a proposed class action involving the Partnership.
