Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 11, 2017) - Gunpowder Capital Corp. (CSE: GPC) (CSE: GPC.PR.A) (OTCQB: GNPWF) (FSE: YS6N) ("Gunpowder" or the "Corporation") announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary GP Realty Inc., has purchased, 633 Marentette Ave, a 16 unit lodging house located in Windsor, Ontario.

Total purchase price of the property was Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ("$300,000.00") CDN. The purchase price was financed through a Two Hundred and Ten Thousand Dollars ("$210,000.00") CDN first mortgage financing on the property with a credit union. The mortgage has a term of 5 years and bears interest at a fixed rate of 4.55%. The remainder was financed through GPC's cash resources.

This property is estimated to generate a 30% cash on cash return based on 75% occupancy.

Gunpowder is also pleased to announce that it has hired its own full time property manager and now internalized the property management function. We believe that by internalizing the property management function we will be able to reduce our operating costs significantly and achieve a better return on our investment.
