DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 19, 2019 / Pure Cycle Corporation (PCYO) (“Pure Cycle” or the “Company”) announced today that it has closed on the sale of 127 finished lots at Sky Ranch.

Pure Cycle is pleased to announce that it has closed on the sale of an additional 127 finished lots during the fourth quarter of its fiscal year ending August 31, 2019, receiving approximately $6.7 million in proceeds. The proceeds represent the final payment for 99 lots under our Lot Development Agreements and full payment for 28 finished lots under our Finished Lot Agreement. In addition, to date, the Company has received $3.0 million in proceeds from the sale of 100 water and wastewater taps.

“Construction activity is progressing very well, and lot sales to our home builders are exceeding expectations,” commented Mark Harding, President and CEO. “We have completed approximately 250 finished lots and have closed on the sale of 210 of these lots,” continued Mr. Harding. “Our builders have sold more than 60 homes now under construction and continue to pursue acceleration of lot deliveries to help meet demand for our exciting community, and we expect to close on the sale of an additional 150 lots during fiscal year 2020,” continued Mr. Harding.

Water Rights Acquisition

In addition, the Company announced that it has purchased 150 acre feet of ditch water rights, 800 acre feet of renewable groundwater rights, 75 acre feet of deep groundwater rights and 260 acres of land in Weld County for $3.5 million. “The valuable renewable water supplies are strategically located such that we anticipate being able to use them to augment our surface water supplies at Lowry to increase the usability of those surface supplies,” commented Mr. Harding. “We continue to look for strategic acquisitions to grow our valuable portfolio of water rights in areas that complement our existing portfolio,” continued Mr. Harding.
