Pure Cycle Corporation Announces Release of Due Diligence on Agreements for Sale of Lots at Sky Ranch

DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / November 15, 2017 / Pure Cycle Corporation (PCYO) ("Pure Cycle" or the "Company") announced today that each of the home builders with whom the Company has agreements to sell the first phase of its Sky Ranch project has agreed to terminate its due diligence period.

The Company entered into agreements with Richmond American Homes, KB Home, and Taylor Morrison for the sale of all 506 single family lots in the Company's first phase of Sky Ranch. The agreements provided for a due diligence investigation period during which each home builder had the right to terminate its agreement and receive a refund of its earnest money deposit. Each builder has now completed its due diligence period and is now bound by its agreement to proceed with the purchase of finished lots, subject to Pure Cycle's performance of its obligations under the respective agreements and the specific terms and provisions of each of the respective agreements. The Company has been finalizing designs for the community, including the final platted lots, roadways, open space, drainage, water and wastewater systems, and has submitted it construction drawings for the first approximately 200 lots to local authorities for comment and review.

"We are excited to be working with this distinguished group of national home builders, who are as committed to the success of Sky Ranch as we are," commented Mark Harding, President and CEO. "We have been diligently working to complete the engineering and construction documents for our initial phase and have been working with our local governmental agencies to complete their review. Once approved, we will solicit bids for construction of an initial 200 lots," continued Mr. Harding. "In addition to our activities at Sky Ranch, we welcome continued oil and gas drilling activity in our area. We have multiple operators drilling wells this year, which has translated into increased water demand from our industrial customers this calendar year. Our board, management, and dedicated employees are anxious to begin development at Sky Ranch and look forward to this exciting time for our Company," commented Mr. Harding.
