Pure Cycle Corporation Announces Sky Ranch Receives $2.5 Million at First Closing

DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 10, 2018 / Pure Cycle Corporation (PCYO) (''Pure Cycle'' or the ''Company'') announced today that it has closed on the delivery of 150 platted lots to two of its home builders.

Sky Ranch is a new Master Planned Community along the I-70 corridor which will include approximately 5,000 single family detached homes, paired duplex homes, multifamily apartments, and over 150 acres of commercial, retail and industrial development. The Company has two development structures with its home builders: one where the Company delivers platted lots to two of its home builders and the Company receives progress payments as it develops the lots; and another where the Company delivers a finished lot and closes at the time of delivery. The Company closed on the delivery of 150 platted lots to two of its home builders for $2,500,000, and the builders escrowed an additional $7,775,000 to be distributed upon two future milestone deliveries. Construction milestones are the completion of ''wet utilities,'' including water, sewer, and storm water facilities for the lots (currently underway) after which the Company will receive 50% of the escrowed funds, and the remaining funds will be distributed upon completion of finished lots, which includes roads, curbs and gutters to make lots ready for home construction.

''Sky Ranch is progressing very well, and we are pleased to reach this first closing milestone. We have enjoyed working with our portfolio of home builders and look forward to delivering model home lots later this year so they may begin constructing homes,'' commented Mark Harding, President and CEO of Pure Cycle. ''Denver's housing market continues to perform well and we look forward to meeting the undersupply of entry-level affordable housing product,'' continued Mr. Harding.
