CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — With reference to its prior news release dated December 17, 2019, Tornado Global Hydrovacs Ltd. (“Tornado” or the “Company”) (TGH: TSX-V) is pleased to announce that it has closed the purchase of an approximately 63,500 square foot facility built on approximately 17 acres of land located in Red Deer, Alberta (the “New Facility”) for $6.5 million (the “Purchase Price”) from an arm’s length third party vendor (the “Vendor”).
The Company paid an aggregate of $500,000 toward the Purchase Price at closing and the Vendor provided a non-interest bearing vendor take-back mortgage secured against the New Facility for the balance of the Purchase Price with a $500,000 principal reduction due on February 1, 2021 and the balance of the principal due on July 1, 2021. The acquisition of the New Facility was necessary as the Company’s lease for its current production facility located in Stettler, Alberta (the “Existing Facility”) will expire on June 30, 2021 and the Company’s current production demands have already out-grown the capacity of the Existing Facility and demand for even more production capacity is expected to be needed going forward. The Company expects to move a significant portion of its production activities to this New Facility over the next 6 months.About Tornado Global Hydrovacs Ltd.The Company designs and manufactures hydrovac trucks in Canada and sells hydrovac trucks for excavation service providers to the municipal and oil and gas markets in Canada and the USA.
