The Board has also approved the sale and signing of a letter of intent for the Company’s Lago Vista development site located outside of Austin, TX at the asking price. The 60-acre site was purchased less than two years ago.
Paul Galvin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SG Blocks, stated, “We’re excited to announce the decisive action that the Board of Directors has taken to support our common stock and strengthen our balance sheet in the current market environment. With the free cash flow generated from the Clarity testing lab at LAX, the $13 million in cash on our balance sheet at the end of last quarter, and the gains that we should realize on the closing of the Lago Vista sale, SG Blocks will have the cash to fund the share buyback, support our common stock, and launch the five projects in its pipeline scheduled to be kicked off over the next fifteen months. These projects include three additional Made-in-the-USA manufacturing facilities to support the building of our growing pipeline of residential units, which currently numbers over 4,200 units.”
“This announcement also reflects the Board’s confidence in SG Blocks business outlook that we believe will enable us to report growing financial results and reach the positive cash flow that we’ve projected for 2022,” concluded Mr. Galvin.
