On October 30, 2017, the Company sold its corporate office building in Fort Myers, Florida for $5,300,000 and realized a gain of approximately $1,751,000. The sales agreement provides that the Company lease back a portion of the office space for five years.
The Company recorded an impairment loss in operating expenses of approximately $4,131,000 during fiscal year 2017 on these assets classified as assets held for sale at September 30, 2017.
The Company has used a portion of the proceeds to pay down debt (see Note 5. "Long-Term Debt and Lines of Credit") and repurchase common shares in the open market, and plans to use the remaining cash proceeds from the sale of these assets towards future working capital requirements and other corporate purposes.
In June 2018, the Company's Board of Directors approved listing its Island Pond and Rawle properties, as well as property located on the East Ranch, for sale. As a result, the Company reclassified the net book value of the properties of approximately $9,660,000 to assets held for sale as of June 30, 2018. The estimated fair value of the Island Pond property was less than the net book value, and, as such, the Company recorded an impairment in operating expenses of approximately $1,855,000 as a result of the reclassification. The estimated fair value of the Island Pond property exceeded the net book value, and no impairment was recognized as a result of the reclassification.
On June 29, 2018, the Company executed a contract to sell 1,294 acres for a parcel of property located at the East Ranch for approximately $3,200,000.
The entire disclosure related to a disposal group. Includes, but is not limited to, a discontinued operation, disposal classified as held-for-sale or disposed of by means other than sale or disposal of an individually significant component.
