CAPITAL LEASE OBLIGATION
Rising Star Casino Resort Capital Lease. Our Indiana subsidiary, Gaming Entertainment (Indiana) LLC, leases a 104-room hotel at Rising Star Casino Resort pursuant to a capital lease agreement with Rising Sun/Ohio County First, Inc., an Indiana non-profit corporation (the “Landlord”).
The lease expires on October 1, 2027, and rent payments are as follows: (i) $48,537 per month from April 2016 through March 2017, (ii) $56,537 per month from April 2017 through March 2018; (iii) $57,537 per month from April 2018 through March 2019; and (iv) $63,537 per month from April 2019 through March 2020. Beginning April 1, 2020 through the end of the lease, the scheduled monthly payment will be $54,326. The Company was also required to make certain improvements to the Rising Star Casino Resort of at least $1 million by March 31, 2017, which the Company satisfied. The lease payments include an annual interest rate of 3.5% through September 30, 2017 and 4.5% thereafter.
On September 17, 2017, we entered into a second amendment to the lease agreement to facilitate construction of the RV park that adjoins the leased hotel.
At any time during the lease term, we have the exclusive option to purchase the hotel at a price based upon the project’s actual original cost of $7.7 million, reduced by the cumulative principal capital lease payments made by the Company during the lease term. At December 31, 2018, such net amount was $4.8 million. Upon expiration of the lease term, if we have not yet exercised our option to purchase the hotel, either (i) the Landlord has the right to sell the hotel to us, or (ii) we have the option to purchase the hotel. In either case, the purchase price is $1 plus closing costs. The lease agreement is not guaranteed by the parent company or any subsidiary, other than Gaming Entertainment (Indiana) LLC, and has customary provisions in the event of a default.
Future minimum lease payments and the present value of such payments based on this amendment related to the capital lease, as of December 31, 2018, are as follows:
The entire disclosure for capital leasing arrangements including, but not limited to, the following: a) the basis on which contingent rental payments are determined; (b) the existence and terms of renewal or purchase options and escalation clauses; (c) restrictions imposed by lease agreements, such as those concerning dividends, additional debt, and further leasing.
