Note 12 – Subsequent Event

As part of implementing our growth strategy, on November 27, 2018, we closed on the $6 million purchase of a new facility with nearly 36,000 square feet adjacent to our current campus in Farmingdale, NY to be used for manufacturing and distributing our low cost, diagnostic platform products and related services. This facility extends Enzo’s New York campus to nearly 101,000 square feet, complementing our existing sites in Michigan, Switzerland, France and Belgium.

In connection with the purchase, we entered into a fee mortgage security agreement with Citibank, N.A., the mortgagee in the amount of $4.5 million. The mortgage is for a term of 10 years, bears a fixed interest rate of 5.09% per annum, and requires monthly principal and interest payments of $30,106. The mortgage includes financial covenants requiring adherence to certain financial ratios. We have Town of Babylon Industrial Development Agency (IDA) commitments that will provide significant multi-year tax abatements and additional incentives with respect to our entire Farmingdale campus

We assumed an operating lease for the facility from the seller. The current tenant may occupy the facility until December 2019, unless it is given or gives notice to vacate prior to that date.
