The closing of the Transaction (the “Closing”) is expected to occur on or about August 30, 2018. The Closing is subject to certain closing conditions, including, among others, (a) the absence of certain legal impediments to the consummation of the Transaction; (b) the parties’ performance, in all material respects, of their respective obligations under the Purchase and Sale Agreement; (c) the material accuracy of the parties’ representations and warranties as of the Closing; and (d) the simultaneous closing of a separate transaction between Buyer and a third-party with respect to certain other assets located in the State of Ohio.

The Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants. From and after the Closing, Seller and Buyer have agreed to indemnify each other against certain losses resulting from any breach of their representations, warranties or covenants contained in the Purchase and Sale Agreement, subject to certain customary limitations and survival periods.
