Granite City Food & Brewery Acquires Assets Of Three Additional Cadillac Ranch Restaurants For $3.3 Million

Granite City Food & Brewery Ltd. (Nasdaq: GCFB) announced today that it has completed the purchase of the assets of three additional Cadillac Ranch All American Bar & Grill restaurants, in Oxon Hill, Maryland; Annapolis, Maryland; and Indianapolis, Indiana, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $3.3 million. The Company also acquired certain Cadillac Ranch intellectual property from Restaurant Entertainment Group, LLC for approximately $1.5 million.

Fifth Third Bank provided Granite City an additional $5.0 million delayed draw term loan, which Granite City drew in full to fund such asset acquisitions. Fifth Third Bank also further increased Granite City’s line of credit from $7.0 million to $12.0 million, bringing the total credit facility to $22.0 million. The amount available under the line of credit will decrease by $2.0 million upon the first to occur of Granite City’s planned sale-leaseback of its real property in Troy, Michigan, or April 30, 2012.

The Company previously announced the purchase of Cadillac Ranch restaurant assets in Bloomington, Minnesota and Miami, Florida. The total paid for the Cadillac Ranch assets acquired to date is now $7.7 million.

“Cadillac Ranch is a differentiated concept that uniquely melds entertainment and casual dining to create a special customer experience,” said Rob Doran, CEO. “The completion of the five restaurant asset acquisitions to date represents a great step for Granite City and allows us the benefit of using the Granite City engine as a platform to grow into a broader and more dynamic restaurant company.”

“These purchases allow us to begin scratching the surface of a variety of synergies between the two concepts including menu, purchasing, and G&A,” said Dean Oakey, CCO.

Pursuant to a further amendment to the master asset purchase agreement, the parties have agreed to use best efforts to enter into separate asset purchase agreements for the Cadillac Ranch restaurant assets in Indianapolis, Indiana, representing a second restaurant in Indianapolis that is presently under construction; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Hallandale Beach, Florida, representing assets that had been excluded pursuant to an earlier amendment to the master asset purchase agreement. The aggregate purchase price for these remaining assets is expected to be $1.5 million, bringing the total amount paid or expected to be paid for the Cadillac Ranch assets to $9.2 million.
