Lakes Entertainment, Inc. Announces Sale Of Its Ownership In Dania Entertainment Holdings

Lakes Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: LACO) announced that on April 21, 2014, its wholly owned subsidiary Lakes Florida Development, LLC (“Lakes”) entered into a Redemption Agreement with Dania Entertainment Holdings, LLC (“DEH”)). The Redemption Agreement provides that DEH redeemed Lakes’s 20% ownership in DEH in consideration for DEH transferring to Lakes 5% ownership in Dania Entertainment Center, LLC (the entity that owns the Dania Casino & Jai Alai in Dania Beach, Florida)(“DEC”). Concurrently, Lakes entered into a Purchase Agreement with ONDISS Corp. (“ONDISS”) pertaining to the sale of Lakes’s membership interest of DEC (“Purchase Agreement”). The Purchase Agreement provides that ONDISS will pay Lakes a total purchase price of approximately $2,500,000 for the 5% ownership in DEC that was transferred to Lakes by DEH. ONDISS made an initial payment to Lakes of $1,000,000 on April 21, 2014 at which time 40% of Lakes’s ownership in DEC was transferred to ONDISS. The remaining purchase price will be paid in three equal semi-annual installments of $530,323.76, and 20% of Lakes’s original ownership in DEC will be transferred to ONDISS upon each payment.

The newly renovated Dania Casino & Jai Alia features 550 slot machines, a poker room, simulcast, a bistro and lounge bar, and live Jai Alai.

“We are pleased we could reach an agreement with ONDISS to purchase our ownership in Dania,” said Lyle Berman, CEO of Lakes. “We believe receiving $2,500,000 for this asset that we had previously written off is a good result for our shareholders,” added Mr. Berman.
