RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Highwoods Properties, Inc. (NYSE:HIW) is today announcing investment transactions that have closed to date in early 2021. First, the Company has sold a 100,000 square foot office building in Atlanta that is 100% leased to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for $30.7 million. This property was projected to generate cash and GAAP net operating income of $2.4 million in 2021. Highwoods developed the property as a build-to-suit for the FAA in 2009 for approximately $18 million. Second, the Company has acquired its joint venture partner’s 75% interest in Highwoods DLF Forum, LLC, which owns a five-building office complex called “The Forum” in Raleigh, for a purchase price of $131.3 million. The properties, which encompass 636,000 square feet, are valued at $184.5 million, including $9.5 million of planned near-term building improvements. This equates to a total asset value of $290 per square foot, an approximate 25% discount to estimated replacement cost. The Company’s total incremental investment is expected to be $138.4 million. The properties are a combined 91.0% occupied with a weighted average lease term of 6.0 years, and are expected to generate 2021 cash and GAAP net operating income of $11.5 million and $12.4 million, respectively. Ted Klinck, President and CEO, stated, “These transactions, combined with our fourth quarter 2020 dispositions, demonstrate our strategy of selling non-core properties and reinvesting in high quality office properties in the BBDs (best business districts) of our markets. The Forum is a Class A portfolio with a proven track record of strong performance. With its diverse base of walkable amenities, proximity to housing and excellent access to major thoroughfares, The Forum is in a highly desirable office location in the north Raleigh submarket. We and our joint venture partner first acquired the Forum in 2008. As a result, we know the property well and believe the long-term return outlook is solid, which made this incremental investment a natural fit for us.” About HighwoodsHighwoods Properties, Inc., headquartered in Raleigh, is a publicly-traded (NYSE:HIW) real estate investment trust (“REIT”) and a member of the S&P MidCap 400 Index.

Such statements include, in particular, statements about our plans, strategies and prospects such as the following: the expected financial and operational results and the related assumptions underlying our expected results, including but not limited to potential losses related to customer difficulties, anticipated building usage and expected economic activity due to COVID-19; the continuing ability to borrow under the Company’s revolving credit facility; the anticipated total investment, projected leasing activity, estimated replacement cost and expected net operating income of acquired properties and properties to be developed; and expected future leverage of the Company. You can identify forward-looking statements by our use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “continue” or other similar words. Although we believe that our plans, intentions and expectations reflected in or suggested by such forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that our plans, intentions or expectations will be achieved. When considering such forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Currently, one of the most significant factors that could cause actual outcomes to differ materially from our forward-looking statements is the potential adverse effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, and federal, state, and/or local regulatory guidelines to control it, on our financial condition, operating results and cash flows, our customers, the real estate market in which we operate, the global economy and the financial markets. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts us and our customers will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, and potential changes in customer behavior, among others. Additional factors, many of which may be influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements include: the financial condition of our customers could deteriorate or further worsen; our assumptions regarding potential losses related to customer financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic could prove incorrect; counterparties under our debt instruments, particularly our revolving credit facility, may attempt to avoid their obligations thereunder, which, if successful, would reduce our available liquidity; we may not be able to lease or re-lease second generation space, defined as previously occupied space that becomes available for lease, quickly or on as favorable terms as old leases; we may not be able to lease newly constructed buildings as quickly or on as favorable terms as originally anticipated; we may not be able to complete development, acquisition, reinvestment, disposition or joint venture projects as quickly or on as favorable terms as anticipated; development activity in our existing markets could result in an excessive supply relative to customer demand; our markets may suffer declines in economic and/or office employment growth; unanticipated increases in interest rates could increase our debt service costs; unanticipated increases in operating expenses could negatively impact our operating results; we may not be able to meet our liquidity requirements or obtain capital on favorable terms to fund our working capital needs and growth initiatives or repay or refinance outstanding debt upon maturity; and the Company could lose key executive officers. This list of risks and uncertainties, however, is not intended to be exhaustive. You should also review the other cautionary statements we make in “Business – Risk Factors” set forth in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K and “Risk Factors” in our second quarter 2020 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Bit Digital Inc. (BTBT) Investors
TORONTO, Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YAMANA GOLD INC. (TSX:YRI; NYSE:AUY; LSE:AUY) (“Yamana” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the successful completion of Yamana’s acquisition of the Wasamac property and the Camflo property and mill from Monarch Gold Corporation (“Monarch”) through its acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Monarch (the “Monarch Shares”) not owned by Yamana under the previously-announced plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”). In connection with the Arrangement, Monarch completed a spin-out to its shareholders, through newly formed Monarch Mining Corporation (“Monarch Mining”), of its other mineral properties and certain other assets and liabilities. The addition of the Wasamac project to Yamana’s portfolio further solidifies the Company’s long-term growth profile with a top-tier gold project in Quebec’s Abitibi region, a prolific mining district where Yamana has deep operational and technical expertise and experience. Additional details about Wasamac and Yamana’s initial plans for the asset include: Wasamac is located 15 kilometres west of Rouyn-Noranda in the Abitibi region of Quebec adjacent to the Trans-Canada highway and Ontario Northland rail line, and 100 kilometres from the Company’s 50%-owned Canadian Malartic mine.The project consists of a single, continuous shear zone with a consistent grade distribution and wide mining widths, making it amenable to simple, productive, and cost efficient underground bulk mining methods.The geological characteristics of the Wasamac ore body suggest it holds the potential to be an underground mine with the potential to achieve the same scale, grade, production, and costs as Yamana’s successful Jacobina mine in Brazil, and it possesses many parallels to the underground project at Canadian Malartic.The project has existing proven and probable mineral reserves of 1.8 million ounces of gold at 2.56 grams per tonne.(1) (See mineral reserve and mineral resource statement at the end of this press release.) Mineral resources and proven and probable mineral reserves are supported by a Feasibility Study(1) previously completed by Monarch in 2018 (the “Wasamac Feasibility Study”), and Yamana completed independent geological modelling, mineral resources and mineral reserves validations, among other extensive work, as part of its due diligence reviews to ensure greater levels of accuracy. There remains excellent potential for significant future exploration success and mineral resource conversion, with the deposit remaining open at depth and along strike.The currently defined deposit is situated at shallow depths in comparison to other Abitibi mines. Current known mineralization reaches a depth of approximately 800 metres, which offers the opportunity for ramp access at low relative up-front development costs over a relatively short development time frame.Yamana plans to build on the ongoing permitting and social licensing effort carried out by Monarch, applying the Company’s strong ESG framework and best practices, and leveraging the Company’s extensive experience in permitting and proven track record of building strong, respectful, and mutually beneficial relationships with the communities and governments wherever it operates.The Company will target increasing the mineral inventory and perform optimizations to further enhance the project’s value, advance engineering, and de-risk execution, leveraging Yamana’s technical expertise and adhering to the Company’s disciplined capital approach.Building off the work completed to date, Yamana plans to commence an exploration and infill drilling campaign and other studies to refine and expand upon the potential of Wasamac and its development alternatives.The Company plans to open a regional office in the coming months to support community engagement. Completion of the Arrangement Under the terms of the Arrangement, each former holder of Monarch Shares received, in exchange for each Monarch Share held immediately prior to the effective time of the Arrangement: (i) 0.0376 of a Yamana Share; (ii) C$0.192 in cash from Yamana; and (iii) 0.2 of a share of Monarch Mining. In aggregate, Yamana issued 11,608,195 Yamana Shares (the “Consideration Shares”) and approximately C$59.3 million in cash under the Arrangement to former Monarch shareholders as consideration for their Monarch Shares. Upon closing of the Arrangement, existing Yamana shareholders and former Monarch shareholders own approximately 98.8% and 1.2% of the issued and outstanding Yamana Shares, respectively. Monarch shareholders also received shares of Monarch Mining under the Arrangement. Yamana now owns 4,450,000 common shares of Monarch Mining, or approximately 6.7% of the outstanding common shares of Monarch Mining, and is entitled to acquire an additional 2,225,000 common shares of Monarch Mining upon the exercise of previously held Monarch warrants, representing a partially-diluted share ownership in Monarch Mining of approximately 9.8%. Yamana looks forward to participating in the value created from Monarch’s remaining pipeline of development and exploration projects. As Monarch is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, the Monarch Shares are anticipated to be de-listed from the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) at the beginning of next week. Yamana will also apply to the applicable securities regulators to have Monarch cease to be a reporting issuer and terminate the entity’s public reporting obligations. This release is being made jointly with Monarch, as Monarch currently remains a reporting issuer. The Company also plans to apply to the Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”) and London Stock Exchange plc (the “LSE”) respectively for the Consideration Shares issued under the Arrangement to be admitted to the standard listing segment of the Official List of the FCA and to trading on the main market for listed securities of the LSE (together, “Admission”). It is expected that Admission will become effective at 8:00 a.m. on 27 January 2021. An additional 388,759 Yamana Shares have been reserved for issuance to former Monarch warrantholders on exercise of their warrants. Following the issuance of the Consideration Shares, the Company’s issued share capital now consists of 964,260,851 common shares and the total number of voting rights in the Company is 964,260,851. This figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the Company under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority. Further details regarding the Arrangement are set out in the management information circular of Monarch dated November 30, 2020, which is available on under Monarch’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. A copy of the early warning report of Yamana in connection with the acquisition of the Monarch Shares is available on SEDAR under Monarch’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and can be obtained by contacting Yamana at the contact information below. Information for Former Monarch Shareholders Pursuant to the Arrangement, former Monarch shareholders are entitled to receive the above-noted cash and Share Consideration for each Monarch Share held prior to closing of the Arrangement. In order to receive such consideration in exchange for Monarch Shares, registered shareholders of Monarch must complete, sign, date and return the letter of transmittal that was mailed to each Monarch shareholder prior to closing. The letter of transmittal is also available under Monarch’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. For those shareholders of Monarch whose Monarch Shares are registered in the name of a broker, investment dealer, bank, trust company, trust or other intermediary or nominee, they should contact such nominee for assistance in depositing their Monarch Shares and should follow the instructions of such intermediary or nominee. For further details regarding the submission of the letters of transmittal, please refer to the Monarch management information circular dated November 30, 2020 available under Monarch’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, or questions may be directed to the depositary, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, at 1-800-564-6253 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
