2.04       Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.


On February 28, 2020, Gadsden Properties, Inc. (OTC/TASE: GADS and the “Company”) was notified that a Notice of Default and Election to Sell Under Deed of Trust (the “Notice”) had been filed in Alameida County, California, against the Company’s subsidiary, Fremont Hills Development Corporation (“FHDC”), by Parkview Financial Fund 2015, LP (“Parkview”). FHDC, which was acquired by the Company on April 5, 2019, is the owner of the Company’s Mission Hills Square project.


FHDC is a party to a Construction Loan Agreement dated January 31, 2018 with Parkview and Trez Capital (2016) Corporation, as amended (the “Loan Agreement”), pursuant to which FHDC may borrow up to $65,000,000 for construction of Mission Hills Square. Fremont Hills Development, Inc., the seller of the project (the “Seller”) is responsible for the completion of the Mission Hills Square project and the Seller and its principals continue to have personal and other guarantees under the Loan Agreement. FHDC and the Seller failed to make certain required payments under the Loan Agreement. The Notice states that FHDC is in default of the Loan Agreement and as a result, the total amount of the outstanding loan, $41,875,152.10 as of February 4, 2020, has become due and payable unless the default is otherwise cured.


Fremont Hills and the Company have ninety days from the date of recordation of that Notice on February 19, 2020 in which to cure this default. The Company and its subsidiary are currently in the process of obtaining substitute financing to complete the development of this property.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this current report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
