DOVER MOTORSPORTS INC FILES (8-K) Disclosing Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Exhibits

June 2, 2014

Item 1.01 Entry Into Material Definitive Agreements.

On May 28, 2014, Dover Motorsports, Inc. and our wholly-owned subsidiary, Nashville Speedway, USA, Inc., entered into a definitive agreement to sell to NeXovation, Inc. our Nashville Superspeedway facility along with some related equipment and assets. The agreement provides for a $1.5 million deposit to be held in escrow and an aggregate purchase price of $27 million in cash plus the assumption by NeXovation of our obligations under certain Variable Rate Tax Exempt Infrastructure Revenue Bonds issued by the Sports Authority of the County of Wilson, Tennessee. The Bonds, which have a remaining principal balance of $18,800,000, are secured by a letter of credit provided by us which will be replaced by a letter of credit provided by NeXovation. Debt service on the Bonds is payable from property and sales taxes generated by the facility.

Our balance sheet includes a $1,765,000 contingent obligation for the estimated portion of the debt service that may not be covered by property and sales taxes at the Nashville facility if it were to remain closed. Upon closing of the transaction, we will reverse the contingent obligation which will result in a $1,765,000 increase in our pre-tax earnings.

We estimate that net proceeds from the sale will be approximately $21-$22 million after income taxes and settlement adjustments.

Closing is expected to take place in the third quarter and is subject to customary closing conditions.
