SDA Holdings, LLC, a company owned by Fred W. Alexander, who is a member of the Board of Directors of ARC Group, and the owners of Tilted Kilt have fully executed all of the agreements for the sale of Tilted Kilt to SDA Holdings. SDA Holdings is using funds loaned to it by Seenu G. Kasturi, ARC Group’s Chairman and Chief Financial Officer, to satisfy its payment obligations under the agreements for the specific purpose of holding the franchise until such time as ARC Group has obtained suitable financing to acquire the franchise. ARC Group intends to enter into an agreement with SDA Holdings within the next couple of weeks to acquire Tilted Kilt from SDA Holdings.
Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery has 47 locations in operation across the United States and Canada and boasts a wide array of sports and traditional pub food and drinks all under one roof. Tilted Kilt is uniquely different than other sports bars because of its fun pub experience. The Pubs feature dozens of large, HDTVs and big screens to deliver a premium sports viewing experience. Every pub has 30+ draught and bottled beers along with excellent tasting, high quality menu items served to you by the World Famous Kilt Girls®. The brand’s slogan A Cold Beer Never Looked So Good® personifies the fun, food, spirits and sports that the Tilted Kilt is well-known for bringing to pub guests in both the United States and Canada.
“I am very excited that we have a plan in place to add Tilted Kilt to ARC Group’s book of premium brands,” stated Seenu G. Kasturi. “I am ARC Group’s biggest fan and have always supported the company, both financially and otherwise, whenever helpful or needed. By structuring the transaction in this manner, SDA Holdings will be able to acquire Tilted Kilt now and hold it until ARC Group has the funds available to finance the acquisition of the franchise from SDA Holdings. We are in the process of finalizing a financing plan for ARC Group that will enable it to obtain the funds necessary to complete the acquisition of Tilted Kilt. We expect ARC Group to complete the acquisition of Tilted Kilt within the next few months.”
