American Locker Group Reports Sale of Disney Concessions Assets

American Locker Group Incorporated (OTCQB: ALGI), a recognized leader in secure storage solutions, reported today that, on February 14, 2014, the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary American Locker Security Systems, Inc. (“ALSS”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Best Lockers, LLC (“Best”), whereby the Company and ALSS sold approximately 4,100 lockers, kiosks and other assets related to the locker concessions services provided by ALSS at Disneyland Resort®, located in Anaheim, California, to Best for a purchase price of $1,218,075.

The Company also reported that, in connection with the Purchase Agreement, the Company, ALSS and Best entered into a Subcontract Agreement dated February 14, 2014 (the “Subcontract”) whereby Best has agreed to perform all of ALSS’s obligations under an existing concessions services agreement (the “Disney Contract”), between ALSS and Disneyland Resort (“Disney”). In exchange for performing all of ALSS’s obligations under the Disney Contract, Best has the right to receive all of the payments owed to ALSS under the Disney Contract. Best has also agreed that, in the event it enters into an agreement to supply locker concessions or locker systems to any parks or resorts owned or operated by Disney in the United States, Best will purchase all of the lockers required to perform under such agreements from ALSS.

"This is a transaction that benefits all of the parties involved," said Anthony Johnston, President and CEO of American Locker. "In 2010, American Locker began locker concessions services to Disney. We purchased Best Lockers’ electronic locker software system for that solution. Practically, it makes sense that Best Lockers provide the continuing day-to-day support at Disney while American Locker continues to provide any new physical locker requirements. Disney will be well-served by both companies. In late 2013, American Locker introduced our own internally-developed, electronic locker software solution. Our locker focus going forward is to provide affordable electronic locker solutions to our new customers and, for those many existing American Locker customers with key and coin-operated American Locker systems, an affordable electronic retrofit alternative."
