TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2021 /CNW/ - SPOT COFFEE (CANADA) LTD. (TSXV: SPP) ("SPoT Coffee" or the "Company") reports that on January 29, 2015, SPoT Coffee Park Place Inc. ("SPoT Park Place"), a Canadian company wholly owned by SPoT Coffee, commenced legal action against Concord Adex Investments Limited ("Concord Adex"), and filed a claim against Concord Adex seeking damages for negligent misrepresentations in a case relating to a lease it entered into with Concord Adex on October 29, 2010. The lease provided, among other things, 4,000 sq. ft. of leased premises located at 77 Provost Drive, North York, for SPoT Park Place to build a SPoT Coffee café known as SPoT Coffee Park Place café, which was eventually fully developed by SPoT Park Place, and which opened its doors for business on November 29, 2012. Shortly thereafter in May of 2013, and for reasons outlined in SPoT Coffee's claim, SPoT Park Place had to permanently close its doors for business after incurring heavy development and operational losses.
SPoT Coffee is pleased to announce today that, after 7 years culminating in a 5-day final trial that took place in the first week of March of this year, the Honourable Justice S. Vella of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice found in favour of SPoT Park Place and awarded damages for SPoT Park Place's operating losses of $269,296 and damages for the costs of building the SPoT Park Place café of $757,755.34, as well as interest on the damages to run from January 29, 2015, the date the claim was filed by SPoT Park Place, until such time Concord Adex makes full payment of the damages to SPoT Park Place. Furthermore, the court asked SPoT Coffee's lawyers to file cost submissions within the next 20 days to seek to recover their legal costs. The Honourable Justice S. Vella also dismissed a counterclaim made by Concord Adex against SPoT Park Place.
To review the full 58-page judgement, you can visit the SPoT Coffee's website or its social media channels on Wednesday, October 13.
The Company intends to use the funds that SPoT Park Place has been awarded to continue with its plan to reduce its liabilities and grow its assets.
