BitNile Holdings, through Its Subsidiary Ault Alliance, Acquires Property for $15.5 Million for Multifamily Project in Florida – Yahoo Finance

LAS VEGAS, December 31, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BitNile Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: NILE), a diversified holding company ("BitNile" or the "Company") announced today that its subsidiary, Ault Alliance, Inc. ("Ault Alliance") has, through its subsidiary Ault Global Real Estate Equities, Inc. ("AGREE"), acquired a property in St. Petersburg, FL for $15.5 million that will be used for the development of a high-rise multi-family project. The property is located in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, between Mirror Lake and the Tampa Bay, nestled in an historic neighborhood that provides pedestrian access to Tampa Bay and a multitude of retail, hospitality and office experiences. The implementation of AGREE’s strategy augments Ault Alliance’s portfolio by diversifying it with additional commercial real estate cash flow and investment opportunities. BitNile has previously announced its intention to spin off Ault Alliance to its stockholders.
The property is currently zoned and entitled with planning approval from the city of St. Petersburg for development of a 22-story tower, with 269 residential units and mixed retail on the first floor. The total project is estimated to cost $114 million. AGREE is partnering with Schock & Haywood Development, a multi-family and hospitality development firm with experience in the California, New York, Georgia and Florida markets. Construction is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022 with completion estimated in the second quarter of 2024, subject to financing.
Tampa/St. Petersburg is a growing metropolitan area with high occupancy rates. The most recent U.S. Census data shows population growth in St Petersburg of 8.2% over the last decade. The average occupancy rate is approximately 98% (per Axiometrics, a provider of apartment market data). While effective multi-family rents have grown 31% year over year in St. Petersburg according to Axiometrics, the market still offers more affordability than the more popular metropolitan areas in south Florida.
Ault Alliance formed AGREE earlier in 2021 to invest in commercial real estate, including hospitality and multi-family housing properties, with a concentration in the middle-market segment. Christopher Wu is the President of Ault Alliance and the Chief Executive Officer of AGREE.
Mr. Wu stated, "We are pleased to be in a position to acquire this property in a growing metropolitan area, surrounded by historic buildings, a public library, and various other municipal buildings, as our second acquisition through AGREE. We believe this development project will provide AGREE and thereby the Company with strong returns and attractive long-term cash flows. We are also pleased to partner with Schock & Haywood Development, whose principals have a solid track record of developing multi-family properties."
The Company’s Founder and Executive Chairman, Milton "Todd" Ault, III added, "We are optimistic about the potential to create a project that is consistent with St. Petersburg’s development standards for the historic neighborhood. This project will transform the character of the neighborhood and it is a privilege to invest in this opportunity. We have a team of professionals to execute and bring the 301,000 square foot mixed-use tower to fruition as we grow our commercial real estate portfolio."
BitNile previously announced its plan to split into two public companies by distributing the equity of Ault Alliance to its stockholders. Following the spin-off of Ault Alliance, the Company, through its BitNile, Inc. subsidiary, will be a pure-play provider of Bitcoin mining and data center operations, pursuing DeFi-related initiatives. Ault Alliance will maintain its focus on the Company’s legacy businesses and more recently initiated operations, including lending and investing in the real estate and distressed asset spaces as well as, among others, defense, and power solutions, including electric vehicle charging products.

Shares of Brazilian fintech StoneCo (NASDAQ: STNE) rallied 8% today as of market close. The beleaguered digital-payments firm has been struggling from a combination of business missteps (e.g., the temporary freezing of its small-lending segment) and Brazil's economy dipping back into recession. Ever since reporting strong revenue growth but a steep loss (due to a one-time write-down on investment value) for Q3 2021, there's been little in the way of good news to lure investors back.
2022 is here. But time may be short to protect yourself from this threat.
Shares of Co-Diagnostics (NASDAQ: CODX) were sinking 12.4% for the week as of the market close on Thursday. Ocugen (NASDAQ: OCGN) was down 5.5% after plunging as much as 19.2% earlier in the week. Investors appear to believe that the demand for COVID tests, therapies, and vaccines could decline in 2022 and beyond.
Feeling good about your 28% S&P 500 gain this year? Sure, it's great — until you realize you could have gained more than 4,050% instead.
Let’s talk about losses. Specifically, let’s talk about individual stock losses during a time of generally rising markets. While these situations can define stocks that are fundamentally unsound, they can also highlight stocks that are primed for rapid gains. To start with, we’re still in a long-term bullish trend. It got started back in March of 2020, when the economy hit bottom during the initial stage of the pandemic crisis. Since then, that first bounce back up has turned into a strong and s
