Beginning in March 2020, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and its variants impacted global and national economies and resulted in restrictions on and less demand for travel and public gatherings, which significantly impacted tourism and resort activity on the island of Maui. As restrictions on and attitudes toward travel began to relax during the year ended December 31, 2021, our real estate, leasing, and resort amenities segments experienced increased operating revenues. The Company anticipates demand for real estate on the island of Maui will remain strong in 2022.
In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company successfully completed a pension lift-out of 384 plan participants, representing approximately 58% of its total pension plan participants. The lift-out annuitized pension benefits utilizing a 3rd party insurer at a cost of $10.4 million. The Company incurred and recognized a non-cash settlement charge of $4.3 million as a result of the lift-out.
Anticipated Sale of Kapalua Central Resort
In December 2021, the Company entered into a purchase and sale agreement (“PSA”) in an amount of $40.0 million for a 46-acre parcel located within Kapalua Central Resort. Subject to customary diligence and closing conditions, the Company anticipates the PSA to close no later than March 31, 2022.
Anticipated Sale of Omaopio Parcel
