DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), a diversified holding company (“DPW,” or the “Company”), announced that it has entered into an exchange agreement with a creditor for debt previously in default for $1,000,000. The Company restructured the debt by issuing new convertible debt in the principal amount of $1,492,000.00. To date, the principal amount of debt that DPW has either eliminated or restructured for the year presently exceeds $15.8M.
On July 5, 2019, the Company entered into an exchange agreement with an institutional investor pursuant to which, in exchange for the surrender of that certain 12% Promissory Note in the principal amount of $1,000,000 at a 10% original issue discount originally issued pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement dated March 23, 2018, the Company issued to the investor a new Convertible Promissory Note in the principal amount of $1,292,000.00 plus a default premium of $200,000.00, for an aggregate of $1,492,000 with an interest rate of 12% per annum and a maturity date of January 22, 2020. Subject to the approval by the NYSE American, the new note will be convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to $0.22.
From the Company’s perspective, the most prominent aspect of this agreement is the exchange of non-convertible debt for convertible debt, thus enabling the investor, at its election, to reduce the debt owed to it by the Company through the conversion of the principal and accrued interest of its debt instruments into shares of the Company’s common stock, which would obviate the requirement for the Company to repay such dollar amount in cash.
DPW’s CEO and Chairman, Milton “Todd” Ault, III said, “We are very pleased we were able to work with this lender to resolve our liabilities and cure any default at hand. With this transaction, DPW has now either restructured or reduced over $15.8M in short-term debt, has completed restructuring nearly all of the Company’s short-term debt and looks forward in the current quarter to repaying the remaining outstanding balance of under $500,000. We are very excited to reach what we deem as a milestone for DPW with our short-term capital completely restructured and look forward to accelerate our progress for 2019 while remaining dedicated to increasing revenue growth and sources, improving our bottom-line results and attaining our other stated goals for the fiscal year. We once again thank our creditors for working with us as we strive to improve our capital structure.”
