DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), a diversified holding company (“DPW,” or the “Company”), announced that it has entered into two separate exchange agreements with two creditors for debt previously in default in an aggregate amount in excess of $1.4M. The Company restructured the debt by issuing new convertible debt in the principal amount of $2,033,031.14. To date, the principal amount of debt that DPW has either eliminated or restructured for the year presently exceeds $14.8M.
On July 2, 2019, the Company entered into an exchange agreement with an institutional investor pursuant to which, in exchange for the surrender of that certain Term Promissory Note issued by the Company to the investor on September 21, 2018, the Company issued to the investor a new Convertible Promissory Note in the principal amount of $783,031.14 with an interest rate of 12% per annum and a maturity date of December 31, 2019. Subject to the approval by the NYSE American, the new note shall be convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to the greater of $0.22 per share or 80% of the lowest daily volume-weighted average price for the three trading days prior to the date of conversion.
The Company entered into another exchange agreement on July 2, 2019 with another investor pursuant to which, in exchange for the surrender of certain debt instruments held by this investor and payable by the Company, the Company issued to the investor a new convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $1,250,000 with an interest rate of 8% per annum and a maturity date of December 31, 2019. Subject to the approval by the NYSE American, the new note shall be convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to $0.22 per share.
From the Company’s perspective, the most prominent aspect of these agreements is the exchange of non-convertible debt for convertible debt, thus enabling the respective investors, at their respective election, to reduce the debt owed to each of them by the Company through the conversion of the principal and accrued interest of their debt instruments into shares of the Company’s common stock, which would obviate the requirement for the Company to repay such dollar amounts in cash.
DPW’s CEO and Chairman, Milton “Todd” Ault, III said, “We are very pleased we continue to be able to work with our lenders to resolve our liabilities and cure any defaults at hand. It is quite significant for DPW that we have resolved or reduced over $14.8M in short-term debt and look forward in the current quarter to completing the restructuring of our remaining short-term debt, as we previously announced this year. We look forward to the remainder of 2019 as we build on our progress and remain dedicated to increase revenue growth and sources, improve our bottom-line results and attain our stated goals for 2019. We are very pleased our creditors continue to work with us as we strive to improve our capital structure.”
