As a result of the transaction, Green Hygienics, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Innovations, has turned strategic payables on the balance sheet into equity. In addition to significantly strengthening the balance sheet, the transaction will enable the Company to focus on increasing sales and its ongoing efforts to develop high-quality eco-friendly products made from sustainable and tree-free resources such as bamboo. 100% of the financing is being used to pay for the Company's cost of goods to supply its customers, allowing Green Innovations to immediately fill growing product demand and creating free cash flow that can be used to drive future growth.
"There is growing consumer demand for earth-friendly biodegradable products like those of Green Innovations," commented John Kirkland, Managing Director of Ironridge Global Partners. "According to the 2013 Small Business Sustainability Report, growth rates of green product segments are outpacing traditional alternatives. Ironridge Global is very pleased to be able to facilitate putting more of Green Innovations' products on more shelves in more stores. It's good for the company, consumers and the planet."
