ABCO Energy Pays Off Convertible Debt, Plans Retirement of Remainder

TUCSON, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2019 / ABCO Energy, Inc (OTC PINK: ABCE) (January 31, 2019) is pleased to announce that it has completed the purchase of one half of its outstanding convertible preferred stock before its maturity to prevent further dilution of ABCE shares. At today's prices this move has prevented more than 25,000,000 shares from coming on to the market. We expect to save an equal amount of dilution when we acquire the last convertible preferred series outstanding before maturity, which we intend to do in late February.

"In order to prevent approximately 50,000,000 unfriendly shares from entering the market from the two maturities, we will have paid more than $200,000 for redemption," said Charles O'Dowd, President of ABCO Energy. "However, we are committed to raise all of the funds and already one-half of this amount has been done. We are still expecting our domestic and foreign friends to continue to support us and our market should improve from this effort. This will be the last time we will rely on convertible debt of any kind to fund the Company. No matter what they say, it never works out."

"Since ABCO completed over $3 million in projects during the last fiscal year ending in 2018 and is entering 2019 with nearly $1,450,000 in backlog we should leap forward over the next 12 months. This will improve our cash flow and allow us to take advantage of more profitable opportunities in 2019," added Mr. O'Dowd.
