DPW Holdings Cures All Defaulted Loans
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW) a diversified holding company (“DPW,” or the “Company”) announced that it has entered into a Master Exchange Agreement dated February 10, 2020 (the “Agreement”) with a family office to resolve debt previously in default in an aggregate amount of up to $7.7 million. The family office has purchased $4.2 million of outstanding debt currently in default and has committed to purchase up to an additional $3.5 million of outstanding debt upon receipt of stockholder approval. In connection with the entry into the Agreement, Dominion Capital, LLC has sold its secured promissory note to the family office, as has another creditor, of which the notes in the hands of the family office are no longer in default, and all litigation between the parties is resolved. The remaining note holders have entered into forbearance agreements and, upon receipt of stockholder approval, the family office has agreed to acquire the debt held by these parties.
DPW’s CEO and Chairman, Milton “Todd” Ault, III said, “Today’s announcement represents a significant milestone for DPW. As a significant stockholder, I am now much more confident in the Company’s future as much uncertainty has been removed. Our supportive partners worked diligently with us to structure these transactions, and I am proud of our team’s persistence in getting this transaction consummated. We are pleased to report that as a result of the closing of the exchange agreement, litigation related to our senior secured creditor has been dropped. The exchange agreement has not only eliminated debt that was in default, but will improve our financial results by reducing the Company’s borrowing costs and will also enable management to focus on the many opportunities we have to grow our business, which was challenging in light of the constraints under our prior debt agreements.”
The first exchange of debt for equity shall occur on the date of the Agreement.
Some of the benefits of the Agreement include:
Elimination of the majority of all outstanding debt, subject to stockholder and regulatory approval;
The full repayment to Dominion of its senior secured note, and the termination of its actions against DPW; and
The other lenders having agreed to forbear taking further actions as the Company seeks stockholder and regulatory approval to issue additional shares as part of the Agreement to eliminate all of the remaining debt in default.
According to the Agreement the family office may exchange debt into a maximum of 19.9% of the outstanding shares of common stock prior to stockholder approval. Please refer to the Form 8-K to be filed later today with the Securities and Exchange Commission for additional details.
