Previously Issued Convertible Notes Now in Friendly Shareholder Hands
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, April 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plandai Biotechnology Inc. (OTC Markets: PLPL) (the “Company” or “Plandai”), a producer of nutraceutical and highly phyto-available extracts, is pleased to provide an update on the status of previously issued convertible notes.
Over the past several months, management has been actively pursuing the resolution of various outstanding convertible notes. Because of these efforts, most of the convertible notes are cancelled or now held by friendly shareholders of the company. The conversion of the balance of these notes could have resulted in material dilution to the Company’s shareholders and potentially a significant decrease in the price of the common stock.
Callum Cottrell-Duffield, Chief Operating Officer of Plandai, commented, “One of our biggest objectives has been the restructuring of our debt. To this end, we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to minimize our operating expenses, so we can avoid taking on new debt while simultaneously looking for a partner to assist in the cleanup of our financial situation as we look to become SEC compliant and fully-reporting in 2018. Having now restructured the majority of our convertible debt, we felt our shareholder base should be aware of our progress.”
