Digerati Technologies Eliminates Derivative Liability Associated with its Convertible Debt
SAN ANTONIO, TX (GlobeNewswire) – February 19, 2021 – Digerati Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: DTGI) (“Digerati” or the “Company”), a provider of cloud services specializing in UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) solutions for the small to medium-sized business (“SMB”) market, is pleased to announce that it has eliminated its entire derivative liability associated with the Company’s convertible notes.
The convertible notes held by an institutional shareholder were extinguished through a combination of accelerated conversion to equity at a fixed price and in the form of a new one year note with a fixed-priced “floor” on conversion that can be prepaid at any time by the Company. The improved terms and fixed-priced structure that eliminates the derivative accounting treatment and related P&L expense associated with the legacy convertible notes are expected to have a positive impact on the Company’s future financial results.
Arthur L. Smith, CEO of Digerati, stated, “While securing capital over these past two years has been necessary for execution of our business plan and reaching our current stage of corporate development, we recognize the potential negative effect certain financing structures and terms can have on our stock price. We are extremely pleased to have reached a point where we can remove this type of debt and demonstrate the continued commitment and enthusiasm of our institutional shareholder while lowering our cost of capital. With current annual revenue at over $14 million and an operation generating positive cash flow, we have much more advantageous capital available to us for funding future growth, as evidenced by our recently secured $20 million credit facility. Our team is very excited for 2021 as we continue forging ahead towards meeting our stated corporate goal of uplisting to a major U.S. national exchange.”
