AlumiFuel Provides Update On Debt Restructuring

CENTENNIAL, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 21, 2017) - AlumiFuel Power Corporation (OTC PINK: AFPW) ("AlumiFuel" or the "Company") today announced that it has successfully negotiated agreements with certain noteholders to restructure and refinance its outstanding debt.

The Company has reached agreements with three of its convertible noteholders whereby the Company may redeem the notes for cash. The agreements call for a freeze on conversions of debt to shares of common stock by these noteholders. Additionally, the Company is targeting a reduction of approximately $1.2 million in liabilities on its balance sheet that are related to various legacy ventures.

AlumiFuel CEO, Ryan Schadel, commented, "I have completed a review of each liability on the Company's balance sheet. The majority of these liabilities are payables and debt related to various failed ventures from prior management over the years. The Company is embarking on a path toward the future and liabilities from the past must be drastically reduced. New management and new shareholders should not foot the bill for prior failures."

The Company intends to use short term financings to refinance so called "toxic debt" while its scales up its operation as a diversified holding company and pursues less dilutive means to finance growth.

"We need a lender that we can rely on short term to help fund refinancing and restructuring, but that will also be shareholder friendly. I believe we have that, as evidenced by recent trading in our common stock at 52 week highs," added Mr. Schadel.
