Global Equity International Inc. Is Proud to Announce That It Has Reduced Its "Toxic Convertible Debt" Substantially Since December 31, 2014

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2015) -  Global Equity International, Inc. (OTCQB: GEQU) and its fully-owned subsidiary Global Equity Partners Plc., a specialist consultancy firm with it head office located in Dubai (X3 Jumeirah Bay Tower, Office 3305, JLT, Dubai, UAE) and service offices in the United Kingdom, is pleased to announce that it has now reduced its toxic debt by more than 90% since December 31, 2014. The Company has only two convertible note holders that are now owed, between them, a total of $19,582. Over the last few months the Company has fully repaid notes, in cash and equity, to Asher Enterprises, Adar Bay and KMB Worldwide.

Peter Smith, CEO of Global Equity International Inc., commented: "It has been a long and hard path that we have had to walk due to the toxic convertible debt that we mistakenly took onboard, but we are very close to being free of this debt and as we have stated before in prior press releases, we have not taken, nor do we intend to ever take, any new toxic loans for the benefit of the company and its shareholders. During this time we have continued to build the business and concentrate on the operational day to day activities. This hard work and effort by all members of the GEP team can now start to be capitalized without the added weight of the toxic convertible debt."
