TEMECULA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2014) - Hop-on, Inc. (OTC Pink: HPNN) (PINKSHEETS: HPNN) is pleased to announce that today it has received executed Debt Exchange Agreements from two major debt holders. The reduction in debt with these Debt Exchange Agreements will be $7,162,000.00. This means there will be no dilution of shareholders from debt conversions for over a year and a positive $7.1 million paid in capital on the balance sheet.
These Debt Exchange Agreements remove $7,162,000 in debt from Hop-on's balance sheet. Not only will the long term debt be removed from the balance sheet, but the conversion to preferred equity provides a boost to the stockholders' equity portion of the balance sheet, and this amount can now be booked as additional paid in capital. This positive financial move will be reflected in the next financial statement filed by the company.
Peter Michaels, Hop-on CEO, stated, "As promised, Hop-on is not diluting the current shareholders. Further, there is no reverse split on the horizon. The debt could have been converted into common shares that would dilute the shareholders' positions. However, these agreements stipulated the preferred shares must be held for at least one year. This is positive for current and future shareholders, as the value of their investment should not be diluted, adding value to their commitment to Hop-on. These agreement prepare Hop-on's balance sheet for significant increase in stockholders' equity moving forward."
