NXT Nutritionals Holdings, Inc. Announces Restructuring of Long-Term Debt

SPRINGFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - Dec 14, 2011) - NXT Nutritionals Holdings, Inc. ("Company") (OTCBB: NXTH), developer and marketer of SUSTA™ Natural Sweetener, the great tasting, all-natural, healthy sweetener, and Healthy Dairy® non-fat yogurt smoothies that are sweetened with SUSTA, announced today that effective on November 4, 2011, the Company restructured its long-term debt in connection with a recent $1,000,0000 capital investment by NXT Investment Partners, LLC ("NXT Partners") previously announced on November 28, 2011.

More than 90% of the holders of notes issued to certain investors in a financing that closed in November 20, 2010 (the "2010 Notes") agreed to amend the terms of the Notes, which resulted in all of the 2010 Notes being amended. The amended terms of the 2010 Notes include, among other things, the extension of the maturity date to November 21, 2015, a waiver of any obligation for the Company to make payments until the new maturity date, reduces the conversion price of the 2010 Notes and the exercise price of the warrants to twenty-five ($0.25) cents per share, a waiver of any further anti-dilution rights, and the subordination of the security interests of the holders of the 2010 Notes to that of the NXT Partners.

In addition, the holders of over 70% of the outstanding amounts due under the convertible debentures entered into by the Company in 2009 (the "2009 Debentures") have signed an agreement amending the terms of their 2009 Debentures. The agreement only amends the 2009 Debentures of those holders who signed the agreement. Among other things, the maturity dates of those 2009 Debentures have been extended to November 21, 2015, the holders waived any future anti-dilution rights and the conversion price of the 2009 Debentures and exercise price of the warrants have been reduced to twenty-five ($0.25) cents per share.

The Company's CEO Mike McCarthy said: "The debt restructuring is a positive development for the Company. We will continue to aggressively pursue the growth of the Company, with our primary focus on delivering our high quality products to the military. The Company's Healthy Dairy® yogurt smoothies are approved on the U.S. Navy's Standard Daily Core Menu and are currently being sold to the Navy and to the United States Military Academy at Annapolis and the United States Air Force Academy."
