Vapor Group, Inc., VPOR, Reduces Amount of Convertible Debt

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2016) - The Board of Directors of Vapor Group, Inc. (OTCQB: VPOR) (the "Company") announced today that it has entered into agreements with several of its noteholders for the payoff of their convertible promissory notes over time.

Dror Svorai, President and CEO, added, "We are paying down old debt to prevent the issuance of additional shares of the Company from the conversion of this debt which can only result in the further dilution of our common stock." He added, "We regard this reduction as being good news for our shareholders. Clearly it also benefits the Company since it will help us improve our financial strength. In order to pay off this convertible debt, the Company borrowed funds at a reasonable interest rate on terms that do not include any conversion rights of debt to equity, or in any way require the issuance of equity, options or warrants by the Company."
