NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - March 27, 2014) - Yappn Corp. (OTCQB:YPPN) ("Yappn or "Company") (www.yappn.com) is pleased to announce that the Company has repaid the Convertible Promissory Note owed to Asher Enterprises Inc. due on July 2, 2014 early and in full. As a result the note is no longer outstanding and cannot be converted into shares of common stock and the Schedule 13G filed by Asher on February 7, 2014 has been nullified.
Yappn's Founder and CEO, David Lucatch, stated, "Yappn is focused on creating shareholder value. With that in mind, we continue to work to manage our finances and have chosen to repay our debt to Asher in cash rather than allow for the conversion of outstanding Asher debt into deeply discounted shares of our common stock." Mr. Lucatch added, "It is the Company's intention, where possible, to repay our remaining Asher obligation in the same manner, in cash and not discounted shares."
