HJOE Settles Financial Dispute
DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 12, 2014 / Hangover Joe's Holding Corporation (OTCQB: HJOE)(the "Company"), the maker of "The Hangover" Recovery Shot and developers of an innovative state of the art proprietary Git-R-Done-Energy Shot with Git-R-Done Productions, Inc and Larry the Cable Guy, is pleased to announce that it has settled its dispute with TCA Global Master Credit Fund, L.P.
The $513,000 Settlement Agreement with TCA Global Master Credit Fund, L.P. ("TCA"), includes GEL Properties LLC ("GEL") and Union Capital LLC ("Union"), who each entered into Assignment and Assumption Agreements with TCA in the amount of $230,000 payable in four equal monthly installments and the Company agreed to pay TCA $53,000 sixty days after the final installments are paid under the Assignment and Assumption Agreements.
The Company simultaneously issued replacement notes to GEL and Union for the exchange of the liability acquired from TCA for 8% Convertible Redeemable Notes (the "Convertible Notes") in the principal amount of $57,500 each for their first installments.
All interest and principal under these Convertible Notes must be repaid on July 12, 2015 and are convertible into common stock, at the note holder's option, at a 45% discount to the average of the three lowest closing prices of the common stock during the 20 trading day period prior to conversion.
"This is an important step in allowing us to obtain a working capital line of credit that can better allow us to grow the Company," said Matthew Veal, CEO. "We have entered into an important stretch where we have several promising test markets underway in the upcoming weeks for the Git-R-Done Energy Shot. If these test markets continue to progress in a favorable manner we will need the type of working capital line that can grow with sales and absorb any negative cash flow that often occurs with growth. The settlement negotiations were lengthy and complicated, but we look forward to having this behind us so we can focus all of our energies into growing our company."
"We are pleased to have this resolved," said Michael Jaynes, Chairman and Co-founder of Hangover Joe's. "With the addition of our new manufacturer, additional logistics and fulfillment facilities, and of our course our new product, Larry the Cable Guy's Git-R-Done Energy Shot, we believe we are poised to achieve much greater sales and financial performance than ever before in our company's history. We have made changes where needed, and continue to look for ways to improve our Company."
"We have certainly survived some difficult growing pains," added Shawn Adamson, Co-Founder and Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Hangover Joe's. "While it is inevitable that more will occur, we are excited about our position going forward. The response to our new product, in the market place and among users, to Larry the Cable Guy's Git-R-Done energy shot has been very favorable, and this in turn is helping us reestablish our sales of Hangover Joes Recovery Shots, which had effectively been reduced to a trickle while we worked out the details of this settlement." added Adamson. "We look forward to our new relationships with Union Capital, Gel Properties and others that can Git-R-Done for Hangover Joe's."
