Las Vegas, NV September 3, 2020 — OTC PR WIRE — The 4Less Group, Inc. (OTC PINK: FLES) announces they have closed on a strategic transaction to reach this year’s goal of paying-off all their remaining highly discounted convertible debt totaling approximately $2.3 million in principal and accrued interest plus over $1 million in additional associated derivative liabilities for a total of $3.3M of book value liabilities.
The convertible debt was replaced with a $1.2 million, non-convertible promissory note with a 2-year term and a fixed interest rate of 12%. This results in the savings of $1.1 million in total debt with a substantially lower interest rate as well as the reduction of an additional over $1 million in associated derivative liability.
For the investment the investor received, along with the 1.2 million note, 950 thousand warrants with a $0.40 exercise price and 150 shares of series C preferred shares. At the completion of the transaction, 4Less Group will have just over 1.1 million shares outstanding.
In conjunction with the overall debt reduction, the Board of Directors of The 4Less Group, Inc. has recommended that the Company reduce its authorized shares from 1 billion down to 15 million.
“We are very excited to be able to deliver on this very important milestone that we first announced at the end of February,” said Timothy Armes, president, and CEO of The 4Less Group Inc, “and now, with a healthy balance sheet and share structure, I believe we are well-positioned to take AutoParts4Less.com to a whole new level.”
“I am very happy with the significant progress that we have been seeing operationally,” said Chris Davenport president and founder of the Auto Parts 4Less, Inc. “We are also continuing to deliver on the other points mentioned in that press release, namely increasing sales, decreasing costs and relying on minimally dilutive capital with the continued goal of maximizing shareholder value.”
Transaction details can be found in the September 3rd, 2020 8K filing.
