TEMECULA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Hop-on, Inc. (OTC Pink: HPNN) (PINKSHEETS: HPNN) is pleased to announce that today it has returned one billion (1,000,000,000) shares to treasury. These shares were held in escrow in anticipation of conversion of debt by the Company's long term debt holders, and these debt holders have elected to take, under their Debt Exchange Agreements, preferred stock of the Company, thereby allowing Hop-on to return these shares to treasury.
In conjunction with the press release yesterday, this means there will be no dilution of Hop-on shareholders from debt conversions for over a year and a positive $7.1 million paid in capital on the balance sheet.
Announced previously, the Debt Exchange Agreements removed $7,162,000 in debt from Hop-on's balance sheet. Not only was the long term debt removed from the balance sheet, but the conversion to preferred equity provided a boost to the stockholders' equity portion of the balance sheet, and this amount is now booked as additional paid in capital. This positive financial move will be reflected in the next financial statement filed by the Company.
Peter Michaels, Hop-on CEO, stated, "As promised, Hop-on is not diluting the current shareholders. In fact, with this staggering number of shares having been returned to treasury, we have compressed the shares outstanding even more. This is positive for current and future shareholders, as the value of their investment should not be diluted, adding value to their commitment to Hop-on. At the upcoming shareholders' meeting, we look forward to discussing upcoming potential mergers, our goals to become a fully reporting public company, getting off of pink sheets, and enhancing shareholder value even more as the year progresses."
