Visium Technologies Repays Outstanding Variable Rate Convertible Notes
Repayment of Toxic Convertible Debt Reduces Potential Equity Dilution and
Readies Company for Rapid Expansion
FAIRFAX, VA / ACCESSEWIRE / OCTOBER 22, 2020 / Visium Technologies, Inc. (“Visium” or the “Company”) (OTC PINK: VISM), a provider of Big Data analytics and real-time cybersecurity context focused on visualization technologies, announced today that the Company has repaid and satisfied in full the remaining $77,000 that had been owed to two noteholders pursuant to variable rate toxic convertible notes which were initially issued in January 2019. Such notes are being paid off using the proceeds from the issuance of two unsecured promissory notes totaling $150,000. The new promissory notes have a one-year term and bear interest at 8%. As part of the purchase and sale of such promissory notes, the Company issued 90,000,000 restricted shares of its common stock to the purchasers, but such notes are not convertible, making these new notes more favorable to the Company as there will be no future dilution resulting from variable-rate conversion terms.
Mr. Lucky commented, "I know the importance to our shareholders of paying off these toxic notes; it is an important first step in creating shareholder value by eliminating the dilution and the continued downward selling pressure that these notes have had on our share price over the last year. We continue to focus on cybersecurity and CyGraph, and are making great strides behind the scenes to bring CyGraph to market very soon.
The Company believes it is well-positioned to accelerate our growth strategy and close several near-term revenue opportunities, as we expect to see our first significant revenue from CyGraph in the coming weeks.”
