WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American DG Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: ADGE, the "Company"), an On-Site Utility provider offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to hospitality, healthcare, housing and fitness facilities, today announced the execution of binding agreements that will further reduce convertible debt outstanding. Via a series of related transactions, convertible debt outstanding will be reduced to just $3.4 million, down significantly from the $17.7 million in debt principal outstanding at year end 2015.
"Although various adverse factors may have influenced the terms of this deal, we believe it absolutely remained in the best interests of American DG Energy shareholders to reduce the debt burden of the company and minimize any potential shareholder dilution that may have resulted from the conversion of these securities," said John Hatsopoulos, the Company's Co-Chief Executive Officer.
American DG Energy will exchange approximately 9.7 million shares in EuroSite Power Inc. (OTCQX: EUSP), for elimination of a portion of the outstanding 6% convertible debentures due May 2018. A further 5.5 million shares of EuroSite Power will be sold for cash at $0.40 per share, with the resulting cash used for pre-payment of additional convertible debt. In conjunction with the transactions, 1.02 million warrants (expiring October 2017 at $0.60 strike) will also be cancelled.
The combination of these various transactions, set to be completed in the fourth quarter 2016, will allow American DG Energy to reduce the convertible debt outstanding to $3.4 million and its stake in EuroSite Power to 2.03%. The remaining convertible debt will be restructured to carry zero coupon and retain the original May 2018 maturity.
