WALTHAM, Mass., May 4, 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, is pleased to announce the execution of a series of transactions that strengthen the Company's balance sheet through the elimination of a portion of the company's outstanding convertible debt. In addition, these steps remove any potential shareholder dilution that may have resulted from a debt to equity conversion of these securities. In total, the transactions eliminated $9.3 million in convertible debentures ($8.5 million net of prepaid interest) that, if converted, would have caused significant dilution to American DG Energy's existing shareholder base.
Speaking about the transaction, American DG Energy's co-Chief Executive Officer John Hatsopoulos said, "These transactions put American DG on more secure financial footing. Although we still have a lot of work to do righting the installed base, we now have the space and time to carefully implement our site improvement initiatives. Right now, the Company has enough money to complete our planned site improvements and backlog of projects. Although we cannot currently finance any new projects, management continues to explore all alternatives for the business going forward." For more information about management's business plan, please see a detailed discussion of the sites initiative in the Company's most recent filing on Form 10-K dated March, 30, 2016.
American DG Energy exchanged approximately 14.72 million shares in EuroSite Power Inc. (OTCQX: EUSP), a nearly 22% stake in its European subsidiary, for elimination of a portion of the outstanding 6% convertible debentures due May 2018. With this swap of EuroSite Power shares in exchange for partial extinguishment of the convertible debt, American DG Energy reduced the convertible debt outstanding to $9.2 million. The Company is pursuing a similar debt exchange transaction for the remaining convertible debt outstanding and expects to complete that subsequent transaction in the coming weeks.
