NEW YORK, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DirectView Holdings, Inc. ("DirectView") (OTCQB: DIRV), a company focused on ownership and management of leading video and security technology companies, today announced it has issued a convertible promissory note (the "Note") to an undisclosed institutional investor (the "Investor") in the principal amount of $338,000. The Company plans to use the capital to expand its marketing efforts for its security and surveillance services business.
Commenting on the capital raise, Roger Ralston, CEO and Chairman of DirectView stated, "This capital will enable us to step up our marketing efforts in several key market categories including the cannabis industry, education, transportation and hotel / property management among others. We believe there is a growing need for security providers with the technical knowhow to bridge different platforms and products to create customized and cost effective surveillance solutions, and we intend to use this cash infusion to build our sales and service team to target these large market categories. We are pleased to have secured this institutional investment and look forward to working with this Investor in the future to help us opportunistically grow DirectView's business in the years to come for the benefit of our stockholders."
The Note bears interest at the rate of eight percent (8%) per annum until paid in full and can convert into shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $0.0175 per share, subject to certain provisions. The note is not convertible into common shares for a period of 6 months. In a separate transaction, the company retired $35,000.00 of notes convertible at $0.0001 per share on April 7, 2014 for a total of $42,483.00 including interest. Management believes the net effect of the two transactions are favorable for the Company and its stockholders.
