ICOA to Cancel Over 23% of Issued Shares

Feb 10, 2012, 09:00 ET from ICOA, Inc.

WARWICK, R.I., Feb. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ICOA, Inc. (OTCPK: ICOA) is providing this update to Shareholders regarding an important aspect of its ongoing restructuring efforts for 2012 – the Company's share structure.

Share Structure: It has come to the Company's attention that there is some confusion with regard to the "ICOA Creditors Trust" which was set up in November 2011.  The purpose of the trust was to provide investors with the assurance that future dilution would be limited as the Company settles its old debts.  To date, no settlements have been negotiated, and no shares issued from the Trust.  After discussion with the Trustee, the Company and Trustee have decided that 2 billion (2,000,000,000) shares will be cancelled out of the Trust by March 30, 2012.  This will leave the Trust with 1.3 billion shares to accomplish its purpose of assisting with the restructure of the Company's balance sheet.  Management hopes this restructuring will be completed over the next 18 to 24 months.

Reverse Stock Split: ICOA's management would like to assure shareholders that there is currently NO plan for a reverse stock split in the foreseeable future.  While market conditions are always in flux, this is not part of our growth and restructuring plan at this time.  It is important to point out that the current management has only done one reverse of shares (April 2010) since 1991.
