PHOENIX, August 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Lithium Exploration Group Inc. (USOTC: LEXG) announced today that it has come to terms with two major debt holders to restructure all of their convertible notes, reducing conversion discount by 50%. In consideration of the significant reduction in debt, each fund will receive two new warrants, which will have a conversion mechanism 300% and 400% above today's market price. The collective view of the company and the debt holders is that Lithium Exploration Group is in a significantly better position than it has been in the past and the heavily dilutive terms of the debt was not sustainable for the company or its shareholders.
"This is exciting news and should show everyone the level of confidence that the debt holders have in the company's current position," commented CEO Alex Walsh. "They have conceded a significant portion of their debt rights in return for warrants that produce a significant incentive to see long-term price appreciation in the LEXG security. This restructuring truly has all parties incentivized in the same direction and should show significant benefit to our existing shareholders for a long time to come."
