Jan 08, 2016, 17:00 ET from Vapor Corp.

DANIA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vapor Corp. (NASDAQ CM: VPCO & VPCOU) ("Vapor"), a leading U.S.-based distributor and retailer of vaporizers, e-liquids, e-cigarettes and e-hookahs, announced today that it has withdrawn and terminated its previously announced offer to issue shares of its common stock and warrants in exchange for the outstanding Units sold in the July 2015 offering (NASDAQ: VPCOU).  The exchange offer was made pursuant to an offer to purchase dated December 11, 2015 and a related letter of transmittal. None of the Units were accepted for exchange in the exchange offer, and all Units previously tendered and not withdrawn will be promptly returned to their respective tendering holders.

The Board of Directors of Vapor and its representatives had engaged in a dialogue with certain holders of Units purporting to beneficially own over 10% of the outstanding Units about their willingness to participate in the exchange offer.  Such holders have communicated that they would not be participating in the exchange offer and, accordingly, Vapor believes that the minimum tender condition for the exchange offer will not be satisfied.

Persons with questions regarding the termination of the exchange offer relating to the Units should contact Okapi Partners, LLC, the Information Agent for the exchange offer, at 1212 Avenue of the Americas, 24th Floor, New York, NY 10036, (telephone number: (212) 297-0720 or toll free: (877) 629-6355) and email
