NEW CASTLE, Del., June 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ScripsAmerica Inc. (OTCBB:SCRC), a leading supplier of prescription, OTC and nutraceutical drugs, today announced that the Company has prepaid the balance of an outstanding convertible promissory note held by Continental Equities LLC with a principal amount of $114,700.
The convertible note was issued on April 15th, 2013 and has an 8% interest rate per annum as outlined in the securities purchase agreement between ScripsAmerica and Continental Equities LLC. The note's maturity date is April 15, 2014; however on June 7, 2013, the remaining principal and all accrued but unpaid interest and any other amounts due under the note are convertible into shares of the Company's common stock at a specified discount. The Company's final payment rendered the convertible note paid in full prior to its eligibility for conversion into shares.
"As has been the case with two other convertible notes this year, ScripsAmerica has decided to prepay its note with Continental Equity in order to prevent any potential dilutive effect it could have on our stock if converted into common shares. This action will simplify our capital structure as well as protect the interests of our company and its shareholders," commented Bob Schneiderman, CEO of ScripsAmerica.
