SHREWSBURY, N.J., Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems, Inc. (OTC:ICLD) (“InterCloud” or "Company") announced today that it entered into an Exchange Agreement (the "Agreement") with the holder of certain term notes issued by the Company, exchanging the debt for preferred equity.
Pursuant to the Agreement with our former president, the Company exchanged over $5.4 million of Convertible Debt and eliminated over $1.8 million of accrued interest in exchange for approximately $2.3 million of Preferred Equity. The Preferred Equity may be exchanged for Common Stock over a five (5) year period. The Company is also negotiating with other convertible noteholders to exchange their debt into preferred equity.
The effect of the Agreement is to eliminate all debt service and interest accrual on the debt and create $2.3 Million of new Shareholder Equity in the process.

InterCloud Systems CEO, Mark Munro stated, “This is our first step in creating new shareholder equity as we push forward with our plans to eliminate costly subordinated debt and interest accruals. Our goal is to continue to restructure all debt and create an entity with no debt. We can then focus on rebuilding shareholder value through revenue growth and profitability. This was a major step in the right direction.”
