INTEGRATED BIOPHARMA ANNOUNCES CONVERSION OF $5,350,000 CONVERTIBLE DEBT TO EQUITY

 

HILLSIDE, NEW JERSEY (August 1, 2018) - Integrated BioPharma, Inc. (OTC BB: INBP) (the “Company” or “INBP”) announced today the conversion of its Amended and Restated Convertible Secured Promissory Note, in the principal amount of $5,350,000, made by the Company and payable to the order of the CD Financial, LLC (the “Note”) into common stock of INBP.  CD Financial, LLC exercised its right to convert the entire principal amount of the Note into 8,230,769 shares of the Company’s common stock at the contractual price of $0.65 per share.

 

E Gerald Kay, CEO of INBP stated “we are delighted that Mr. DeSantis, through his ownership of CD Financial, LLC, our long-term supporter, major shareholder and Board Member, has elected to further invest in INBP’s growth strategy.” Mr. Kay went on to say “we believe this conversion of debt to equity not only strengthens our financial condition, but also positions INBP to embark on a new growth strategy.”

 

CD Financial, LLC is a Florida Limited Liability Company owned by Carl DeSantis, a longtime significant shareholder and Director of the Company. Mr. DeSantis stated “the nutraceutical supplement industry is experiencing extensive and what I believe, sustainable growth based upon the graying of America, the maladies which can accompany a longer life span and the ever-rising costs of healthcare.” He further stated, “as founder of Rexall Sundown, I plan on playing a more active role in the Company to better position ourselves to take advantage of this dynamic and still highly fragmented market.”

 

Following the conversion, Mr. DeSantis and entities controlled by him will continue to have beneficial ownership in INBP of approximately 44%, substantially all in the form of common stock.
