CV Sciences, Inc. Extinguishes Convertible Debt
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CV Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:CVSI) (the "Company", "CV Sciences", "our", "us" or "we"), a preeminent consumer wellness company specializing in hemp extracts and other proven science-backed, natural ingredients and products, announced today that CV Sciences extinguished its entire outstanding convertible debt.
"We have retired all of our outstanding convertible debt which strengthens our balance sheet and helps us with our long-term strategic initiatives," said Joseph Dowling, Chief Executive Officer. "The termination of all convertible debt and related obligations to issue stock to our lender will eliminate the dilutive impact of this debt on our stockholders. In addition, the termination of our convertible debt will eliminate the downward pressure on our stock caused by sale of the shares issued at each conversion event. Our focus is to support our business goals that build shareholder value, and in this regard we believe eliminating the negative impact of this financing is just as important as continuing to grow our PlusCBD™ branded products business."
Additional details regarding the transaction were included in CV Sciences Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on August 25, 2022, and are available by visiting www.cvsciences.com.
