Luna Technologies Executes Agreement to Redeem Outstanding Convertible Debenture and Temporarily Halt Conversion Activity
NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Luna Technologies International, Inc. (OTCBB:LTII) has today announced that the Company has reached an agreement with NIR Group ("Debenture Holder") to redeem the balance of the outstanding $1,000,000 convertible debenture currently held by NIR Group. For the past two months NIR Group has been converting outstanding debt into registered common shares of the Company and selling those shares in the open market. For the next 45 days all conversion activities will be halted, during which time Luna Technologies can repurchase the balance of the note, which is slightly more than $750,000 as of today. The Company is confident it will be successful in redeeming this convertible note; however, there can be no guarantee of success in this initiative. In the event that the Company fails to redeem the outstanding balance, everything will revert back to the previous terms and NIR Group will receive 1,000,000 additional shares as a penalty. In the meantime the Company is actively seeking potential acquisition targets to create shareholder value in the future.
