DENVILLE, N.J., June 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Healthcare Corporation of America (HCCA), (the "Company") today announced that it secured $2.95 million in new financing. The company closed on $2.2 million in new financing as well as securing an agreement to fund $750,000 in additional funding by June 15, 2014.
The Company issued three-year secured convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $3.2 million, bearing interest at 10.0% per annum, and warrants to purchase approximately 64.3 million shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price of $0.10 per share.

Of the $3.2 million of new debentures, $2.2 million was of new funding and $1.0 million was converted from the April 2014 bridge loan (principal plus accrued interest).

In addition, the Company may convert up to $775,000 of accounts payable and other debt into securities having substantially the same terms and conditions as the terms of the new financing.
Concurrently with the new funding, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement with Partners For Growth III, L.P. ("PFG") pursuant to which the terms of its loan to the Company was revised such that, among other things, its $5.73 million promissory note (including accrued interest) was amended to be convertible at a price of $0.15 per share and the outstanding warrants to purchase 3.7 million shares were amended to be exercisable at $0.15 per share.
The Company will file a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission that includes a detailed description of both the transaction with PFG and the new financing transaction.
