RALEIGH, N.C., June 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LandStar, Inc. (OTCPK: LDSR) (“LandStar” or the “Company”), the parent company of Data443™ Risk Mitigation, Inc. (“Data443”), a leading data security and privacy company, today announced the completion of joint efforts with finance partners resulting in the favorable new terms on existing debt.  Additionally, the Company has received notice of final conversion of the $125,000 legacy convertible note issued by the Company in 2014 and subsequently acquired by Blue Citi LLC (“Blue Citi”).

Effective June 19, 2019 the Company and three existing note holders have agreed as follows:

  • Two convertible notes due in July 2019 will have their maturity extended to April 15, 2020, and there will be no conversions until April 15, 2020 – subject to the Company continuing its listing and share reserve obligations.
  • Any conversion rights available to Blue Citi LLC under note for its investment in the Company will be waived until March 31, 2020– subject to the Company continuing its listing and share reserve obligations.
  • Reduction in share reserve requirements for the Company to secure the existing debt instruments.
  • A nominal premium of 10% has been applied to the existing note balances as part of the agreements.

Additionally, the Company received a ‘Notice of Final Conversion’ from Blue Citi for the legacy convertible note of $125,000.  This eliminates the legacy liability and the subsequent derivative liability for which the Company has had to account.

“These agreements represent a significant step forward for the Company toward closing additional funding needed to execute its business plan, as communicated, and removes obstacles identified in our refinancing and capital-raising efforts.  Additionally, reserve requirements on the existing debt was severely impacting our equity availability.  These changes to our current debt alleviate these issues with our existing and new funding partners,” stated Jason Remillard, CEO of LandStar and founder of Data443.
