Newport Beach, Calif., April 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE.MKT: DPW), a diversified holding company (the “Company,” or “DPW”), today announced it has completed a payment of $1,500,000 towards debt held by our senior lender which brings the Company’s total reduction of debt to approximately $10,500,000 year to date in 2019. The Company noted that with this payment it has made significant progress in restructuring its total debt which supports our growth initiatives and manufacturing base. DPW continues to work with its creditors to service and manage its debt, strengthen its capital structure while moving forward with profitability and other objectives for the year. As stated during its Investor Conference on February 25, 2019, the Company’s goals for this year include decreasing its short-term liabilities, increasing revenue growth and improving financial and operational performance.
DPW’s CEO and Chairman, Milton “Todd” Ault, III said, “We are very pleased we were able to work with our lenders to significantly reduce our debt, de-risk our balance sheet as this will improve our bottom line. During 2018, the cost of our debt resulted in nearly $16 million in cash and non-cash expenses. The year-to-date reduction in debt will result in a significant improvement to our operating results. Further, because the majority of our debt is short-term obligations, the reduction in debt service will materially reduce our overall cash requirements for 2019. This short-term debt financed the bulk of our corporate acquisitions and other efforts to expand our revenue streams.” Ault continued, “With the tremendous downturn in the cryptocurrency marketplace throughout 2018, the servicing of this short-term debt was challenging while we sought to expand of our manufacturing and customer base this past year. We are pleased that we are accomplishing our plan to restructure our debt in 2019 and believe we will begin to report positive results starting in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The Company remains dedicated to attaining our stated goals for the year that include driving the Company’s revenue growth and profitability, reducing overhead and improving operational performance.”
