SACRAMENTO, CA, Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunstock Inc. (OTC Pink: SSOK), an asset backed crypto-currency company focused on acquisitions and tokens, is pleased to announce that the Company has hired The Workout Group LLC to begin the restructuring of all of its outstanding debt.

Sunstock understands the value of reducing the outstanding and authorized share counts to increase shareholder value and to make the company more attractive for long term viability. With the engagement of Mark Basile of The Workout Group LLC, Sunstock has retained an advisory company that has assisted 29 publicly traded companies in remediating over $43 million USD of debt and has assisted in reducing a combined 15 billion shares. The focus with Sunstock will be a capital restructuring and debt remediation. The Company wishes to be clear with shareholders that the restructuring will NOT include a reverse split.

"We understand that in today's OTC market with the competitiveness of attracting hard earned shareholder dollars, we need to start with our own structure. We have specifically sought out the assistance of Mr. Mark Basile, who has extensive knowledge and experience in debt remediation," stated Mr. Jason Chang, Chairman and CEO of Sunstock Inc. "Mr. Basile has worked with a handful of credible investment banking firms, traditional investor relations firms, and several securities attorneys, PCAOB Audit firms, and transfer agents that will be required to get our company back on track."

The Workout Group LLC works with several of the most effective toxic debt litigation attorneys in the country and can engage in litigation in, but not limited to, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts and California. This debt remediation will lead to capital restructuring, which in turn will allow Sunstock to clean up its books, seek more favorable and attractive investments, and potentially uplist to the OTCQB.

Mr. Chang concluded "We are very excited to start this next chapter of growth for our company. We were unaware of the toxicity of some of the investments we took in, however moving forward we are committed to fixing our prior mistakes and it will start with bringing Mr. Basile on board to assist us through this process in making us an attractive investment for shareholders moving forward. We look forward to keeping our shareholders apprised of our progress with further press releases and filings in the coming weeks and months."
