The first payment of $100,000 has been paid by the Oasis, which will consolidate all existing convertible promissory notes, including all interest and other payments due thereon with PowerUp Lending. The initial Notes were originally issued in April, May and December of 2019, and upon full completion the Agreement with Oasis Capital, PowerUp Lending will no longer be a creditor of the company with all convertible debt held by PowerUp being acquired by Oasis.

The outstanding amounts due under the Company’s convertible note obligations were convertible into common stock of Agritek Holdings, Inc. at a specified discount. The Oasis purchase of all of its convertible debt obligations with PowerUp means there are no longer any convertible debt instruments held in the Company which are eligible to convert into common stock of Agritek Holdings, except by Oasis, thus limiting the potential influx of deeply discounted shares into the market.

“Agritek Holdings Inc. is pleased to have our institutional investor and banking arm, Oasis, acquire PowerUp’s convertible debt. Of course we do appreciate PowerUp and their team, and are very thankful for their financial assistance over the last year and for providing the Company access to working capital to allow us to get through our short-term liquidity issues,” stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO of Agritek Holdings Inc. “Now that we have completed our acquisition of Full Spectrum Biosciences, and revenues increase, as the newly appointed CEO, I will remain focused on our plan to build shareholder value through further the elimination of convertible debt and the implementation of a more favorable corporate financing, in an effort to restore the Company’s stock price back to more attractive levels,” Friedman added.

Additionally, the Company has executed an agreement with Oasis to register a $5,000,000 equity facility on behalf of the Company to secure a long-term equity commitment.  The Company will seek to use this commitment to discontinue its reliance on convertible debentures, as a far more favorable corporate financing for the Company and its shareholders.
