NEW YORK, June 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX) ("Ideanomics" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the second-stage of debt conversion, with the noteholders of each of the senior secured convertible debentures, and subordinated secured convertible debentures originally issued by the company during 2019, representing approximately USD 10.6 Million owed to two NY-area funds, ID Venturas and YA II PN. This comes on the back of last week's announcement that the Company's Chairman and Vice-Chairman had each converted their debt as part of the Company's plans to clean up its balance sheet and reduce interest payments as it gears up for growth. The effect of this has pushed out the average maturity on remaining debt until mid-2021.
As part of its growth plans, Ideanomics, MEG, and Treeletrik are currently expanding their management teams to take advantage of the anticipated growth. Additionally, the company is finalizing plans for a 10b5-1 program, which will allow management to enter the market to purchase the company's stock at pre-determined intervals and avoid concerns related to the possession of material non-public information. 10b5-1 plans allow executives to notify the market ahead of time about intentions to conduct purchase and sale activities and in a regulatory compliant way with which to conduct such transactions with full transparency to the market.
