The redemption of the preferred shares removes the Company's current liquidation preference obligation of $25.9 million, which entitled the preferred shareholders to payment of the preference amount before payment to the common stockholders.
The liquidation preference was scheduled to increase to $40.7 million at the time the preferred shares became mandatorily redeemable in 2016. The removal of this obligation results in an immediate benefit to common stockholders of approximately $7.0 million. The Company now has only common shares outstanding.
To complete the redemption, the Company received a $5.5 million strategic equity investment from a group of private investors, including a former Board member and the current Chairman of the Board. This investment, which consists of the sale of common stock at a price of $0.09 per share, together with the Company's cash and the short-term note, enabled the Company to repurchase all of the Series B convertible preferred stock at a significant discount to its current liquidation preference amount.
Lonnie Schnell, Talon's CEO stated, "The redemption of preferred shares and the successful equity raise that made it possible, are major achievements and important milestones for Talon International. The elimination of the preferred stock from our capital structure improves our risk profile, enhances our financial flexibility and removes a major impediment to creating value for common shareholders."
As a result of the equity raise, Talon's executive management team received shares of common stock upon settlement of previously issued restricted stock units, increasing management's ownership by approximately 4.8 million shares.
