Esports Entertainment Group Announces Secured Note and Amendments to its Convertible Preferred Stock

St. Julian’s, Malta, March 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: GMBL) (OTC Pink: GMBLP) (OTC Pink: GMBLW) (OTC Pink: GMBLZ) (“Esports Entertainment”, “EEG”, or the “Company”), a leading, global iGaming company and business-to-business (B2B) esports content and solutions provider, today announced it has entered into a note purchase agreement, dated March 7, 2024, with the holder (the “Holder”) of its Series C Convertible Preferred Stock and Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, pursuant to which the Company issued the Holder a secured promissory note (the “Secured Note”) for approximately $1.42 million in cash and certain amendments to the terms of the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock and Series Convertible D Preferred Stock, repayable in 2 years with an interest rate of 10% per annum recorded in-kind by adding the amount of accrued interest to the outstanding principal balance of the Secured Note on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter.

The amendments to the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock and the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock Certificate of Designations include a six month standstill on certain conversions, limits to conversions thereafter, freeze on dividends for two years through the new maturity date of March 7, 2026, and an allowance for the Company to raise up to $10 million that could be used for other operational purposes and not for repayment of the preferred stock.

Alex Igelman, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group, stated, “I am also pleased to report that we have recently received an infusion of non-dilutive, non-convertible debt financing, which we feel is a strong validation of our underlying vision for the future of the Company. At the moment, we are firmly focused on continuing to reduce corporate expenses while simultaneously driving growth and profitability. The Secured Note provides us greater financial flexibility, as we continue to reduce costs, improve our balance sheet, enhance our cash flow, and execute on our growth initiatives within the iGaming, venue management and e-simulator markets. We also successfully restructured the existing preferred stock by implementing a six-month standstill on certain conversions and resale of shares of common stock in relation thereof, which we believe illustrates confidence in the management team and the long-term outlook for the business.”
