CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE-- Nutra Pharma Corporation (OTC:NPHC), a biotechnology company developing drugs for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and HIV and that also markets the over-the-counter (OTC) pain drugs; Nyloxin® and Pet Pain-Away™, announced today that they are in the process of restructuring their Board of Directors as well as their corporate debt to pave the way for the next phase of growth.
“We are announcing the completion of a complicated restructuring of our existing convertible debt, which resulted in the consolidation of the remaining institutional debt into a single noteholder," stated Rik J Deitsch, Chairman and CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. “This is expected to limit the corporate dilution as well as provide further funds as needed,” he continued. “Additionally, we have filed the acceptance of the resignation of one of our Directors, Dan Oran. We are endeavoring to fill this Board vacancy with a strategic Director that will aid the Company in retail sales as well as in navigating the drug approval process for RPI-78M; our therapy for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Lastly, we will be filing a Form 14c shortly with the SEC to increase our authorized shares. This will allow us to fulfill our commitments to our noteholders as well as finalize legitimate, long-term and non-toxic financing to move the Company forward. The use of this financing includes retail marketing for our OTC products as well as clinical research for our drug products for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and viruses,” he concluded.
Nutra Pharma has recently announced the following: new patent applications to protect the Company’s intellectual property surrounding their development of nerve agent counter measures; new distributors in the US, Canada and Australia that are registering and marketing Nyloxin® and Pet Pain-Away™ in their respective territories; and updated websites for the products and the Company. The Company has also announced plans for the retail rollout of the OTC pain products for later this year in support of reducing the use of opiates and opioid drugs.
