FRISCO, Texas, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Assured Pharmacy (Pink Sheets: APHY), a pharmacy service healthcare organization operating a chain of specialty pharmacies providing advanced prescription medication fulfillment solutions to sufferers of chronic pain, is pleased to announce that it has received $500,000 of debt financing from an existing shareholder which can be converted in whole or in part anytime over the 2 year term at the holder's option into a maximum of 500 shares of the Company's Series A Preferred Stock. Interest on the debt, which is payable in shares of the Company's Common Stock, accrues on the unconverted principal amount outstanding from time to time at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum and is payable to the holder on a quarterly basis and on the maturity date, which is July 20, 2012.
This financing is supporting the Company's ongoing business expansion and investment into solidifying its supply chain of prescription medications. "We believe that this investment from our existing shareholder validates their confidence in our business model and supports our corporate actions enacted over the past 18 months," stated Mr. Robert DelVecchio, Chief Executive Officer of Assured Pharmacy. "We are very pleased to have the support of this investment as we enter the next phase of our business model. As we lay the foundation for expanding our pharmacy footprint into new markets, improving our financial position with suppliers is critical and this financing furthers that requirement. We expect to provide further updates shortly and are pleased to have secured this financing arrangement in an economic cycle which proves difficult to secure funds on favorable terms."
