American Premium Water CEO Ryan Fishoff Announces 80% Debt Reduction, Balance Sheet Improvements
PLAYA VISTA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Following his recent appointment as CEO of American Premium Water Corporation (OTC:HIPH), the producer of Lalpina Hydrogen Water and Gents luxury accessories, Ryan Fishoff has announced that the company has executed one of his strategic goals by strengthening the balance sheet through a significant debt reduction.
“I‘m very happy to report that HIPH has successfully reduced its derivative and convertible debt obligations by over 80%. This demonstrates our commitment to execute our long-term strategy to increase shareholder value. More details will be available in our Q3 filings, which will be released soon,” commented the HIPH CEO.
The debt reduction is the first part of a multi-point growth plan Fishoff has outlined for HIPH, which includes raising capital, investment and expansion of the LALPINA and Gents brands, strategic partnerships and M&A.
Added HIPH founder Alfred Culbreth, “The reduction is really key, as it will now allow us to focus on the next phase of the plan and stay on track to release LALPINA CBD Hydrogen Water in first half of 2018,” he added.
“Now that we’ve dramatically reduced our debt,” explained Fishoff, “we can shift the focus to other aspects of our growth strategy that will increase long term shareholder value. We are in discussions with a number of parties for strategic partnerships that will help both brands grow. I am always keeping an ear open for M&A opportunities. I have a few in mind, and am hoping to complete an acquisition or two over the next few quarters.”
Launched in November 2012, The New York-based Gents is a producer of luxury hats and other fine accessories and apparel. Their line is carried in over 200 retail outlets internationally, including Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.
