Stocks in this article: PRXG

LOMBARD, Ill., Jan. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pernix Group, Inc. (OTCQB:PRXG) today announced that it has significantly strengthened its balance sheet through the issuance of $5 million of new Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock and the repayment of approximately $2.3 million of debt. As a result of this recapitalization, the Company has additional liquidity to support its growth initiatives and has no debt outstanding.

The preferred stock was issued to Pernix Group's two largest shareholders, with Ernil Continental, S.A., BVI purchasing 550,000 shares, and Halbarad Group, Ltd., BVI purchasing 450,000 shares. The shares were sold at $5.00 per share, with each share convertible into 1.43 shares of Pernix Group common stock, for an effective conversion price of $3.50 per share. The stated dividend rate is 8.0% per annum, payable quarterly.

"This recapitalization provides a solid capital foundation for Pernix Group, enhancing our ability to pursue and execute our near-term growth initiatives, including expanding our power generation business both domestically and overseas, forming new joint ventures, and completing potential acquisitions in both operating segments of our Company," commented Nidal Z. Zayed, President and CEO of Pernix Group. "We have developed a strong pipeline of new business opportunities, and we look forward to consummating one or more of these highly strategic transactions this year."

The Company filed Forms 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 23, 2013, and January 3, 2014 in connection with the issuance of the preferred stock.
