NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 1847 Holdings LLC (“1847” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: EFSH), a unique holding company that combines the attractive attributes of owning private, lower-middle market businesses with the liquidity and transparency of a publicly traded company, today announced that it has successfully restructured all of its Promissory Notes, with two institutional investors, totaling approximately $1.75 million outstanding. Based on the agreements with the investors, the Promissory Notes are no longer convertible to equity, as long as they are repaid by the Company over a 12 month amortization schedule.
Mr. Ellery W. Roberts, CEO of 1847, commented, “Restructuring these notes is an important milestone and is designed to protect the interests of shareholders by minimizing equity dilution. As I have stated on multiple occasions, we had a short term cash need driven by the rapid growth of our portfolio companies. However, with the cash flow now being generated as a result of these investments, we are in a much stronger financial position. In turn, this has allowed us to negotiate more favorable terms, both with our existing lenders, as well as potential future lenders, as we seek to appropriately leverage debt to support our accretive M&A strategy. To be clear, we do not believe we have any near-term need for equity funding. Given our growth and improving cash flow, we believe we are in a strong position to maximize returns for shareholders going forward.”
Additional details on the restructuring of the Promissory Notes will be available upon the filing of a Current Report on Form 8-K, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available on the Company’s website once filed.
About 1847 Holdings LLC
1847 Holdings LLC (NYSE American: EFSH), a publicly traded diversified acquisition holding company, was founded by Ellery W. Roberts, a former partner of Parallel Investment Partners, Saunders Karp & Megrue, and Principal of Lazard Freres Strategic Realty Investors. 1847 Holdings’ investment thesis is that capital market inefficiencies have left the founders and/or stakeholders of many small business enterprises or lower-middle market businesses with limited exit options despite the intrinsic value of their business. Given this dynamic, 1847 Holdings can consistently acquire businesses it views as “solid” for reasonable multiples of cash flow and then deploy resources to strengthen the infrastructure and systems of those businesses in order to improve operations. These improvements may lead to a sale or IPO of an operating subsidiary at higher valuations than the purchase price and/or alternatively, an operating subsidiary may be held in perpetuity and contribute to 1847 Holdings’ ability to pay regular and special dividends to shareholders.
