Westminster, CA – August 4, 2020 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), developer of sustainable technologies and a full-service environmental engineering company, announced today that company-wide sales in July had more than doubled its historical monthly average. Led by subsidiary Clyra Medical’s introduction of Clyraguard Personal Protection Spray, an FDA registered disinfectant for PPE such as facemasks. With first product deliveries to customers in late July, 2020, production ramping up, and distribution channels forming, management is excited about the product’s future prospects.
Additionally, BioLargo announced that since December 31, 2019, it had converted more than $3,100,000 principal amount of debt to equity, and that an additional $414,000 would convert to equity over the next 45 days, bringing the total to approximately $3,550,000 in debt conversion to equity. The Company has also reached agreement with holders of approximately $550,000 of debt due in August, 2020, to extend by one-year the maturity dates, and convert a portion of principal into equity. (See Form 8-K filed August 4, 2020.)
The remaining note obligations of BioLargo after these conversions will be approximately $2,213,000: (i) $1,007,000 owed by Clyra Medical to Scion Solutions, which is paid out of stock sales and revenues; (ii) $600,000 due August 9, 2021, which may be converted at the holder’s option; (iii) $406,000 due August 12, 2021, which may be converted at the holders’ option; (iv) $100,000 due April 20, 2021, which BioLargo intends to convert to equity at maturity; and (v) $100,000 due on investor demand.
Dennis P. Calvert, BioLargo’s President & CEO commented, “Our team at Clyra Medical developed Clyraguard in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are proud that they could develop the product, secure FDA registration, secure raw materials, source FDA compliant manufacturing, and deliver product to customers in only a matter of months. We are proud of our team and this product that we believe is vital to help front line workers, and all of us, during these turbulent times. I am personally excited about the prospects of this product, and look forward to reporting more information in our SEC filings.”
Calvert added, “The continued balance sheet improvements are dramatic. We have been diligent to move away from convertible debt instruments in favor of equity-based transactions for new capital, and have not taken in any new convertible debt since September of 2019, so as to eliminate the extremely expensive non-cash interest expense. We plan to continue to this focus into the future. As we are emerging from the height of the COVID-19 crisis, we are glad to see capital projects being restarted which bodes well for ONM Environmental, BioLargo Engineering and BioLargo Water. We were recently notified of an award of public funding to support our first commercial installation of our AOS system and BioLargo Engineering is preparing for commercial trials for our PFAS solution (the BioLargo AEC) in the coming months.
We will continue to update the information available as more business develops and sales continue to rise.”
