DAVIE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/07/14 -- Vapor Group, Inc., formerly AvWorks Aviation Corp. (OTCQB: SPLI), (the "Company", "AvWorks", or "Vapor Group"), announced today that its Board of Directors, majority shareholder, Dror Svorai, and shareholders of Vapor Group, Inc. signing the January 22, 2014, "Agreement of Merger and Plan of Reorganization", (the "Merger Agreement"), (the "Vapor Group Shareholders"), had approved the following adjustments to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement as well as changes to the Company's capital stock structure, all of which will be filed within the next five (5) business days according to State and federal law and regulation:
1. The Company shall file an Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation whereby any and all existing shares of its voting Series A Preferred Stock shall no longer be convertible, in whole or in part, into shares of common stock of the Company at any time ("Common Stock"). To date, no such shares of Series A Preferred Stock have not been converted.
2. The Company shall file an Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation whereby it shall create a new class of Preferred Stock, "Series B", which shall be convertible 100:1 into shares of its Common Stock, and which shall be issued in lieu of the published, pending issuance of the consideration of 750,000,000 shares of Common Stock, post 30:1 reverse split, issuable under the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement to the Vapor Group Shareholders.
3. The quantity of shares of Series B issuable in connection with the Merger Agreement shall be calculated on the basis that the 750,000,000 shares of Common Stock issuable above shall be divided by the convertibility feature of the Series B, or 100:1, such that only 7,500,000 shares of Series B would be the future issuance and consideration under the Merger Agreement.
4. The 7,500,000 shares of Series B issued in connection with the Agreement shall remain unissued until after the announced 30:1 reverse split of the Company's Common Stock, at which time such issuance will be further reduced 30:1 (similar to the effect of the reverse split), to 250,000 shares of Series B as consideration for the Merger Agreement which will be the final shares issued to the Vapor Group Shareholders as consideration under the Merger Agreement.
5. That any and all shares of Series B shall be restricted from any conversion into shares of Common Stock by any holder thereof for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of their issuance.
Dror Svorai, President and CEO, stated, "Personally, I am excited by these changes and what they mean for our shareholders. These changes should resolve concerns about future dilution caused by our present share structure, concerns about the shares to be issued under the Merger Agreement, and concerns that our preferred stock shareholders can convert to common for their short-term benefit. These actions are meant to signal to the market that we will increase our market cap over time -- not by the issuance of more and more shares held by only a few -- but by increasing the value of each individual share of stock." He added, "Vapor Group is a proven, rapidly growing, dynamic company that we believe will drive up the value of its market cap through solid performance. We are committed to proving that to everyone."
