• On September 11th, the company entered into debt settlement agreements with seven creditors to settle debt of $1,304,172.10 by way of convertible loans.

FACT CEO Jacqueline Danforth said, “It’s very encouraging that our key creditors have agreed to enter into long term debt arrangements with the company. This will eliminate a great deal of the short term debt from our balance sheet, allowing management to put together a funding proposal to raise the required capital to fund our future growth plans.”
The company seeks to raise up to $1 million in order to fund the final stage of development of several new product lines it hopes to launch in the spring of 2010.
