Spare Backup Buys Back 1 Million Shares From Robinson Reed at $1.25 per Share and Issues 2 Million Warrants Exercisable at $1.25

PALM DESERT, Calif., March 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spare Backup, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: SPBU) announced today that it has bought back 1 million shares of common stock from Robinson Reed at $1.25 per share. The purchase was made pursuant to a put option exercised by Robinson Reed whereby Spare had the option of repurchasing the stock or issuing $1 million worth of shares at $0.30. Additionally, Spare issued 2 million warrants to purchase its common stock at $1.25 to DSG as part of their previously announced marketing and sales agreement.

Commenting on the events, Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup stated, "We have made significant strides in positioning our company for growth in the coming years and this repurchase of the Robinson Reed stock represents the removal of a significant equity liability to the shareholders of our company. Robinson Reed played a valuable role in providing us with capital at an early stage of our development and we are grateful for that support. We are also excited to provide DSG with the opportunity to become an equity stakeholder in Spare at $1.25 as we believe they will be a key driver in future growth as a company."

The transaction with Robinson Reed eliminates a substantial portion of Spare's potential liability on its balance sheet and reduces its outstanding shares by 1 million. The warrants issued to DSG are exercisable at $1.25 for a period of 5 years.
