Citadel EFT, Inc. (CDFT), CEO Gary DeRoos Agrees to retire 40,000,000 Convertible C Preferred Shares and opens discussion on Retiring significant amounts of Issued Capital.

OCEANSIDE, CA, JAN 23, 2013 -- Citadel EFT, Inc's. (OTCQB: CDFT) CEO Gary DeRoos is pleased to announce that he has retired the 40,000,000 Convertible C Preferred Shares that he issued to himself after the asset purchase from Art to Go. He is also considering retiring a significant portion on the issued capital of the common stock in order to bring the market capitalization in line with the audited equity of the company. The Issued Capital is at present 233,000,000 and Mr DeRoos owns approximately 168,000,000 of the shares. Drastically lowering the number of issued shares in the company, would signal to the market that the company is serious about increasing its shareholder value. It also signals to our stock holders that we are serious in building shareholder equity as well. 

Gary DeRoos, CEO, of Citadel EFT, further states, " I made a mistake in issuing those securities to myself, I did not realize that issuing more preferred securities could affect the overall evaluation of the company, as these securities don't increase the issued capital of the company at present. But I now realize it can affect the audited equity of the company and possibly the price of the common stock.  I also believe that the amount of issued shares that I have is too much, I have Series B Preferred stock which affords me everything I need. I have issued myself the majority of the common shares and I really see it now as a impediment to building shareholder value. So in keeping with increasing the value, I will be sitting down with our professional consultants and accountants over the next weeks to the possibility of retiring much more of the issued capital of the company. We will figure out that number, after the audit is released and after careful discussion with the majority stock holders. The priority moving forward is to up list to the American Stock Exchange, and we need to have a minimum of $4,000,000 in net stock holders equity, a 50,000,000 market cap and a $2.00 price per share. We believe with the consistent growth of Citadel EFT's business operations, it's commitment to purchasing value and enhancing the balance sheet as we did with asset purchases we have made, we are on our way, but our capital structure needs to be overhauled to reflect our desire to meet AMEX standards. So we need to lower the issued capital, and refrain from issuing any securities, where the value to the stock holder, officers and directors is not already substantiated and proven."
