PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Digital Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: GDSI), a company that is positioning itself as a leader in providing cyber arms manufacturing and complementary security and technology solutions, today issued a shareholder advisory explaining that the estate of one of the Company's major investors and shareholders has liquidated several million shares of GDSI stock over the past several months causing downward pressure on the Company's stock price. The Company believes the worst of that downward pressure is now over.
"We were deeply saddened by the passing last December of one of our earliest investors and largest shareholders," said Richard J. Sullivan, GDSI's President and CEO. "This shareholder loaned $750,000 to help launch GDSI and he was so supportive of our growth strategy that he later converted that loan into a large equity stake. We want to express our deepest sympathy to his loved ones and we're pleased their financial goals and needs have been addressed during this difficult time. We feel we have an obligation to inform our shareholders about the reasons behind this unusually large number of shares on the market over the past several months and we're confident the share price will recover in due course as we continue to pursue our growth strategy. With that in mind, we expect to report to shareholders regarding the outlook for 2015 in the very near future."
