Boca Raton, FL, Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Grom Social Enterprises, Inc.

Other material consideration provided to the noteholders included the issuance of an aggregate of 800,000 restricted shares of common stock and a change in the payment terms of the contingent Earnout under the agreement.
Darren Marks, Chairman and CEO, stated, “We appreciate the tremendous confidence shown by the noteholders in our management by extending the maturity date of their note until April 2, 2020.
