Pacific Gold Corp. Enters into Standstill Agreement on Convertible Notes

TORONTO, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pacific Gold Corp. (OTCBB: PCFG) announced today that it has reached an agreement with Yorkville Advisors (formerly Cornell Capital Partners) to adjust the repayment terms of the convertible notes originally issued in February 2007.

Yorkville Advisors has agreed that no installment payments on the notes will be made until January 15, 2009 unless the price of PCFG stock is above 1.5 cents ($0.015) per share for at least 8 of the 10 days prior to an installment payment being due.

The principal remaining on the original face value of the $2,440,000 in notes sold to Yorkville is now $267,000. The notes mature on February 26, 2009.

"By temporarily setting a floor price of the installment payments of the Yorkville note and with a reduction in the outstanding debt, we hope that investors will be able to more easily recognize the fair value of the Company stock." said Rob Landau, CEO.
