Effective as of April 10, 2017, Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. (“Odyssey”) issued 670,455 unregistered shares of common stock to Epsilon Acquisitions LLC (“Epsilon”) upon conversion of indebtedness evidenced by the Convertible Promissory Note that Odyssey Marine Enterprises, Ltd. (“OME”), a subsidiary of Odyssey, issued to Epsilon on March, 18 2016. The amount of indebtedness converted was $3,050,000, plus interest, and the conversion rate was $5.00 per share of common stock. As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K that Odyssey filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 26, 2017, conversion of the indebtedness required 75 days’ notice from Epsilon, and Epsilon delivered its conversion notice on January 25, 2017.

The conversion of indebtedness by Epsilon makes Epsilon one of the largest Odyssey stockholders and further aligns the interests of Odyssey and MINOSA
