CIC Closes Funding Round Transaction to Add Over $2 Million in Cash and to Create a New $4.5 Million Class of Preferred Stock
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Communication Intelligence Corporation ("CIC" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CICI), a leading supplier of electronic signature solutions and the recognized leader in biometric signature verification, announced today that it has closed a new round of funding for working capital with a number of existing and new investors.
Pursuant to the closing, investors subscribed to provide CIC with approximately $2.2 million in cash, one-half of which was delivered on Friday, September 14, 2012, in exchange for unsecured promissory notes, and the remaining one-half is scheduled to be delivered in exchange for Series D-2 Preferred Stock following receipt of requisite stockholder approval and satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Series D-2 Preferred Stock will be convertible into shares of common stock at a price of $0.05 per share.
Upon issuance of the Series D-2 Preferred stock, all outstanding CIC unsecured promissory notes will automatically convert into Series D-1 and D-2 Preferred Stock, creating a combined pool of approximately $4.5 million in Series D Preferred Stock that will be senior to all other classes of preferred stock.
"We elected to postpone until now our Series D equity round in an effort to limit dilution," stated Philip Sassower, CIC's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe we have succeeded in this effort as, on average, the Series D will have a conversion price of $0.0435 per share, which is almost twice the Series C conversion price of $0.0225. Also, the Series D will have only 12% warrant coverage in the aggregate, as compared to 100% warrant coverage issued with the Series C. We believe the improvement in financing terms is a strong reflection of the Company's positive traction in the market and of our investor group's ongoing commitment to support CIC."
"Assuming no significant changes in our revenue run rate and operating expenses, this round of funding is expected to sustain CIC through the middle of 2013," stated William Keiper, CIC's President and Chief Operating Officer. "It provides the support required to drive ongoing integrations of our high security electronic and biometric signature solutions with additional partners and clients and to add to our transaction-based and recurring revenue."
Additional information on this funding round will be available in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K that CIC expects to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 20, 2012, and will be available at www.sec.gov.
