IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DecisionPoint™ Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: DPSI), a leading provider and integrator of Enterprise Mobility, Wireless Applications and RFID solutions, announced that it has raised $3.83 million in gross proceeds from institutional and accredited investors through a private placement of 383,000 shares of 10 percent Series E convertible preferred stock, with a stated value of $10.00 per share. Each share of preferred stock may be converted into common stock at any time at the option of the holder.

After deducting the placement agent's commission, the company received net proceeds of approximately $3.5 million.
The proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.

About Taglich Brothers
Founded in 1991, Taglich Brothers, Inc. is a full service brokerage firm specializing in the microcap segment of the market for publicly traded securities. The firm has selected this unique niche for two reasons. First and foremost, the small cap market has historically outperformed the large cap market over the past 75 years. Second, this area of the market is virtually ignored by the larger institutions and other Wall Street firms because they cannot invest enough capital in each situation to justify the expense of investigating these companies.
