Aug 14, 2015, 17:52 ET from xG Technology, Inc.

SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Technology, Inc. ("xG" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a developer of wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Key Recent Accomplishments

  • Received order for approximately $309,000 for xMax mobile broadband wireless equipment and services which will be integrated into a dedicated Telemedicine/Telehealth Systems Network Infrastructure. The initial network—Phase 1—will be built out in St. George's, the capital of Grenada, with a Network Operations Center (NOC) capable of supporting regional expansion and growth throughput CARICOM, the community of 15 nations and dependencies located in the Caribbean.
  • Received an order for approximately $100,000 in xMax mobile broadband wireless equipment and services and successfully installed and completed initial deployment of an xMax broadband network in Escazu, Costa Rica from Itellum, LLC, representing the first stage of xMax network deployments that are expected to cover additional areas of Costa Rica, with plans for expansion into other Latin American locations. Subsequently received a follow-on order for approximately $58,000 in xMax mobile broadband wireless equipment and services from Itellum, LLC to further expand the installed footprint.
  • Completed successful initial testing of DirectView's body-worn camera integrated with the xMax private mobile broadband technology
  • Successfully demonstrated interference mitigation capabilities against sustained electronic attacks (jamming) at the U.S. Special Operations Command's ("USSOCOM") Technical Experimentation Event 15-3 conducted June 14-18 at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center ("MUTC") in Indiana.
  • Made the xMax private wireless broadband system FirstNet-ready, having demonstrated interoperability with the commercial LTE cellular network. FirstNet is the planned U.S. nationwide broadband high-speed network that will be reserved for use by the first responder community, and having a solution which is LTE-capable is a key requirement.
  • Entered into a Strategic Technology Alliance Agreement with Radio IP Software, Inc. to co-market each other's respective solutions. xG and Radio IP will make available integrated products that include xMax private mobile broadband network technology and Radio IP's mobile virtual private network (MVPN) solution.

Events Subsequent to Quarter-End:

  • Today, xG separately announced the pricing of a public offering of 2,550,000 Class A Units, 2,450,000 Class B Units, 2,550,000 Series C Warrants, and 4,950,000 Series D Warrants. The Company expects to receive approximately $5,000,000 in gross proceeds, before underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses payable by the Company. xG intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including working capital, product development, partial reduction of liabilities, marketing activities, expanding its internal sales organization and further developing sales channels, funding the set-up of contract manufacturing production lines and other capital expenditures.
  • Effected a 1-for-10 reverse split of its common stock on Friday, July 17, 2015, for trading on July 20, 2015 on a post-split basis.

George Schmitt, CEO and Chairman of the Board of xG Technology, said, "In second quarter 2015, xG not only gained further traction in strategic marketing and uptake by potential customers, we more than doubled last second quarter's revenue level and reduced our operating loss. Today, we completed an equity financing that, while dilutive, fuels our growth efforts at a critical moment in our corporate development. We remain focused on leveraging our competitive positioning and on further monetizing our large market opportunity."

Review of Results

Total second quarter 2015 revenues were $374,000 compared to $163,000 revenue in the second quarter of 2014.
