Glowpoint, Inc. Announces Closing of Second Tranche of its $3.75 Million Financing
DENVER, CO, December 19, 2019 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Glowpoint, Inc. (NYSE American: GLOW) (“Glowpoint” or the “Company”), a provider, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Oblong Industries, Inc., of innovative technologies that drive the next generation of visual and data collaboration, announced today that it has closed the second tranche of its previously announced private placement of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series E Financing”) for approximately $1.24 million in gross proceeds.
“The successful completion of our Series E Financing on December 18th at a significant premium relative to the market price demonstrates continued investor confidence regarding the substantial market opportunity the company has before it,” said Peter Holst, Chairman and CEO of Glowpoint.
- The Series E Convertible Preferred Stock issued in the second tranche of Glowpoint’s $3.75 million Series E Financing is automatically convertible into an aggregate of approximately 435,090 shares of Glowpoint’s common stock at a price of $2.85 per share of common stock upon receipt of Glowpoint stockholder approval and approval of the NYSE American for the continued listing of the combined company following such conversion.
- Following the completion of the Series E Financing, Glowpoint has approximately 24.1 million shares of fully diluted common stock outstanding, pro forma for the conversion of the Series D Preferred Stock issued by Glowpoint in its acquisition of Oblong Industries, Inc. and conversion of the Series E Preferred Stock issued by Glowpoint in the Series E Financing.
- The Series E investors invested a total of $3.75 million, which converts into 1,315,790 shares of common stock at $2.85 per share, reflecting an implied equity valuation of approximately $69 million (based upon the $3.75 million investment for 5.45% ownership of the 24.1 million shares of pro forma common stock outstanding referenced above, which assumes the conversion of all of Glowpoint’s issued and outstanding convertible securities).
This Series E round was led by Foundry Group which, following the completion of the Series E round, will own approximately 31% of the Company on a fully diluted as-converted basis.
