RGS Energy Completes $3.3 Million Registered Offering of Common Stock and Warrants

DENVER, April 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (RGSE), the exclusive worldwide manufacturer of the visually stunning POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingle System, has completed the previously announced $3.3 million registered offering of (A) 15,938,280 “Primary Units,” each consisting of one share of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001, or “Common Stock,” and a Series R Warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock, and (B) 1,430,141 “Alternative Units,” each consisting of one prepaid Series S Warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock and a Series R Warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock. The investors paid $0.19 for each Primary Unit and $0.18 for each Alternative Unit at closing, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $3.3 million.

“You may recall that we mentioned during the third quarter conference call that because we started our POWERHOUSE™ business from scratch, the first few quarters would be bumpy until we could achieve an equilibrium between our demand and supply,” said Dennis Lacey, RGS Energy’s CEO. “Our commercial launch coincided with the historically slow season for solar system sales in the first quarter, so it has been challenging. However, we have over 250 local roofers in our system, recently won ‘Best Energy Efficient Product’ award for POWERHOUSE™ at NAHB IBS, and expect to do better as we enter the historically busy season for solar system sales. Our less than expected start to 2019 made it necessary for us to raise additional capital. We appreciate the support of our shareholders.”

The Series R Warrants are exercisable immediately after issuance at an exercise price of $0.20 per share and for a period of five years thereafter. The Series S Warrants are exercisable immediately after issuance and for a period of five years thereafter at an exercise price of $0.19 per share, of which $0.18 per share was paid at closing with $0.01 per share payable upon exercise of the Series S Warrant. The warrants will not be separately listed for trading. The terms of the transaction and the warrants are described in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by RGS Energy on April 2, 2019.

After RGS Energy pays the placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses, RGS Energy expects to receive net proceeds of approximately $2.9 million.

Dawson James Securities, Inc. served as exclusive placement agent in the offering.

The shares of Class A common stock, the Series R Warrants and the Series S Warrants were, and the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants will be, offered pursuant to a prospectus supplement and an accompanying prospectus filed as part of an effective shelf registration statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The prospectus supplement relating to the offering was filed with the SEC on April 2, 2019 and is available on www.sec.gov.
