Santa Clara, California – January 18, 2017 – UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of Performance Engineered Films™ to the touchscreen and flexible electronics markets, today announced that it has entered into a financing agreement for $3 million of convertible, redeemable Preferred shares. The fixed conversion price of the Preferred shares is set at $1.50, subject to potential adjustments which primarily do not arise until after 90 days. The financing agreement also includes 2,500,000 warrants priced at $1.50 which will have a single price-only reset feature after six months which will reset the warrant price to 93% of the lowest conversion price during the six-month period but will only reset if the price is below $1.50. All of the Preferred shares must be fully converted or redeemed within twelve months from closing. UniPixel has the right to convert any portion of the Preferred shares to the investor by the issuance of common stock so long as the company’s stock price is at least $1.50, or, at any time, to redeem in cash equal to 125% of the financing. After the first 90 days, the investor will be permitted to convert the Preferred shares into shares of common stock at the investor’s choice, at a price equal to 93% of the common share value on the day preceding any conversion.
