SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–November 12, 2013–
5BARz International Inc. (OTCBB: BARZ) (Berlin: O5B), a technology leader in the cellular network extender industry, announced today the completion of a private placement, resulting in net proceeds of $2,610,000. The Company issued 26,100,000 units, at a price of $0.10 per unit, with each unit comprised of one share of the common stock of the issuer and one share purchase warrant to acquire a second common share at a price of $0.30. The warrant is exercisable for a period of two years.
After more than five years of development, and approximately $13 million of capital invested, the Company’s commercialized technology is being recognized as a solution to improve cellular connectivity. This recognition is facilitating a broad expansion of the Company’s opportunities in terms of market integration as well as attracting the capital resources necessary to continue executing the Company’s business strategy.
“This capital injection allows us to accelerate the completion and delivery of our second-generation device that is being designed to work on the frequency of a major global network carrier, with over 150 million mobile subscribers. We believe that this product will ultimately be adopted by network carriers around the world as the preferred solution in the industry. While our first-generation device, the Road Warrior, was a technology breakthrough in its own right and winner of a prestigious design and engineering award at the 2010 CES, our second-generation device will have features never seen before in our industry. We look forward to delivering this second-generation device for testing and qualification by our partners at the beginning of the new year,” said Daniel Bland, CEO of 5BARz.
There is an increasing need in the market for cellular network extenders as consumers clamor for improved cellular connectivity. 5BARz is uniquely positioned to lead this path, with a patented technology that incorporates the Network Protection Standard Requirements recommended in the recent FCC ruling, making the Company’s product both user and network friendly.
