Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. Announces Second and Third Closings of Public Offering of Common Stock and Pre-Funded Warrants at $0.14 Per Share

THORNTON, Colo., April 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (“Ascent Solar” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ASTI), a U.S. innovator in the design and manufacturing of featherweight, flexible thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solutions, today announced the second and third closings under its previously announced “best efforts” public offering, at a per share offering price of $0.14. 2,550,000 shares of common stock and 11,735,714 Pre-Funded Warrants, representing gross proceeds of $2 million before deducting offering expenses, were sold in the final closing. The Pre-Funded Warrants are immediately exercisable at a price of $0.0001 per share of common stock and only expire when such prefunded warrants are fully exercised. The Company previously announced an initial closing under the offering that represented gross proceeds of $3.09 million before deducting offering expenses in gross proceeds. Aggregate gross proceeds from the offering totaled $5.09 million before deducting offering expenses.

The net proceeds from of the second and third closings of this offering (i) were utilized to pay $1.8 million to purchase and cancel the remaining 2,798,116 warrants with a current exercise price of $1.76 per share that were issued with our secured notes issued in December 2022, and (ii) the balance will be used for general and administration expenses and other general corporate purposes.

As a result of the closings of the public offering, the Company was able to repurchase and cancel a total of 5,596,232 warrants with an exercise price of $1.76 per share that were issued with our secured notes issued in December 2022. The repurchase of the warrants eliminated a substantial potential future issuance of common stock at a substantially reduced price. These warrants would have been adjusted in accordance with their terms to provide for the purchase of 70,554,495 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.14, if they had not been repurchased by the Company.

The Company believes that the repurchase of these warrants, and the resulting elimination of potential future ratchet adjustments of these warrants, will bring more certainty to the Company’s capital structure and will assist the Company in raising additional capital in the future.

Dawson James Securities, Inc. acted as the exclusive placement agent for the offering.

Carroll Legal, LLC, Denver, CO, represented the Company in connection with the offering, and ArentFox Schiff LLP, Washington, DC, represented the placement agent.
