The capital is expected to be used primarily to expand operations at Arrowhead's majority-owned subsidiary, Unidym, and to make new investments in nanotechnology ventures. Unidym recently merged with Carbon Nanotechnologies, Inc., a world leader in carbon nanotube manufacturing.
"Since our original investment last year, Arrowhead has made demonstrable progress in each of their businesses," stated Alexander Klabin at York Capital Management. "We are pleased to continue to support their growth by participating in this private offering."
"Global Crown Capital has shown commitment to nurturing companies in the expanding field of nanotechnology and brought an institution of exceptional caliber to this deal," said R. Bruce Stewart, Arrowhead's chairman. "Arrowhead is well capitalized to continue to implement its current business plan."
Under the terms of the agreements, the investors will purchase 2,849,446 newly-issued shares of restricted common stock at $5.78 per share. Additionally, the investors will receive, in the aggregate, warrants to purchase an additional 712,362 shares of restricted common stock at an exercise price of $7.06 per share. The closing of the private financing is scheduled to occur early next week, resulting in aggregate gross proceeds to Arrowhead of approximately $16.5 million. The Company has agreed to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission covering the resale of the shares of common stock issued in the private placement and the shares of common stock issued upon exercise of the warrants.
