Abstract:
Nanophase Technologies (Nasdaq: NANX), a technology leader in nanomaterials and advanced nanoengineered products, announced placement of 1,900,000 shares of common stock from the Company's SEC Form S-3 filed on May 22, 2007, at a purchase price of $5.92 per share based on the ten-day volume-weighted average price of the common stock, discounted 4%, for the period ending June 28, 2007. The placement resulted in proceeds of approximately $10.6 million, net of offering expenses and a 5% placement agency fee.

Nanophase Places 1,900,000 Shares

ROMEOVILLE, IL | Posted on July 2nd, 2007

In the near future, Nanophase plans to withdraw the remainder of the 2
million shares registered in the Form S-3, or 100,000 shares, and close the
shelf registration. Nanophase plans to use the proceeds primarily to
acquire and install equipment and expand the Company's Romeoville facility
to support anticipated increases in nanomaterial product demand, as well as
for general corporate purposes.

"We believe that additional equipment and facilities are a natural
result of increasing nanomaterial product demand and Company growth,"
stated Joseph Cross, Nanophase's President and CEO. "In 2000, as we
developed a new business direction for Nanophase, we recognized that as
nanomaterial market demand grew and applications matured, the preferred
customer format for incorporation of nanomaterials into processes or
products would be surface engineered, or coated, nanoparticles and/or
dispersions of nanoparticles in water or solvents. We understood that we
could not be successful simply providing customers with nanomaterials in
powder form."

"Based on this vision, we created a novel delivery platform, with both
the manufacturing technologies and equipment, over the ensuing 3-4 years.
This integrated platform, along with its patented and proprietary equipment
and processes, has given Nanophase what we believe is a unique ability to
deliver high-performing nanoengineered products that are tailored to
provide specific applicational properties and are easy for the customer to
incorporate into their own products. Nanophase's integrated nanomaterials
platform is driving our business model and market success. While we can
accommodate volume growth in the near future, as we plan Company growth
over the next 3-4 years, additional facilities and equipment appear to be
vital to support anticipated future increased volume and products."

"While details of the plan are still evolving, the entire staged plan
is expected to require 18-24 months for full completion and necessary
equipment to be production ready for potential customer demand and product
delivery. We believe it is critical to anticipate demand by creating
adequate capacity to handle additional manufacturing growth and also to
respond to our customers' needs for occasional burst manufacturing and
inventory capability. As anticipated customer demand grows, Nanophase needs
to be in the position to deliver."

Following this placement, the Company has 20,980,495 million shares of
stock outstanding.
