Nanophase Announces Plans for Rights Offering to Stockholders

Romeoville, IL | Posted on May 17th, 2012

The rights offering will be made through the distribution of non-transferable subscription rights to purchase their pro rata portion of 7,250,000 shares of the Company's common stock at a subscription price of $0.33 per share. The record date for the distribution of the rights and the dates for both the subscription period and the expiration of the rights offering will be included in the final prospectus.

The purpose of this rights offering is to raise equity capital in a cost-effective manner that gives Nanophase's stockholders the opportunity to participate. The net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.

The rights offering includes an over-subscription privilege which permits each rights holder that exercises its rights in full to purchase additional shares of common stock that remain unsubscribed at the expiration of the offering. This over-subscription privilege is subject to the availability and allocation of shares among holders exercising this over-subscription privilege, as further described in the rights offering documents.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. The securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. A copy of the prospectus forming a part of the registration statement may be obtained free of charge at the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov or by contacting Frank Cesario at (630) 771-6708. The rights will be issued to holders of the Company's common stock as of a record date, which has yet to be determined. We will provide notice of the record date in the future at such time as it is determined. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
