Aspen Aerogels Announces $22.5 Million Private Placement

Northborough, MA | Posted on May 18th, 2013

"This financing is expected to provide Aspen with sufficient funding to continue to grow our business to meet increasing demand for our aerogel blankets. We also remain laser focused on improving our profitability while investing for growth," said Don Young, President and CEO of Aspen Aerogels, Inc.

In conjunction with the recent financing, Aspen has decided not to pursue an initial public offering at this time. The company intends to withdraw its registration statement on Form S-1 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"We believe our recent financing provides Aspen with the financial flexibility to pursue a range of financing and strategic opportunities in the future," said Mr. Young.

Aspen Aerogels is a leading provider of industrial aerogel insulation, which delivers maximum thermal protection with minimal weight and thickness. Its flexible blanket form is up to five times thinner than traditional insulation products, saving space and total installed cost on piping, vessels, tanks and equipment. Aspen's insulation product line is used in industrial facilities worldwide on applications ranging from -460 degrees F (-270 degrees C) to 1200 degress F (650 degrees C) and in wall-systems for commercial and residential buildings.
