Harris & Harris Group Notes Carl Zeiss' Planned Acquisition of Xradia

New York, NY | Posted on June 13th, 2013

Harris & Harris Group is an investor in privately held Xradia. As of March 31, 2013, we valued our securities of Xradia at $13,140,763, and our cost basis in Xradia is $4,000,000. We currently expect to receive up to approximately $15 million in proceeds from the sale, including amounts to be held in escrow.

"We are excited to see Xradia's imaging solutions become part of Carl Zeiss' family of products. The synergies between the two companies are obvious. A disruptive 3D X-ray technology from Xradia in combination with the global outreach and operational excellence of Carl Zeiss will bring Xradia's imaging tools into customers' hands around the globe," said Alexei Andreev, Executive Vice President and Managing Director at Harris & Harris Group. "We congratulate the founders and the management of Xradia for the successful outcome of their endeavor and hard work."

Doug Jamison, CEO of Harris & Harris Group, added, "Harris & Harris Group led the first institutional round of financing of Xradia. Our involvement with the development of this transformative technology from an idea to a growing, commercial company has been exciting. This successful investment, following multiple liquidity events in recent years, is another example of the potential of our distinct investment model."
