Harris & Harris Group Portfolio Company HZO Raises $20 Million in Growth Financing

New York, NY | Posted on July 1st, 2014

Doug Jamison, CEO of Harris & Harris Group, said, "We are pleased to be participating in HZO's Series II financing and to be investing beside a great group of new financial and strategic investors. This oversubscribed financing is further evidence of Harris & Harris Group's ability to identify and cultivate early stage companies developing technology with large market potential."

HZO's proprietary liquid and corrosion protection technology is proven to protect electronic devices from short-term submersion in liquid, the most common accidental water exposure event. Today, the company protects everything from one of the world's premier tablets to one of the best-selling fitness trackers. In addition to water, the technology repels oils, synthetic fluids, many hazardous materials, dust and dirt, and can be applied to almost any surface to provide protection against water, weather, and corrosion, rendering the total market opportunity virtually endless.

Michael Bartholomeusz, CEO of HZO, said, "We are grateful for the ongoing support from the Harris & Harris Group team, who were among the first to see our potential and participate in the first institutional investment in HZO in 2011. Since that time, we have used our financing to develop technologies that integrate into our partners' manufacturing lines, so that it can be applied to thousands of parts per day, supporting large, high throughput production environments. With the support of Harris & Harris Group and our diversified Series II investors, we can execute on our growth plan and continue to build value in our company."

Harris & Harris Group will continue to have a representative on the HZO board of directors. Subsequent to the closing of the Series II financing, Harris & Harris Group will have an approximately 15 percent ownership stake.
