MIAMI, June 6, 2018 – InfoSonics Corporation (“InfoSonics” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: IFON) today announced that it has closed a public offering of securities to new and existing investors wherein it raised aggregate proceeds of approximately $3.7 million. The Company sold approximately 1,183,000 units at an offering price of $3.14 per unit. Each unit was comprised of (i) one share of common stock or 0% Series A Preferred stock of the Company and (ii) and a warrant to purchase one share of common stock of the Company with an exercise price of $3.02 per share. The warrants are exercisable beginning six months after issuance and expire three years from the date of issuance. Each share of preferred stock is convertible into common stock on a one-for-one basis.
The offer and sale of the shares of common stock and shares underlying the convertible preferred stock were offered pursuant to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-204469), which was declared effective by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on June 5, 2015. The convertible preferred stock, the warrants and shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants were offered in a concurrent private placement pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of Section 5 of the Securities Act contained in Section 4(a)(2) thereof and Regulation D promulgated thereunder.
Commenting on the fundraising, Mauricio Diaz, Chief Executive Officer of InfoSonics stated: “We intend to use the proceeds from this offering to fund the growth of our OneClick
retail stores, primarily for inventory and other working capital. After our merger with Cooltech Holdings Corp. on March 12, 2018, we are now working to optimize inventory levels at our existing stores to increase sales and profitability. We currently operate 3 stores in Miami, Florida, with a 4
store under construction in Orlando and plans for expansion into other Florida markets. In Argentina we currently operate 6 stores, including our newest store opened in Buenos Aires, with plans to open 7 new stores across Argentina in the next year.”
Commenting further, Diaz added: “Apple
has announced a focus on expansion in Latin America, and we are working with Apple
to be an integral part of that expansion. In addition, upon Apple
’s approval, we hope to expand into other U.S. markets, as well as into Canada in the next year. We are working now to deleverage our balance sheet to position ourselves for growth both organically and through acquisition, with a focus on our longer-term goal to become the largest authorized reseller of Apple
products and services in the Americas.”
