CAESAREA, Israel, Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO), a leading global digital health Company with mobile health and big data solutions, announced today that it has closed on concurrent private placement offerings with domestic and non-U.S. investors for the sale of shares of the Company's common stock and shares of the Company's newly designated Series B Convertible Preferred Stock in concurrent private placement offerings. Current shareholders accounted for 58% of the securities sold in the offerings. Investors in the offering included existing investors, as well as new investors including SC Fundamental Value Fund, L.P. and Pegasus Capital II, L.P.
As a part of these private placement transactions, which totals $5 million in the aggregate before expenses and placement agent fees, the Company issued 483,333 shares of common stock at a price per share of $1.80 and 2,307,654 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock at a price per share of $1.80. The Series B Preferred Stock is convertible into shares of the Company's common stock at a 1:1 ratio and provides for a 6% dividend payable upon the conversion of the preferred shares. The holders of the Series B Preferred Stock will not be entitled to convert such preferred stock into shares of the Company's common stock until the Company obtains stockholder approval for such issuance. The Company has agreed to file a registration statement covering the resale of the shares of common stock sold in the offering, the shares of common stock underlying the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and the shares of common stock issuable upon the payment of the dividend, within 60 days of closing.
The private placement was managed by the Company with the assistance of Aegis Capital Corp., which acted as the placement agent for a portion of the offerings.
Erez Raphael, Chairman and CEO of DarioHealth, commented, "We are very excited with our continued revenue growth trajectory and are confident that our recent Android clearance by the FDA will enable us to accelerate our growth. This additional capital, mainly from existing shareholders and a few long-term fundamental investors that have been monitoring our progress for a few quarters, gives us the extra runway to execute on our strategy to ramp users and reduce our cash burn through the end of 2018. We appreciate the continued support of our existing shareholders and the confidence and trust from our new shareholders."
