The Preferred Stock is initially convertible into shares of the company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) at a value of $5.50 per share of Common Stock subject to daily adjustment thereafter, and a Series H warrant to purchase 181.8181 shares of Class A common stock at an initial exercise price of $5.50 per share subject to a one-time adjustment in the future.

“This additional capital is another step in our business turnaround strategy,” said Alan Fine, RGS Energy’s Vice President of Operations and Principal Financial Officer. “Another element of our capital raising plan is the anticipated conversions by the April 2016 convertible note holders that can begin starting October 1, 2016. These conversions are expected to result in the release of the $8.25 million presently held in restricted cash. Our capital raising plan is expected to substantially improve our financial position by year end.”
