The Series A warrants are exercisable until January 4, 2022. Oblong has also agreed to issue to the investors in a concurrent private placement Series B warrants to purchase an aggregate of 3,000,000 shares of common stock that are exercisable six months and one day following issuance, are exercisable for three years from the initial exercise date, and have an exercise price of $4.40 per share.

The gross proceeds to Oblong, before deducting placement agent fees and other offering expenses, are expected to be $12.4 million. Oblong intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include working capital, capital expenditures and other corporate expenses. Subject to the registration of the common shares underlying the warrants, the warrants may be exercised only for cash, and upon exercise would generate up to an additional $17.2 million in gross proceeds to the Company.
