Resonant Inc. Announces Signing of Securities Purchase Agreement to Raise up to $6 Million in Gross Proceeds

GOLETA, Calif.-- Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN), a developer of innovative filter designs for radio frequency front-ends (RFFEs) for the mobile device industry, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement with various institutional and individual accredited investors and certain of its officers and directors to raise gross proceeds of up to $6 million in a private placement of units at a per-unit price of $2.985 (the Offering).

Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (Common Stock), and one warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $2.86 per share. The warrant is exercisable for a period commencing six months and ending three years from the date of the closing of the Offering. Resonant anticipates using the net proceeds from the fund raising to continue its product development efforts and business development activities, and for general and administrative purposes.

National Securities Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of National Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:NHLD), and Drexel Hamilton, LLC are acting as co-placement agents for the Offering.

The Offering is expected to close on or prior to April 26, 2016, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The warrants will not be separately listed for trading. Details of the Offering will be included in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed shortly after closing.

Resonant will be required to file a resale registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission within 30 days following the closing that covers the resale by the purchasers of the shares of Common Stock, and the shares of Common Stock underlying the warrants, purchased by them in the Offering.

About Resonant® Inc.

Resonant is creating innovative filter designs for the RFFE for the mobile device industry. The RFFE is the circuitry in a mobile device responsible for analog signal processing and is located between the device’s antenna and its digital baseband. Filters are a critical component of the RFFE that selects the desired radio frequency signals and rejects unwanted signals and noise. For more information, please visit

About Resonant’s ISN® Technology

Resonant can create designs for hard bands and complex requirements that can be manufactured for half the cost and developed in half the time of traditional approaches. The Company’s large suite of proprietary mathematical methods, software design tools and network synthesis techniques enable the ability to explore a much bigger set of possible solutions and quickly derive the better ones. These improved filters still use existing manufacturing methods (i.e. SAW) and can perform as well as those using higher cost methods (i.e. BAW). While most of the industry designs surface acoustic wave filters using a coupling-of-modes model, Resonant uses circuit models and physical models. Circuit models are computationally much faster, and physical models are highly accurate models based entirely on fundamental material properties and dimensions. Resonant’s method delivers excellent predictability, enabling achievement of the desired product performance in roughly half as many turns through the fab. In addition, because Resonant’s models are fundamental and therefore speak the “fab language” of basic material properties and dimensions, integration with foundry partners and fab customers is eased.
