Zecotek Photonics Inc. Closes Non-Brokered Private Placement


11/3/2010 11:05:08 AM

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE--(Marketwire - November 03, 2010) - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ZMS)(FRANKFURT: W1I), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for medical, industrial and scientific markets, today announced that it has closed the non-brokered private placement previously announced on October 19, 2010. The Company has sold 2,773,584 units of the Company at a price of $0.53 per unit for gross proceeds of $1,469,999.52.

Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share at an exercise price of $0.70 per common share at any time on or before the 24-month anniversary of the closing of the offering. The Warrant's exercise period will automatically accelerate if the common shares of the Company trade above $1.25 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days.

Net proceeds from the funds raised will be used to complete licensing agreements and technology transfer for commercialization in the Company's three operating division, to build and maintain patents of the IP portfolio and for general working capital purposes.

Pursuant to the financing, the Company will pay a finder's fee equal to 5% of a portion of the gross proceeds of the sale of the Shares and issue 124,811 non-transferable finder's warrants. Each finder's warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share at $0.70 for a period of 24 months after the date the private placement closes. All shares and warrants are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on March 3, 2011.
