Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, integrated into the company’s new EnerPlexTM series of consumer products, announced on June 18th, 2013, the signing of an agreement to raise $6 million through a private placement to a high net worth private investor in Asia. In the private placement, the Company will issue (i) shares of Series A Preferred Stock convertible, at a conversion price of $0.80 per share, into 7,500,000 shares of common stock and (ii) warrants with a three year term to acquire 2,625,000 shares of common stock at a cash exercise price of $0.90 per share.

The private placement will be funded in three tranches, with the initial $1 million tranche to be closed this week.
