EAST PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/17 -- Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN), a cybersecurity company, today announced that it has secured a $15.3 million Series A-1 Preferred Stock financing in a private placement transaction led by Soryn HLDR Vehicle II LLC ("Soryn HLDR"). Soryn HLDR was set up by Halcyon Long Duration Recoveries Management LP and its affiliates ("Halcyon") in partnership with Soryn Capital, LLC ("Soryn"), an affiliate of Soryn IP Group, LLC.
Finjan will issue 153,000 shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock at a price of $100 per share to Soryn HLDR. In connection with this transaction, the company will also issue to Soryn HLDR warrants to purchase two million shares of common stock at an exercise price of $3.18 per common share.
The Series A-1 Preferred Stock contains certain optional and mandatory redemptive provisions, does not accrue an annual cash dividend, and carries participation rights in certain of the Company's revenue streams until securities are retired. More complete information regarding the financing is included in a Form 8-K which was filed by Finjan with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 20, 2017.
"This second financing with our Soryn and Halcyon partners represents an important milestone as they have grown to appreciate not only the value of Finjan's patent portfolio but our ability to execute against our strategic objectives," said Phil Hartstein, President and CEO of Finjan Holdings. "We redeemed and retired shares issued in the first financing in less than one year, our balance sheet is well-infused with cash, and we continue to carry no debt. As was the case in the first transaction, these new funds, which were received on June 19, offer us additional security to operate our business, pursue licensing at an accelerated rate and the flexibility to explore both organic and inorganic paths towards future growth."
"We are looking forward to this next stage of our relationship with Finjan, a company with a rich history in cybersecurity, which has also led the way in pioneering licensing best practices," commented Michael Gulliford, the Founder & Managing Principal of Soryn. "In the past year, Finjan has achieved a cadence of new licensees, multiple settlements, several new updates to its platform and a promising partnership for its Mobile security business. We are proud to continue standing behind a true innovator in the cybersecurity space."
B. Riley & Company, LLC acted as placement agent for the transaction.
