Clarification on Recent Private Sale of Series C Preferred Stock

February 2, 2017

By Andy Marsh, President & CEO

There seems to be confusion about a transaction that occurred earlier this week.  An affiliate of one of our board members purchased approximately half of Air Liquide’s remaining stake in the Series C Preferred stock.  This was done at the market price of about $1.18 per common share equivalent on the day of the transaction.

The math:  2,620 preferred shares purchased at $1,256.81/preferred share equals total transaction value of $3,292,842.20.  The 2,620 preferred shares convert into 2,782,075 common shares, resulting in the equivalent of $1.18 per common share price.

This was completed as a private transaction between shareholders, which includes a six month period where the shares cannot be resold.  It highlights the commitment to the long term growth and value of Plug Power.
