BOTHELL, WA – Dec 1, 2015 – Neah Power Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: NPWZ) (OTC: NPWZ) – today issued the following letter to shareholders:
Dear Fellow Shareholders:
Over the last six months, NEAH Power Systems has witnessed a tremendous response to our products and technologies. Recently, we have announced teaming agreements with several leading companies in the security/defense, robotics and mobile electronics industries. Additionally, we have expanded industry relationships with battery and fuel cell suppliers and manufacturers and have entered into discussions with multiple strategic partners regarding the license, sale and manufacture of NEAH Power’s products. To help facilitate and manage this growth the Company, has also expanded with the addition of several key consultants and advisors bringing high value associations including potential co-development sponsors within the U.S. Government. All of this, together with other significant advancements, is expected to open the door to the use of our products in several rapidly expanding markets, including transportation/automotive, distributed energy/smart grid infrastructure and telecommunications, and result in significant revenue growth.

As to current capital-raising efforts, the company had previously entered into a senior secured loan agreement with a Connecticut based investment fund. The loan agreement provides for $6 million in debt financing with an initial draw down of $4.5 million at closing. For each drawdown, interest is accrued at LIBOR plus 4% with maximum interest rate of 6%. There is no repayment within the first three years. Additional details will be provided at the time of funding. While we have had significant delays, the Investor believes that this funding is expected to close sometime in 4Q 2015 based on latest guidance. Due diligence by the investor has gone well, and both parties have agreed to final documents, which will be executed at funding. We are receiving status updates on an almost daily basis.
A Note to Potential Investors: the Securities and Exchange Commission recently amended Regulation D by, among other things, creating Rule 506 (c) that now permits the Company to announce investment opportunities, publicly. Subject to certain due diligence requirements to confirm that any investor is “accredited”, potential investors should contact: Mr. David Schmidt (firstname.lastname@example.org)_- at the Company to explore current investment opportunities
Other business development activity includes –
- $3mm to $5mm equity funding or license payment with a sovereign fund of a Middle East nation, subject to satisfactory due diligence, and finalization of the material terms.
- Consultant-generated licensing and funding opportunities, ranging from $1mm to $3mm with certain qualified parties from the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and China, also subject to due diligence and negotiation of definitive agreements.
We believe these capitalization and commercialization efforts would help accelerate product deployment and unlock the intrinsic value of the Company.
We will further discuss ongoing commercial initiatives tomorrow, Dec 2nd 2015.
Thank you for your continued support, and best regards,
President & CEO
