Atomera Incorporated Reports 2016 Second Quarter Results

LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/19/16 -- Atomera Incorporated ("Atomera" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ATMR), a semiconductor materials and intellectual property licensing company focused on deploying its proprietary technology into the $350+ billion semiconductor industry, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Unaudited 2016 Second Quarter Financial Results

We incurred a net loss of $2.6 million, or $(1.61) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or $(1.21) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2015. Net losses included non-cash interest expenses of approximately $746,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and approximately $561,000 in the second quarter of 2015.

As of June 30, 2016, we had total assets of approximately $5.68 million and a working capital deficit of approximately $18.21 million, including principal and accrued interest on our Senior Secured Convertible Notes of $23.26 million.

Initial Public Offering

On August 10, 2016, we announced the closing of our initial public offering ("IPO") of 3,680,000 share of common stock at a public offering price of $7.50 per share. The common stock included 480,000 shares sold as a result of the underwriter's exercise in full of its overallotment option. Gross proceeds to us from this offering were $27,600,000 before deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and other offering expenses. In accordance with the terms of the Secured Notes, all principal plus accrued interest through August 10, 2016 (totaling approximately $23.5 million) converted automatically upon consummation of the IPO into 6,264,659 million shares of common stock thus extinguishing the debt associated with the Secured Notes.

We will not host a conference call related to our second quarter results. Subsequent to our third quarter earnings release, Atomera will commence hosting conference calls and webcasts to discuss recent progress and financial results. Information about our quarterly results, conference calls, webcasts and other investor information will be posted at ir.atomera.com.
