IRIDEX Announces Automatic Conversion of Series A Preferred Stock to Common Stock
Date:6/11/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today announced that it has converted all outstanding shares of its Series A Preferred Stock into 1,000,000 shares of its common stock. The Series A Preferred shares were issued to BlueLine Capital Partners LP (BlueLine) as part of a private placement agreement that occurred in 2007. The Certificate of Designation provides that the Series A Preferred shares will automatically convert into common stock if IRIDEX common stock trades above $5.00 for 30 consecutive trading days.

"This is a positive development for the Company and has been a goal since BlueLine invested in IRIDEX in a private placement and the preferred shares were issued in 2007," Will Moore President and CEO of IRIDEX said. "I want to thank BlueLine for their initial and ongoing support that has allowed us to get to this point. The conversion simplifies our capital structure, is non-dilutive and is an indication that we have made great strides in the past year in meeting commercial and operational milestones and winning investor confidence. The Series A Preferred Stock has always been included in the diluted share count and will be part of the basic and diluted share count going forward."

As a result of the conversion, the separate right of the holders of Series A Preferred Stock to a senior liquidation preference and to appoint a second board member, subject to the approval of the Company, have also ceased.
