Nephros Announces Rights Offering and Temporary Reduction in Exercise Price for March 2011 Warrants
Date:4/17/2013

RIVER EDGE, N.J., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nephros, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NEPH), a commercial stage medical device company that develops and sells high performance liquid purification ultrafilters, announced today that it has commenced its previously disclosed rights offering.  On April 17, 2013, the Company will distribute to holders of its common stock and/or warrants one non-transferable subscription right for each share of common stock, and each share of common stock underlying a warrant, held as of April 4, 2013.  The rights offering will expire at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on May 17, 2013, if not extended by the Company in its sole discretion.

On March 4, 2013, the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) a registration statement on Form S-1, which was subsequently amended by a registration statement on Form S-1/A filed with the SEC on April 8, 2013.  The registration statement was declared effective by the SEC on April 17, 2013.

Each subscription right will entitle its holder to purchase 0.18776 of a share of common stock of the Company at a subscription price of $0.60 per share.  The Company will not issue fractional shares issuable upon exercise of the subscription rights.  Instead, the Company will round up any such fractional shares to the nearest whole share.

The rights offering includes an over-subscription privilege which permits each rights holder that exercises its rights in full to purchase additional shares of common stock that remain unsubscribed at the expiration of the rights offering.  This over-subscription privilege is subject to the availability and allocation of shares among holders exercising this over-subscription privilege.  Assuming the rights offering is fully subscribed, the Company estimates that it will receive gross proceeds of $3 million, less the expenses of the rights offering.

In addition to the rights offering, the Company also announced today that, commencing April 17, 2013, and during the period that the rights offering is open (or until 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on May 17, 2013), it has temporarily reduced the exercise price for its warrants issued in March 2011 from $0.40 per share to $0.30 per share.  After the expiration of this offering period, the exercise price will revert back to $0.40 per share.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described herein, nor shall there be any sale of these securities, in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any jurisdiction.  The offering may only be made by means of a prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained from Nephros, Inc., 41 Grand Avenue, River Edge, New Jersey 07661, Attention: Gerald J. Kochanski , (201) 343-5202, ext. 102.

About Nephros, Inc.

Nephros is a commercial stage medical device company that develops and sells high performance liquid purification filters.  Our filters, which we call ultrafilters, are primarily used in dialysis centers and healthcare facilities for the production of ultrapure water and bicarbonate. 

We were founded in 1997 by healthcare professionals affiliated with Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital to develop and commercialize an alternative method to hemodialysis (HD).  In 2009, we began to extend our filtration technologies to meet the demand for liquid purification in other areas, in particular water purification.

Presently, we offer seven types of ultrafilters for sale to customers in four markets:

  • Dialysis Centers – Water/Bicarbonate:  Treatment of both water and bicarbonate for the production of ultrapure dialysate
  • Hospitals and Other Healthcare Facilities:  Removal of infectious agents in drinking and bathing water, particularly in high risk patient areas
  • Military:  Highly compact, individual water treatment devices used by soldiers to produce safe drinking water in the field
  • Dialysis Centers – Blood:  Clearance of toxins from blood using an alternative method to HD in patients with chronic renal failure
