Smart Glass Company Research Frontiers Raises $1,475,000 In New Capital For Expansion

WOODBURY, N.Y., Dec. 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A group of accredited investors has invested $1,475,000 in new capital in addition to the $3,325,000 in expansion capital raised by Research Frontiers Inc. (Nasdaq:REFR) in September. Research Frontiers is the developer and licensor of patented SPD-Smart™ light-control film technology. The investors received 295,000 shares of Research Frontiers common stock at a price of $5.00 per share, which was the closing market price of Research Frontiers stock on November 26, 2010, the day the transaction was priced. In addition, the investors in this stock offering received 59,000 five-year warrants to purchase Research Frontiers common stock at a price of $6.75 per share. These securities were sold pursuant to Research Frontiers' effective shelf-registration statement filed with the SEC.

Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers, noted: "Since our last stock offering in September, new products and projects using our patented SPD-Smart light control technology have been announced by our licensees, and we have added people to the team involved with developing the SPD-Smart industry. This additional capital and expanded team will help us and our licensees continue on the accelerated pace to bring world-class SPD-Smart products to the automotive, architectural, aircraft and marine industries."

SPD-Smart light-control film technology transforms widely used products – windows, skylights, curtainwalls, partitions, sunroofs and more – into products that allow users to instantly and precisely control the light, glare and heat entering a building or vehicle. SPD-SmartGlass is instantly tunable to an infinite number of light transmission states regardless of window size, and easily adapts to individual preferences using control devices ranging from basic dimmer switches and photosensors to those that are integrated into a building's or vehicle's intelligent control system. These unequalled performance characteristics help optimize energy-savings and human comfort, and they offer many other desired benefits such as increased security, noise reduction, protection from harmful ultraviolet light and the potential for aesthetically distinctive designs. Additional information about SPD technology and SPD-Smart windows and other products can be found at www.SmartGlass.com.
