Stocks in this article: MBND

Multiband Corporation (NASDAQ: MBND), a leading Home Service Provider (HSP) for DIRECTV and the nation’s largest DIRECTV Master System Operator (MSO) for Multiple Dwelling Units (MDU's), today announced the pricing of a public offering of 11,200,000 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $3.00. Of the shares being offered, Multiband is offering 4,294,932 shares and the selling shareholder is offering 6,905,068 shares.

Craig-Hallum Capital Group is acting as the sole book-running manager for the offering, and Northland Capital Markets is acting as co-manager for the offering. In addition, Multiband has granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,680,000 shares of common stock to cover over-allotments, if any. Multiband intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including potential future acquisitions and redemption of its 15% Class E Cumulative Preferred Stock (which is currently owned by two of Multiband’s directors) for approximately $1.95 million. Multiband will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the selling shareholder. The offering is expected to close on or about June 1, 2011, subject to customary closing conditions.

The offering is being made solely by means of a prospectus, copies of which may be obtained by contacting Craig-Hallum Capital Group at 222 South Ninth Street, Suite 350, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55402, or by calling 612-334-6300.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities of Multiband, and there shall not be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
