Pursuant to the terms of the definitive agreement, the Company expects to conduct two closings with parties to the definitive agreement.  The initial closing is expected to take place on Thursday, March 29, 2012 and the second closing is expected to take place on Monday, April 2, 2012.

Proceeds from the private placement will be used primarily to launch in full to the national metal working market by installing refinery filling stations, wholly owned and operated by MagneGas Corporation, and to significantly expand the Company's fuel cylinder inventory to fill more and larger orders.

Northland Capital Markets acted as the exclusive placement agent for the transaction.  Northland Capital Markets is the trade name for certain capital markets and investment banking activities of Northland Securities, Inc., member FINRA/SIPC.
