LOUISVILLE, Colo., Nov. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Real Goods Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq:RSOL), a nationwide leader of turnkey solar energy solutions for residential, commercial, and utility customers, has completed the previously announced offering of 5,900,000 units consisting of its class A common stock and Class A common stock warrants in an underwritten public offering at a price of $3.40 per unit. Each unit consisted of one share of Class A common stock and one warrant to purchase 0.85 of a share of Class A common stock. The warrants have a term of five and one-half years and are initially exercisable beginning one year after the closing date. The warrants have an exercise price of $3.41 per share.

The net offering proceeds to Real Goods Solar from the sale of the units is approximately $18.4 million, after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and other estimated offering expenses.

"These funds substantially strengthen our balance sheet allowing us to accelerate growth in key residential and commercial markets," said Real Goods Solar CEO Kam Mofid. "We will also be able to continue to invest in and enhance our sales and project development capabilities while increasing our overall operational and system deployment capacity."

"Attractive customer economics and the environmental benefits of solar create a compelling case for continued growth in the sector," continued Mofid. "We are excited to play a significant role in bringing 100% clean and renewable energy to businesses and consumers."

Cowen and Company, LLC acted as the sole book-running manager for the offering.

The offering was conducted via a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-190050) including a base prospectus, previously filed and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The final prospectus supplement related to the offering was filed with the SEC on November 15, 2013 and is available on the SEC's website located at www.sec.gov. The shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants, or warrant shares, are not registered under a registration statement or the prospectus supplement. Real Goods Solar has agreed to file a registration statement covering the issuance of the warrant shares prior to the time the warrants become exercisable.
