Harris & Harris Group Notes ABSMaterials' Series B Financing

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harris & Harris Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:TINY), an investor in transformative companies enabled by disruptive science, notes the announcement by ABSMaterials, Inc., of its Series B financing. RKS Ventures, a strategic investment group based in Nashua, NH, led the Series B financing round, raising over $4 million. RKS is joined by existing investors, including Harris & Harris Group and a number of individuals. The funding will be used for manufacturing improvements and expansion into new markets, including Asia.

"RKS Ventures is a great strategic fit for ABSMaterials at this stage of its development," says Douglas Jamison, CEO of Harris & Harris Group.
