Upon conversion, the Company issued an additional 702.5M shares of restricted Common Stock to the Boone Group.

The President and CEO of Ascent Solar, Mr. Victor Lee, said, “The conversion into Common Stock of the Company by Boone Group, despite the large premium over the current stock price, clearly demonstrates Boone’s continuous belief in Ascent Solar and the Company’s award-winning, monolithically-integrated and flexible CIGS solar technology.
