Ubiquity, Inc. Plans to Engage in a Registration to Enable it to Uplist to NASDAQ

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ubiquity, Inc. (OTCBB: UBIQ) ("Ubiquity" or the "Company"), a technology development and licensing company that holds an extensive portfolio of patents across multiple technology market verticals, announced today its strategy to uplist the trading of its common stock from the bulletin board to the NASDAQ stock market, including pursuing a firm commitment underwritten offering with gross proceeds to the Company of at least $40 million (the "Proposed Offering").  To better manage and increase the ability to successfully implement this strategy, Ubiquity has provided all of its current holders of its shares of restricted common stock with registration rights and the opportunity to participate in the Proposed Offering.

The Proposed Offering would satisfy one of the eligibility requirements to uplist trading of Ubiquity's common stock to NASDAQ. The Company intends to use most of the net proceeds from this Proposed Offering to substantially expand its marketing and distribution of its products.

"We believe uplisting to NASDAQ will improve our visibility to investors, as well as to enhance the trading liquidity of our common stock," commented Chris Carmichael, CEO of Ubiquity. "We believe our shareholders will benefit from this offering as it will allow us to continue to grow our company and drive shareholder value as we prepare for a future NASDAQ uplisting. Providing registration rights to our restricted stockholders will also mitigate the potential selling pressure that could complicate our proposed offering," noted Chris Carmichael, CEO.

Holders of restricted common stock who choose to join the registration rights agreement will agree to not sell their shares except as part of the Proposed Offering or unless certain events ("milestones") are not achieved by the dates specified in the Registration Rights Agreement.  These milestones represent many of the key execution points to successfully complete the Proposed Offering such as engaging the managing underwriter that is nationally recognized as a leading investment bank, filing the registration statement with the SEC on Form S-1 and completing the offering. 

"Ubiquity's Board of Directors believes that pursuing a firm commitment underwritten offering in a coordinated manner to uplist the trading of our common stock to NASDAQ is in the best interest of our stockholders. The registration provides a strategic foundation for the company, creates more opportunities to capture value for the company's extensive intellectual property and product offerings, and gives management many more strategic and operating alternatives. This is the most effective strategy for the company to pursue," commented Nicholas Mitsakos, Co-Chairman.
