SAN JOSE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 8, 2024 / Peraso Inc. (NASDAQ:PRSO) ("Peraso" or the "Company"), a leader in mmWave technology, today announced the closing of its previously announced underwritten public offering of common stock, pre-funded warrants, Series A warrants and Series B warrants for gross proceeds of approximately $4.172 million, prior to deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses. The offering proceeds include partial exercise of the underwriter's over-allotment option to purchase additional shares of common stock, Series A warrants and Series B warrants (the "Offering").

The securities issued at closing included 82,500 shares of common stock, Series A warrants to purchase up to 165,000 shares of common stock and Series B warrants to purchase up to 165,000 shares of common stock, which securities were issued upon the partial exercise of the underwriter's over-allotment option.

Each share of common stock and each pre-funded warrant was sold together with two Series A warrants to purchase one share of common stock each and two Series B warrants to purchase one share of common stock each. The Series A warrants have an exercise price of $2.25 per share, are exercisable immediately upon issuance, and expire five years following the date of issuance.
