CUPERTINO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/24/14 -- Inventergy Inc., an intellectual property acquisition and licensing company, announced today that it has signed agreements to raise $3 million in additional financing largely from its existing investor base. The capital will be used to expand the company's operations and continue to drive acquisition and licensing programs.
"We are delighted to see such a strong show of support from our early investors," said Joe Beyers, Chairman and CEO of Inventergy. "This additional investment will allow us to accelerate our growth and monetization activities, while restructuring the company's existing indebtedness and strengthening our overall financial position."
Under the terms of the agreement, Inventergy will receive $3,000,000 in senior secured debt convertible into common stock. The current $5,000,000 in senior secured debt will be exchanged for a similar security. The convertible notes are secured by a first priority lien on all of the Inventergy's assets including the 667 patent assets acquired from Huawei and Panasonic and bear an interest rate of 4% which will be reduced to 2% upon the company achieving certain requirements. Subject to certain limitations, the notes are convertible into common stock at $7.50 per share.
The convertible notes are fully amortizing, with principal and interest payments due quarterly commencing October 15, 2014. In addition, the Company has the right to prepay up to half of the then-remaining principal amount of the convertible notes at any time. The prior notes were nonconvertible but were pre-payable by Inventergy.
The noteholders have the right to accelerate payment of the notes on an event of default or a change in control (other than the previously announced pending merger with eOn Communication).
The foregoing is a summary of the terms of the convertible debt. Copies of the Securities Purchase Agreement, form of Convertible Note, Cash Collateral Agreement and Amendment No. 1 to the Merger Agreement are available on our website at http://www.inventergy.com/news/pr/Inventergy-3-24-14.
The sale of the Convertible notes is expected to close on or about March 25, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The convertible notes were issued primarily to existing equity holders of Inventergy. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
