Cyclone Power Technologies Completes Seed Round Funding for Its Waste Heat Subsidiary, WHE Generation

Cyclone Pays-Off and Retires Senior Secured Debt in the Process, Improves Balance Sheet and Establishes Foundation for Licensing Revenue Streams

POMPANO BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CYPW), developer of the all-fuel clean-tech Cyclone Engine, announced that its subsidiary WHE Generation Corp. ("WHE GEN") has closed its Seed Round of funding in the amount of $350,000. The financing was led by Laird Q. Cagan, co-founder and Managing Director of Cagan McAffee Capital Partners LLC in Cupertino, CA, and joined by 14 other individual and strategic accredited investors.

As a closing condition to the transaction and use of a material portion of the proceeds of the Seed Round funding, the Company paid the remaining balance of its senior secured debenture with TCA Global Credit Master Fund L.P. The payment fully retired that long-term liability and will release all of the Company's assets from a security interest and lien held by TCA.

The Seed Round funding was structured as several promissory notes issued by WHE GEN, bearing 6% interest and maturing in 12 months. The notes automatically convert to common stock of WHE GEN at a price of $.12 per share upon the closing of the first $1 million in the subsidiary's planned $2 million "A Round" common stock funding. The Seed Round and A Round financings were described in the Company's Separation Agreement with WHE GEN, approved by Cyclone's Board of Directors and signed last week. Assuming the full conversion of the Seed Round notes to WHE GEN common stock, Cyclone would continue to own approximately 43% of its subsidiary.

The financing of its subsidiary marks a material step forward in Cyclone's long-range plans of building its licensing business model on a worldwide basis, establishing new revenue streams, and growing its intellectual property portfolio.

The securities which have been offered in the Seed Round and which may be offered in the future A Round have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
