IRVINE, Calif., July 16, 2020  /PRNewswire/ —  BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), a global leader in dental lasers, announced today the expiration of the Company’s rights offering, which was oversubscribed.  The subscription period for its previously announced rights offering (the «Offering») of units at a subscription price of $1,000 per unit, consisting of one share of the Company’s newly created Series F Convertible Preferred Stock with a face value of $1,000 (and immediately convertible at the option of the holder into shares of BIOLASE’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.40 per share) and 2,500 warrants to purchase BIOLASE’s common stock with an exercise price of $0.40 per share, expired on July 15, 2020, and these rights are no longer exercisable.

The subscriptions totaled approximately 49,375 units (approximately 229% oversubscribed). Due to the over-subscription of the units, the Company upsized the Offering from the original 15,000 units offered to 18,000 units.  The participants are expected to be reduced pro-rata to the total upsized Offering of 18,000 units.  Preliminary estimates indicate that the Company will be raising gross proceeds of approximately $18.0 million in the oversubscribed Offering, excluding any proceeds that may be received by the Company from the future exercise of the warrants included in the units.  The results of the oversubscribed Offering and BIOLASE’s estimates regarding the aggregate gross proceeds of the oversubscribed Offering to be received by BIOLASE are subject to finalization and verification by its subscription agent.

BIOLASE anticipates that closing of the Offering will occur on or about July 20, 2020, subject to satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to closing.  Upon the closing, the subscription agent will distribute, by way of direct registration in book-entry form or through the facilities of DTC, as applicable, shares of its Series F Convertible Preferred stock and warrants to holders of rights who have validly exercised their rights and paid the subscription price in full.  No physical stock or warrant certificates will be issued to such holders.

Maxim Group LLC, The Benchmark Company, LLC and Colliers Securities LLC acted as joint Dealer-Managers for the Offering.
