NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO), an innovative health care company that develops wearable medical technology and point-of-care tests to help patients and physicians manage chronic pain, nerve diseases, and sleep disorders, today announced that it has priced an upsized underwritten public offering of 147,000 units, with each unit consisting of one share of Series B convertible preferred stock and 99 warrants exercisable for 99 shares of our common stock, at a public offering price of $100 per unit. The units will immediately and automatically separate upon issuance. Subject to certain ownership limitations, the Series B convertible preferred stock is convertible at any time into an aggregate of 14,553,000 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $1.0101 per share and the warrants are exercisable for an aggregate of 14,553,000 shares of common stock. The warrants have an exercise price of $1.25 per share, expire five years from the date of issuance and are expected to begin trading today on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "NUROW".

The gross proceeds to the Company from this offering are estimated to be approximately $14.7 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses payable by the Company, and before the repurchase of all of the outstanding shares of the Company's Series A-4 convertible preferred stock for approximately $3.2 million, which is expected to occur simultaneously with the closing of this offering. The offering is anticipated to close on May 29, 2015, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of this offering to fund the commercial launch of Quell™ in the United States and for general corporate purposes.
