CAMPBELL, Calif., March 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTCQB: KULR) (the “Company” or “KULR”), a leading developer of battery safety and thermal management technologies, announced today it secured financing from Yorkville Advisors. KULR closed on an initial loan of $1,500,000 with an additional Standby Equity Distribution Agreement (“SEDA”) in place. Under the terms of the SEDA agreement, Yorkville has committed up to $8,000,000 equity financing over a 24-month period in individual tranches of up to $100,000 each. In exchange for the funds to be provided at each tranche that KULR, at its sole discretion, determines to initiate, Yorkville will receive KULR shares at a price which will be determined anew each time a SEDA tranche is called.

“This capital investment is a show of confidence in our technology and capacity to commercialize our space-proven thermal management technologies in consumer-facing markets,” said Michael Mo, CEO of KULR. “The proceeds will help bolster the growing number of consumer-facing developmental projects we’re taking on, beyond our normal aerospace customer engagements.”
KULR currently works with NASA’s Marshall Space Center and NASA’s Ames Research Center on the PPR CubeSat battery design to meet the JSC 20793 Revision D safety standard created by NASA for a crewed space mission. Also, KULR’s HYDRA thermal runaway shield technology was recently deployed to the International Space Station to store laptop batteries and also is currently being tested by a Tier-1 medical device maker, an electric aircraft maker and others. The Company looks forward to providing important news about product development partnerships throughout 2020.
