Barfresh Completes $5.275 Million Equity Financing to Accelerate Growth

Company Expands Institutional Fund Ownership of Common Stock With Raise

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Mar 16, 2015) - Barfresh Food Group, Inc. ("Barfresh") (OTCQB: BRFH), a manufacturer of frozen, ready-to-blend beverages, today announced that it has closed a $5.275 million private placement of common stock and warrants to new institutional and accredited investors.

Under the terms of the funding transaction, Barfresh sold 10,550,000 common shares for $0.50 per share, along with warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 5,275,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.60 per share. The warrants will expire in five years and could represent an additional $3.165 million if exercised in cash.

This financing will provide Barfresh with additional working capital to rapidly scale new contracts and expand its operations to meet demand for its unique line of Smoo® blended beverages. Barfresh's proprietary Smoo® system uses controlled, pre-packaged portions to deliver freshly made, all natural, frozen beverages that are quick, cost-efficient and do not require significant equipment or space to produce. Unlike traditional methods, the all-in-one Smoo® packs have everything needed to produce a flavorful, fresh smoothie, frappe or shake, including ice. The Smoo® system results in virtually no waste and allows for simple, low-cost inventory management.

"We have recently entered into new distribution partnerships, expanded existing partnerships, enhanced our product line and made key hires on our management team," said Riccardo Delle Coste, CEO of Barfresh. "This funding will allow us to accelerate our growth strategy and satisfy the growing demand for our products by expanding our footprint and enter into additional distribution partnerships, both in the U.S. and abroad."

Wunderlich acted as an advisor and placement agent on the raise. Libertas Law Group of Los Angeles, California acted as legal counsel to Barfresh.
