RMG Networks Raises $25 Million in Private Placement of Convertible Preferred Stock

Existing Senior Debt Facility to Fully Convert in Connection With the Transaction

Net Proceeds to Service Liquidity Needs and Fund Growth Initiatives

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2015) - RMG Networks Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: RMGN), or RMG Networks, a leading provider of technology-driven visual communications solutions, today announced the sale of $25 million in Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Preferred Stock") to institutional and accredited investors (the "Financing"). The Financing is comprised of $15 million from the full conversion of the company's existing senior debt facility and approximately $10 million in new capital, prior to the payment of fees and other transaction expenses. With the conversion of its senior credit facility, the company expects to be debt free, with the exception of capital leases.

The Financing includes 250,000 shares of Preferred Stock that are mandatorily convertible into 25,000,000 shares of RMG Networks common stock, reflecting an effective transaction price of $1.00 per common share. The Preferred Stock is mandatorily convertible upon an affirmative shareholder vote approving the conversion. The company expects to file a proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for such purpose in the coming days and has received support agreements committing to vote in favor of approving the conversion from investors representing approximately 45% of common shares outstanding.

The Preferred Stock does not pay dividends unless the company fails to hold a meeting of its stockholders to approve the conversion of the preferred stock within 60 days of closing the Financing (or within 75 days of closing the Financing in the case of SEC review of the proxy statement for such meeting) at which point dividends begin accruing at a rate of 1% per month or portion thereof. The company is required to file a registration statement with the SEC for the common shares underlying the Preferred Stock within 30 days of closing the Financing. The Financing also carries other terms and conditions representative of a transaction of this type, the full description of which can be reviewed in documents attached to the company's filing with the SEC on Form 8-K.

The Preferred Stock was offered and sold in a private placement pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and Regulation D promulgated thereunder. The securities sold in the Financing have not been registered under the Securities Act, or state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration with the SEC or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

Roth Capital Partners served as the sole placement agent for the Financing.
