Summer Infant, Inc. Announces Expiration of Warrants

WOONSOCKET, RI--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - Summer Infant, Inc. ("Summer Infant" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SUMR) today announced that the Company's publicly traded warrants (NASDAQ: SUMRW) expired on April 20, 2009 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time in accordance with the terms of the warrant securities. The warrants were originally issued in conjunction with KBL Healthcare Acquisition Corp. II's initial public offering in 2005, and prior to expiration each warrant was exercisable for the purchase of one share of common stock. There were approximately 3,633,953 redeemable common stock purchase warrants outstanding as of April 20, 2009.

"The expiration of the remaining warrants streamlines our capital structure and removes the significant overhang on our total shares outstanding, as these warrants could have been potentially dilutive to existing shareholders if they had been exercised," commented Jason Macari, CEO and Chairman of Summer Infant.
