CIC Completes $1.1m Funding Round


REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Aug. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Communication Intelligence Corporation ("CIC") (OTCQB:CICI), a leading supplier of electronic signature and other software solutions enabling secure and cost-effective management of document-based digital transactions, today announced that it had closed a new round of funding with a number of existing and new investors to provide working capital.

In the transaction, which closed on August 5, 2014, investors subscribed to approximately $1.1 million of CIC's Series D-1 Convertible Preferred Stock, which can be converted to common stock at a price of $0.0225 per share.

"After evaluating a number of funding alternatives, we opted for this smaller private placement to limit shareholder dilution," said Philip Sassower, chairman and chief executive officer for CIC. "This additional capital injection, together with the funding available under the previously announced credit agreement with ICG, is expected to provide CIC with sufficient runway to execute on our healthy pipeline of opportunities, and to delay consideration of a broader-based strategy to recapitalize the company and to improve the trading environment for our shares of common stock. Phoenix and its investment partners remain committed to CIC and optimistic in the company's ability to successfully execute its business plan."

Additional information on this funding round is available in CIC's Current Report on Form 8-K that will be filed in the coming days with Securities and Exchange Commission, and will be made available at www.sec.gov.
