Laser Energetics Inc. (LEI) announced that it has executed a financing agreement for a $12 million equity investment into the company.

The $12 million will give us the ability to immediately ramp up our production capacity to meet the demand for our BrightStar laser systems. It will also accelerate our research and development efforts, allowing us to bring both new technology and refinements to our existing technologies to the market in a very rapid fashion. It is unusual for a company our size to receive such a large equity investment, particularly at a premium, and we view this as validation of our business plan and our technologies.
