10.9.2007: Meldung: Millennium Cell Issues Convertible Preferred Stock

Millennium Cell Inc., a leading developer of hydrogen battery technology, today announced that the Company has issued 113,746 shares of series A2-2 Convertible Preferred Stock to The Dow Chemical Company ("Dow") for their contribution of human resources and intellectual property associated with the achievement of Milestone 2 under their joint development program. The series A2-2 is convertible into common stock on a ratio of 10 common shares for each preferred share.

In February 2005, Millennium Cell and Dow entered into a three-year, milestone-driven joint development program to collaborate on the development and commercialization of portable fuel cell systems for use in consumer electronics and military applications. On July 26, 2007, Millennium Cell and Dow announced the achievement of Milestone 2 with the delivery to the U.S. Air Force of Protonex Technology Corporation"s ProCore(TM) C50 and C720 fuel cell power products utilizing Millennium Cell"s Hydrogen on Demand® technology which triggered this issuance of convertible preferred shares.

Millennium Cell and Dow have been collaborating on an innovative hydrogen storage technology (Solid State HOD(TM)) which has unlimited shelf life, no moving parts, and can significantly extend the runtime of fuel cell powered consumer electronics devices. Based on the results to date, the companies have modified their joint development program in several ways including making Milestone 3 the final milestone and revising Milestone 3 to focus exclusively on Solid State HOD(TM) for consumer electronics applications.

The Current Report on Form 8-K filed today by Millennium Cell discloses the issuance of the Company"s Series A-2 Preferred Stock made in consideration for the achievement of the second milestone and provides additional information with respect to such issuance.
