Impact Coatings: US BASED CREDE CAPITAL GROUP LIKES TO ENTER AS A SHAREHOLDER IN IMPACT COATINGS

Impact Coatings has today signed an agreement with Crede Capital Group
to propose to an extra shareholders meeting a capital increase
through a private placement of 30 million SEK. These funds will be
used both for the MaxPhase Divisions' continued positioning towards
the automotive industry and partly to secure the need of working
capital for an increased sales of coating systems.

Upon approval, the process to further strengthen the two divisions,
Systems and MaxPhase, will continue.

2015 has been a successful year for the company. After a long period
of development of the company's offer, the positive response from the
market steered us towards system solutions for the automotive
industry, to customers who's core business is depending of decorative
coatings and not least, the production of Ceramic MaxPhase™-coated
plates for fuel cells.

A large part of the leading automotive companies and clusters are
using Impact Coatings' solution for coating fuel cell plates. Thus,
we are directly involved in the powerful R&D efforts, which are
preparing for mass production of fuel cell electrical vehicles,
FCEVs. On top of this, we have had a steady revenue stream through a
continuous demand for sub-contract production.

The Systems Division has had a breakthrough in sales during the second
half of last year. But the ramp-up of system deliveries ties up
capital. A liquidity that cannot always be matched with revenue
streams from customers. Therefore, access to capital has been
strained and sometimes become limiting for both expansion and
flexibility in the negotiations of new orders.

As a result of the positive development and to secure future growth,
the company has negotiated an agreement with US based Crede Capital
Group. Crede Capital Group, llc, based in Los Angeles and New York,
is a family office that invests in emerging growth companies
globally. Since its inception in 2008, Crede has invested in excess
of $1 billion in technology, life sciences, natural resources, clean
technology and other industries, including making early-stage
investments in some of Europe's most promising companies.

"A financially strong owner who believes in the company and invests
substantially is exactly the reinforcement we need to continue the
exciting development of Impact Coatings" - says Lars-Erik Nordell,
Chairman of the Board.

The shareholder meeting will be deciding on a private placement of a
number of shares, calculated by an agreed formula and equivalent to
30 million SEK. Funding that will make the necessary means for a
sustained and focused expansion. The dilution will be approximately 6
%.
