GE Energy Financial Services and GE Capital’s Equity unit provided $15 million of the amount raised by A123 in this financing. In addition to the private capital, A123 is seeking funds under federal and state stimulus and other programs to ramp up its production capabilities in Michigan. With this financing, we will begin an expansion that we expect to accelerate upon receipt of government funds.
