Axia Advises Delphax Technologies on $7 Million Financing
September 11, 2007
For Immediate Release

Axia Advisors is pleased to announce that we advised Delphax Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: DLPX), a global provider of high speed digital printing systems, on their recent $7 million financing with an affiliate of Whitebox Advisors, LLC.

Having worked with Delphax on strategic and capital issues since 2005, helping them secure financing was a natural evolution of our relationship. "This new infusion of capital will play an important role in Delphax's long-term growth strategy," states John Ippolito, Managing Director, Axia Advisors. "In addition to giving them more resources to exploit the competitive advantages of their technology, it will reinforce their viability as a technology partner for leading printing and publishing customers."

The transaction was highly complex on several dimensions and required cooperation among all key capital structure constituents. This included Whitebox, Delphax's senior lender, and common shareholders who approved the transaction in July. Adding to the transaction's complexity was the fact that the subordinated promissory note was issued by Delphax's Canadian subsidiary.

In the second phase of the transaction, which closed on September 11th, Delphax's Canadian subsidiary issued a $7 million five-year secured subordinated promissory note. Delphax issued to Whitebox a warrant to purchase 6.3 million shares of Delphax common stock (in addition to the warrant to purchase 1.2 million shares in the first phase of the transaction). For a period of one year after September 11th, Whitebox has the right to buy on the same terms an additional $1.4 million subordinated note and obtain a warrant for an additional 1.5 million shares.
