REAL GOODS SOLAR, INC. FILES (8-K) Disclosing Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities, Financial Statements and Exhibits

July 9, 2014

Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 9, 2014, Real Goods Solar, Inc., a Colorado corporation (the "Company"), closed the private placement (the "Private Placement") contemplated by the Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Securities Purchase Agreement") the Company entered into on July 2, 2014 with unaffiliated investors identified therein (each, an "Investor" and collectively, the "Investors"). At the closing the Company issued 2,919,301 shares of Class A common stock (the "Common Stock") at a purchase price of $2.40 per share, for approximately $7.0 million in the aggregate, and Common Stock Purchase Warrants (the "Warrants") to purchase up to an aggregate of 1,313,686 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $3.19 per such share underlying the Warrants. Eight of the Investors were affiliated with the lead placement agent the Company retained for the Private Placement. The transactions contemplated by the Securities Purchase Agreement, including the issuance of the Common Stock and the Warrants, was not a "public offering" as defined in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and met the requirements to qualify for exemption under Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.

Roth Capital Partners, LLC served as lead placement agent and Maxim Group LLC served as co-placement agent in connection with the Private Placement.

Upon the closing of the Private Placement, the Company issued the Warrants. The Warrants may be exercised, in whole or in part, upon the election of the holder at any time beginning on January 9, 2015 and until January 9, 2020 at an initial exercise price per share of $3.19, and may be exercised in a cashless exercise under certain circumstances. The exercise price and number of shares of Common Stock issuable under the Warrants are subject to anti-dilutive adjustments upon the occurrence of certain events, such as stock splits. The Company may not issue any shares of Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrants if the issuance would exceed the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock the Company may issue in the Private Placement under applicable NASDAQ rules unless the Company first obtains shareholder approval to such issuance. The Warrants contain provisions concerning the assumption of the Warrants in connection with a Fundamental Transaction (as defined in the Warrant), and mandatory and voluntary redemption of the Warrants under certain circumstances.

Upon closing of the Private Placement, the Company entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the "Registration Rights Agreement") with the Investors, which sets forth the rights of the Investors to have their shares of Common Stock purchased in the Private Placement and shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") for public resale under the Securities Act.

Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is required to file a registration statement with the SEC (the "Registration Statement") within 35 days after the closing of the Private Placement, registering the total number of shares of Common Stock purchased in the Private Placement and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The Company is required to have the Registration Statement declared effective within 90 days after the date of the closing of the Private Placement. The Company will also be required to maintain the effectiveness of the Registration Statement until the earlier to occur of (i) the fifth anniversary of the effectiveness of the Registration Statement or (ii) the date on which all of the registrable securities covered by the Registration Rights Agreement have been sold or transferred in a manner that they may be resold without subsequent registration under the Securities Act.

The Registration Rights Agreement further provides that in the event that (i) the Company has not filed the Registration Statement or a final prospectus within the prescribed time period, (ii) the SEC has not declared effective the Registration Statement within the prescribed time period, (iii) the Registration Statement ceases to be effective and available to the investors under certain circumstances, or (iv) the Company fails to timely file all reports required to be filed by the Company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, other than Current Reports on Form 8-K, the Company shall pay to the holders of registrable securities, on the occurrence of each such event and on each monthly anniversary thereof until the applicable event is cured, an amount in cash equal to 1.0% of the aggregate purchase price paid by such Investor multiplied by the percentage of such Investor's registrable securities that are not covered by the Registration Statement, up to a maximum of 10.0% of such aggregate purchase price.

The Warrants and the Registration Rights Agreement contain ordinary and customary provisions for agreements of this nature, such as covenants and indemnification obligations, as applicable. The foregoing descriptions of the Warrants and the Registration Rights Agreement do not purport to describe all of the terms and provisions thereof and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the forms of Warrant and the Registration Rights Agreement which are filed as Exhibits 4.1 and 10.1, respectively, to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 3, 2014, and are incorporated herein by reference.
