SANTA CLARITA, Calif., Jan. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSolar, Inc. (OTC:
BSRC), a developer of clean energy technologies, today announced the closing
of its previously announced private placement offering of 83,333,334 shares of
common stock (or common stock equivalents in lieu thereof) and warrants to
purchase up to an aggregate of 83,333,334 shares of common stock. The combined
purchase price for one share of common stock (common stock equivalent) and a
warrant to purchase one share of common stock was $0.06. The warrants have an
exercise price of $0.06 per share, will be immediately exercisable and will
expire five and one-half years from the issue date.

H.C. Wainwright & Co. acted as the exclusive placement agent for the offering.

The gross proceeds from the private placement offering were approximately $5.0
million. The Company intends to use the net proceeds primarily to aggressively
expand and accelerate the development of its electrolyzer technology to lower
the cost of green hydrogen production, as well as for working capital and
general corporate purposes.

The offer and sale of the foregoing securities were made in a transaction not
involving a public offering and have not been registered under the Securities
Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or applicable state
securities laws. Accordingly, the securities may not be reoffered or resold in
the United States except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an
applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act
and such applicable state securities laws.

Under an agreement with the investors, the Company is required to file an
initial registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission
covering the resale of the securities issued to the investors within 15
calendar days and to use its best efforts to have the registration statement
declared effective as promptly as practical thereafter, and in any event no
later than 90 days after today in the event of a “full review” by the
Securities and Exchange Commission.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of
an offer to buy, nor there any sales of these securities in any jurisdiction
in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to
registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.

The Company recently announced that is in the process of changing its
corporate name to NewHydrogen, Inc. to better reflect its expanded focus on
green hydrogen technologies.

About BioSolar, Inc.

BioSolar is a developer of clean energy technologies including green hydrogen,
and lithium-ion battery components. The Company’s current focus is on
developing a breakthrough electrolyzer technology to lower the cost of Green
Hydrogen production. Hydrogen is the cleanest and most abundant fuel in the
universe. It is zero-emission and only produces water vapor when used.
However, hydrogen does not exist in its pure form on Earth so it must be
extracted. For centuries, scientists have known how to use electricity to
split water into hydrogen and oxygen using a device called an electrolyzer.
Electrolyzers installed behind a solar farm or wind farm can use renewable
electricity to split water, thereby producing Green Hydrogen. Unfortunately,
electrolyzers are expensive and rely on rare earth materials such as platinum
and iridium. These very expensive materials account for nearly 50% of the cost
of electrolyzers. The Company’s technology is aimed at significantly
reducing or replacing rare earth materials in electrolyzers with inexpensive
earth abundant materials to help usher in a Green Hydrogen economy that
Goldman Sachs estimates will be worth $12 trillion by 2050.
