U.S. Geothermal Inc. Reestablishes Share Purchase Agreement With Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (Reuters - News Release)

U.S. Geothermal Inc. announced today that it has signed a new purchase agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (LPC), a Chicago-based institutional investor. It may provide up to $10 million of equity capital over the agreement's 30-month term.
