The sale resulted in net proceeds to CTC of $10 million, and an option until June 30 to invest an additional $40 million.

Under the terms of the financing, CTC sold 13.3 million shares of common stock for $10 million. Under the option, Credit Suisse may acquire up to an additional 45.5 million shares for $40 million.

"We are pleased that Credit Suisse has increased its equity stake in CTC," says Benton Wilcoxon, CEO of CTC.
