The mobile marketing and advertising company sold 13,469,661 shares of its common stock along with warrants to purchase an additional 6,734,831 shares of common stock for 49 cents a share. Each warrant is exercisable for five years at an exercise price of 66 cents per share. The offer is expected to close on or around Feb. 4, the company said in a statement.

Augme says it plans to use the funds for general corporate purposes.
