08:26 EDT Wednesday, September 18, 2013

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2013) - DragonWave Inc. (the "Company") (TSX:DWI)(NASDAQ:DRWI), a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced it has priced an underwritten public offering (the "Offering") of approximately 11.9 million units (each a "Unit") at a price to the public of U.S. $2.10 per Unit, for gross proceeds of approximately U.S. $25 million. Canaccord Genuity is acting as the sole book-running manager for the Offering.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to strengthen its balance sheet, to fund working capital and for general corporate purposes.

Under the terms of the Offering, each Unit consists of one common share (each, an "Offered Share") and three quarters of one warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of U.S.$2.70 for a period of five years from the closing date, subject to acceleration and adjustment. The Offered Shares and Warrants are immediately separable. The Company will not list the Warrants on the Toronto Stock Exchange or The NASDAQ Stock Market. The Offering is expected to close on or about September 23, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and NASDAQ with respect to the Offered Shares and the shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants.

The securities described above are being offered in the United States pursuant to an effective registration statement on Form F-10, including the accompanying base prospectus forming a part thereof, as supplemented by the preliminary prospectus supplement (collectively, the "U.S. Offering Documents") and in Canada pursuant to a final prospectus supplement to a final short form base shelf prospectus dated August 29, 2013. The Form F-10 has been previously filed with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), and the final short form base shelf prospectus has been filed with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada, other than Quebec, and is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The U.S. Offering Documents are available on the SEC's web site at www.sec.gov. Copies of the U.S. Offering Documents and the final prospectus supplement relating to the Offering, when available, may be obtained from Canaccord Genuity Inc., Attn: Syndicate Department, 99 High Street, 12th Floor, Boston, MA 02110, by calling (617) 371-3900, or from the above-mentioned SEC and SEDAR websites.
