EMCORE Announces Filing of Shelf Registration Statement
EMCORE Corporation (NASDAQ:EMKR) today announced that it has filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
Under the shelf registration statement, once declared effective by the SEC, EMCORE may offer and sell from time to time, in one or more offerings, common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, warrants, rights to purchase any of the foregoing securities, or units comprised of two or more of these classes or series of securities. The aggregate offering price of all securities that may be sold under the registration statement will not exceed $30,000,000.
The shelf registration statement is intended to give EMCORE additional flexibility to finance the business by accessing the capital markets on a timely and cost effective basis. Any offering of the securities covered by the shelf registration statement will be by means of a prospectus and an accompanying prospectus supplement, which will describe in detail the specifics of any future offering, including with the prices and terms of any securities offered by EMCORE. There is currently no schedule for any offering of the securities covered by the shelf registration statement and no underwriter has been engaged in connection with any such potential offering.
The shelf registration statement is not yet effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the shelf registration statement becomes effective. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
