ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMSI) announced today that it intends to file a universal shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 and an acquisition shelf Registration Statement on Form S-4 with the Securities and Exchange Commission within the next 30 days. The company has no immediate plans or current commitments to raise capital under the universal shelf on Form S-3 or utilize the shelf Form S-4 for an acquisition transaction. The terms of any offerings under these shelf registrations will be determined at the time of the offering and disclosed in a prospectus supplement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Once declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the universal shelf on Form S-3 will permit Smith Micro to sell, in one or more public offerings, up to 4,000,000 shares of its Common Stock. The acquisition shelf registration statement on Form S-4 will, once declared effective, enable Smith Micro to issue up to 1,000,000 shares of its Common Stock in one or more acquisition transactions that the Company may make from time to time. These transactions may include the acquisition of assets, businesses or securities, whether by purchase, merger or any other form of business combination.
"Although Smith Micro does not have any current plans to raise capital or to utilize registered stock for an acquisition transaction, we believe that the universal shelf and the acquisition shelf registration statements will provide a benefit to Smith Micro and our shareholders by enabling us to take advantage of favorable market conditions in capital raising transactions and to facilitate and expedite opportunistic acquisition and growth activities," said William W. Smith, Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software.
