SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neonode Inc. (Nasdaq:NEON) announced today that it has filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). When declared effective by the SEC, the registration statement will allow Neonode to issue up to 5 million shares of common stock over the course of 3 years.
In addition, Neonode separately has filed a registration statement covering 2.5 million shares and 2.5 million warrant shares for resale by an institutional investor as previously announced in connection with Neonode's recent private placement.
"We have no plans to raise additional capital in the foreseeable future. We are filing a shelf purely for corporate governance reasons, so that Neonode has financial flexibility in line with comparable companies," said Thomas Eriksson, Chief Executive Officer of Neonode.
After the shelf registration statement becomes effective, Neonode may offer and sell shares of common stock covered by the registration statement through one or more methods of distribution, subject to market conditions and Neonode's capital needs. The terms of any offering under the shelf registration statement will be established at the time of such offering and will be described in a prospectus supplement filed with the SEC prior to completion of the offering.
Registration statements relating to the securities described in this press release have been filed with the SEC but have not yet become effective. The securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the respective registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction. Any offering of the securities covered under the registration statements will be made solely by means of a prospectus and any accompanying prospectus supplement relating to that offer.
