ST. LOUIS, Sept. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis, Inc. (NASDAQ:STXS), a global leader in innovative technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, today announced it is extending its registered offering of subscription warrants to the holders of common shares, as described in its prospectus supplement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on September 4, 2015 (the "Prospectus"). The warrants offering was originally scheduled to expire on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 and the Company is extending the warrants offering by two days in order to better ensure that its stockholders who hold shares in brokerage accounts receive the offering materials and have time to act on them. The subscription warrants will now be exercisable until 5:00 p.m. New York City time on Friday, October 2, 2015.
As previously announced, the Company is conducting a registered offering of subscription warrants to the holders of its common shares, which functions similarly to a rights offering. The Company declared the record date for determination of stockholders eligible to participate as September 9, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. New York City time, at which time, each holder was issued, at no charge, one subscription warrant for every four common shares held, entitling the holder to purchase one share of common stock at a price of $1.10 per share. As previously reported on Form 4 filings made with the SEC on September 24, 2015, Stereotaxis CEO William Mills and CFO Martin Stammer have fully exercised their allotted subscription warrants to purchase Stereotaxis common shares.
The warrants commenced being listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "STXSW" on September 14, 2015 and will continue through the new expiration date of October 2, 2015. In addition to being able to purchase their pro rata portion of the shares offered, based on their ownership as of the record date of the warrants offering, Stereotaxis stockholders who exercise all of their warrants may subscribe to purchase additional common shares pursuant to an over-subscription privilege, subject to certain limitations and subject to allotment, as described in the Prospectus. No fractional subscription warrants will be distributed and no fractional shares will be issued, pursuant to the warrants offering. Any fractional warrants issuable, pursuant to the warrants offering, resulting from the number of shares owned as of the record date or fractional shares issuable, pursuant to the over-subscription, resulting from prorations or other limitations, will be eliminated by rounding down to the nearest whole warrant or whole share.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation, or 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 of the securities under the securities law of such state or jurisdiction. A shelf registration statement on Form S-3, pursuant to which the warrants are being issued, was filed with the SEC on November 27, 2013 and declared effective on December 11, 2013. The warrants offering is being made only by means of the Prospectus together with a base prospectus filed with the registration statement. Copies of the Prospectus and base prospectus, which contain further details regarding the warrants offering, will be provided to all stockholders, as of the record date.
Holders of Stereotaxis' shares who hold their shares in "street name" at a brokerage firm, bank or similar organization, like the vast majority of Stereotaxis stockholders, may direct any questions about the warrants offering to the broker or bank at the number identified in the offering materials mailed to the holders. Stockholders who hold their shares directly may contact the warrants agent, Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, Inc. at (855) 300-4994.
