Medgenics Announces Filing of Shelf Registration
MISGAV, Israel & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Medgenics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MDGN and AIM: MEDU, MEDG) (the Company) 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 (SCUR), the Company may offer and sell from time to time in the future, in one or more offerings, common stock, warrants, rights or units consisting of any combination of the foregoing. The aggregate offering price of all securities that may be sold under the registration statement will not exceed $150,000,000.
The shelf registration statement is intended to give Medgenics additional flexibility to finance business opportunities in the future by accessing the capital markets on a timely and cost effective basis. The specifics of any future offering, along with the prices and terms of any such securities offered by the Company, will be determined at the time of any such offering and will be described in detail in a prospectus supplement filed in connection with such offering.
The shelf registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become 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. Any offering of the securities covered by the shelf registration statement will only be by means of a prospectus and an accompanying prospectus supplement.
Medgenics is developing Biopump", a proprietary tissue-based platform technology for the sustained production and delivery of therapeutic proteins using the patient's own skin biopsy for the treatment of a range of chronic diseases including anemia, hepatitis, and hemophilia, among others.
