RGS Energy Files a $200 Million Universal Shelf Registration Statement
Mixed Security Registration Expected to Allow Access to Capital Markets From Time to Time to Support Growth
LOUISVILLE, Colo., January 31, 2014 – RGS Energy (NASDAQ: RSOL), a nationwide leader of turnkey solar energy solutions for residential, commercial, and utility customers, has filed a Form S-3 universal shelf registration statement (the “Shelf Registration”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Shelf Registration is intended to provide flexibility to publicly offer and sell from time to time up to $200 million debt securities, common stock, preferred stock, warrants and other securities or any combination of such securities.
The Shelf Registration must be declared effective by the SEC before any securities may be offered and sold. Following effectiveness of the Shelf Registration, RGS Energy may periodically offer the securities in amounts, at prices, and on terms to be announced when, and if, the securities are offered. RGS Energy presently has no intention to sell any securities and has not identified any specific use of proceeds which may become available if and when such securities are sold. RGS Energy currently intends to use the proceeds from the future sale of securities under the Shelf Registration for general corporate purposes, which may include additions to working capital, financing of capital expenditures, repayment of existing or future indebtedness, and future acquisitions and strategic investment opportunities. The terms of any securities offered under the Shelf Registration, and the intended use of the net proceeds resulting therefrom, will be established at the times of the offerings and will be described in prospectus supplements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission at the times of the offerings.
A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities of RGS Energy, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
A free copy of the registration statement and the accompanying prospectus may be obtained by directing a request to 833 W. South Boulder Road, Louisville, Colorado 80027, Attention: Secretary, RGS Energy.
