LAKE FOREST, Calif., Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: QTWW), a global leader in natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, today announced that it has filed a new shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Committee (the "SEC"). This new shelf registration statement will replace the Company's existing shelf registration statement that expires on September 29, 2014.
The Company does not have any immediate plans to offer or sell the securities under this registration statement although this shelf registration statement may be used in connection with the issuance of shares of common stock upon exercise of outstanding warrants that were previously issued under the expiring shelf registration statement.
After the shelf registration statement becomes effective, this shelf registration statement would allow the Company to issue, from time to time, various types of securities, including common stock, preferred stock, debt, warrants and rights, or any combination thereof. The specific terms of any securities offered will be described in a related prospectus supplement to be filed separately with the SEC at the time of the offering.
The registration statement relating to these securities was filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. The information in the registration statement, and the prospectus contained therein, is incomplete and may be changed. These securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy the securities be accepted, prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective and a prospectus supplement is filed relating to the particular offering of securities. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell the securities or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities. Any offering of the securities will be made solely by means of the prospectus contained in the registration statement, when effective, and an accompanying prospectus supplement relating to that offering. A copy of the prospectus included in the registration statement, and any prospectus supplement relating to an offering of the securities in the future, may be obtained on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov or by contacting Quantum's Investor Relations department.
