KFAR SAVA, Israel, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that it has filed a Replacement shelf registration statement on Form F-3 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to replace the Current shelf registration statement filed in 2014, which will expire on April 4, 2017. The Replacement registration statement is subject to review by the SEC.
Similar to the Current registration statement, the Replacement registration statement, if and when declared effective by the SEC, will allow the Company the flexibility to offer and sell ordinary shares from time to time through various methods of distribution in one or more offerings up to a total amount of $80 million. In accordance with SEC rules, the Company may offer securities under the Current registration statement until the Replacement registration statement is declared effective, subject to a maximum period of 180 days. At this time, the Company has no plans to offer securities under either shelf registration statement, and any future offering would be subject to market conditions and approval by the Company's Board of Directors. Any future offering of securities covered by a shelf registration statement will be made only by means of a prospectus supplement authorized and filed by the Company.
The Replacement registration statement has been filed with the SEC but has not yet been declared effective by the SEC. The securities being registered may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, until the 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 these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under its securities laws. Any offering of the securities covered under the shelf registration statements will be made solely by means of the prospectus included in the relevant registration statement and any applicable prospectus supplement issued with respect to any offering.
