IRVINE, Calif., April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cryoport, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYRX, CYRXW) ("Company"), the world's leading cryogenic logistics company, announced today that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") for a rights offering to its shareholders and warrant holders of record.
The rights will be issued to all shareholders and warrant holders as of a record date to be determined by the company's board of directors. This rights offering will be made through a distribution to shareholders and warrant holders in the form of non-transferable subscription rights. Shareholders will receive the right to purchase one share of common stock for each share of common stock held on the record date, which has yet to be determined, and warrant holders will receive the right to purchase one share of common stock for each share of common stock into which the warrants held by them are exercisable at the record date; provided that the rights may only be exercised for a maximum number of shares in the aggregate. The Company will provide notice of the record date, subscription price, and maximum number of shares issuable upon exercise of the rights at such time as they are determined.
The registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC, but has not yet become effective. The rights may not be sold by the Company nor may offers to buy be accepted by the Company prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective.
Once the registration statement is declared effective, the subscription period is expected to stay open for approximately 16 days following the record date. Holders who fully exercise their subscription rights will be entitled to subscribe for additional shares of common stock only to the extent that the rights offering is undersubscribed, subject to pro rata allocation of shares among persons exercising the basic rights and over-subscription privileges.
The Company intends to use the proceeds of this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include funding for sales and marketing, and general working capital purposes.
This press release shall not and does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
