NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (Nasdaq: HMNY) (“HMNY”) announced today that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Under the shelf registration statement, once the SEC declares it effective, HMNY may offer and sell, from time to time, up to $1.2 billion of a variety of its equity and debt securities over a period of three years.
Under the shelf registration statement, HMNY will have the flexibility to publicly offer and sell from time to time common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, warrants, subscription rights, units or any combination of such securities. HMNY may periodically offer one or more of these securities in amounts, at prices and on terms announced, if and when the securities are ever offered. The specific terms of any potential future offerings, along with the intended use of proceeds of any such securities offered by HMNY, will be described in a prospectus supplement at the time of any such offering.
The registration statement is intended to provide HMNY additional flexibility to finance its growth, including the growth of MoviePass Inc. (HMNY’s movie theater subscription service), MoviePass Ventures LLC (HMNY’s movie investment subsidiary), MoviePass Films LLC (HMNY’s original content production subsidiary), and Moviefone™ (HMNY’s media content advertising platform).
HMNY’s ability to avail itself of this shelf registration statement for the purpose of selling its equity securities will depend, in part, on HMNY obtaining the affirmative vote of its stockholders at its upcoming special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) to increase its authorized common stock or effect a combination of its outstanding common stock.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any offer for sale, or solicitation of an offer to buy, any of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities law of any such jurisdiction. Any offering of the securities covered by the shelf registration statement will be made solely by means of a prospectus and an accompanying prospectus supplement relating to that offering. A copy of the prospectus included in the registration statement may be obtained on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
