ZEPHYR COVE, NV, (July 30, 2018) – VirnetX Holding Corporation (NYSE AMERICAN: VHC), a leader in Internet communication security software and technology, announced today that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which is intended to replace its current Form S-3 registration statement expiring on September 2, 2018.
VirnetX’s current Form S-3 registration statement was declared effective on September 2, 2015. As of July 17, 2018, the company has used approximately 40% of the total $100 million value of securities subject to the current Form S-3 registration statement. The remaining amount subject to the current registration statement may not be used after September 2, 2018. The new registration statement, when declared effective by the SEC, will allow the company to offer up to $100 million of securities.
“The new registration statement will allow us to continue to access the capital markets in order to fund the company to achieve our strategic objectives,” said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. “It is both prudent and fiscally responsible to have financing options open to the company and we expect that refreshing this universal registration statement will allow us to raise funds if necessary.”
VirnetX has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) with the SEC which has not yet been declared effective. The securities subject to the registration statement may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall 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 state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction. Any offer of these securities will be made solely by means of the prospectus included in the registration statement and any applicable prospectus supplement that may be issued with respect to such offering. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus (including any prospectus supplement thereto) in the registration statement and other documents the VirnetX has filed with the SEC for more complete information about VirnetX and the offering. You may get these documents for free by visiting EDGAR on the SEC Web site at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, VirnetX will arrange to send you the prospectus if you request it by calling (775) 548-1785
