NEW YORK, March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OnDeck® (ONDK), the leader in online lending for small business, announced today that it had filed a universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC. While the company has no current plans to issue securities under the new registration statement, the company believes it will provide more timely and efficient access to the capital markets if the company decides to issue securities in the future. The company also believes the registration statement will provide increased financial flexibility and streamline the offering process for general corporate purposes and possible strategic and other opportunities that may require additional capital.
Once the registration statement has been declared effective by the SEC, subject to market conditions and other factors, OnDeck may from time to time issue various types of securities, including common stock, preferred stock, depositary shares, warrants, debt securities, subscription rights and units, or any combination of such securities, up to an aggregate amount of $225 million, through one or more methods of distribution. The terms of any offering under the registration statement will be established at the time of such offering and will be made solely by means of a prospectus and an accompanying prospectus supplement relating to that offering.
The registration statement has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. These securities 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.
