SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-3 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
"Given the current hard disk drive shortage and the potential for material additional demand for our enterprise and server SSD products, we filed a shelf registration statement that provides OCZ with the flexibility to augment working capital should such demand materialize," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology. "We do not require an equity financing for working capital to meet current demand levels."
Under this shelf registration process, we may, from time to time, offer and sell shares of our common stock in one or more offerings. The aggregate initial offering price of all shares of our common stock sold under this prospectus will not exceed $150,000,000.
The registration statement relating to these securities 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. The registration statement on Form S-3 may be accessed through the SEC's website at edgar.sec.gov. Any offering of the securities covered by the registration statement will only be by means of a prospectus and an accompanying prospectus supplement.
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 in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
