Crossroads Systems Announces Planned Rights Offering
PR Newswire

AUSTIN, Texas, May 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRDS) today announced that it plans to commence a rights offering of common stock to holders of shares of its common and preferred stock. The Company plans to make the rights offering through the distribution to its common and preferred stock holders to purchase shares of the Company's common stock at a subscription price to be determined and subject to certain protection mechanics in place to preserve the Company's ability to utilize its net operating loss carryforwards ("NOLs"). The Company expects to utilize the estimated net proceeds of the rights offering to continue to fund efforts related to the monetization of its intellectual property portfolio, including the costs of ongoing litigation and other proceedings, repayment of indebtedness, and for working capital purposes. 

The proposed rights offering will also include an over-subscription privilege, which will entitle each rights holder that exercises all of its basic subscription right in full the right to purchase additional shares of common stock that remain unsubscribed at the expiration of the rights offering, subject to certain limitations.

The Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a registration statement on Form S-1 covering the transaction, and the distribution of rights and commencement of the rights offering is expected to occur promptly following the effectiveness of that registration statement. The Company anticipates that the record date and the subscription price will be determined closer to the time that the SEC declares the Company's registration statement 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 in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
