OSS Closes ATM Program; Raised $2.5 Million
ESCONDIDO, Calif., Aug. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One Stop Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSS), has closed out its at-the-market (ATM) equity offering program after raising net proceeds of $2.5 million.
“We are pleased to have completed our equity raise which further strengthens the cash position on our balance sheet,” said Steve Cooper, president and CEO. “We met our funding target and raised funds in a manner intended to minimize any impact on our stock price. Over 90% of the funds were raised through block sales to long-term investors. These include investors who receive tax incentives if they hold the stock long-term and another long-term investor. Now with the raise complete, we have terminated the ATM facility.”
As previously announced, $1.73 million worth of the shares issued under the offering were acquired by a group of individuals who invested pursuant to Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 1202 that provides a tax incentive for taxpayers to invest in small businesses. The underlying purpose of Section 1202 allows for a capital gains exemption from federal income tax on the sale of small business stock that is held for at least five years.
The shares of common stock, which were sold through Noble Capital Markets, are more fully described in a registration statement on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”) which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2019 and became effective on June 19, 2019. The final prospectus (the “Prospectus”) was filed on June 26, 2019.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy the securities discussed herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the 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.
