NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Fluidigm today filed a shelf registration to offer from time to time up to $100 million in securities.
In its Form S-3 filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the South San Francisco, Calif.-based firm said that proceeds would go toward working capital and other general corporate purposes. A portion may also be used to acquire and invest in complementary products, technologies, or businesses, though Fluidigm added that it currently is not involved in any commitments or negotiations for such transactions.
Fluidigm President and CEO Gajus Worthington said at an investment conference in January that the firm is "quite interested" in acquisitions that would complement its portfolio.
In the SEC filing today, it said that securities that may be offered include any combinations of common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, and warrants.
