{{moment(articledata.cdate)}} @{{" ","")}} comment

%ShelfOfferings (or shelf registrations as they’re sometimes called) have seem to making an appearance more frequently when sifting through headlines. This term may be new to some people, but essential it is a type of offering that allows an issuer some flexibility (time-wise) to offer securities.

According to Investopedia, “a shelf offering is a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) provision that allows an equity issuer (such as a corporation) to register a new issue of securities without having to sell the entire issue at once. The issuer can instead sell portions of the issue over a three-year period without re-registering the security or incurring penalties.”

Just today, it was announced that %ApyxMedical ($APYX) filed for a $100 million mixed shelf. According to the release, the filing covers the sale of the company plans to use the net proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

Traders were extremely excited about the news as they snatched up shares and pushed the price up to $1.58/share (+12.86%) at the session high (at the time of writing).
