DLH Announces Filing of New Shelf Registration Statement
ATLANTA, May 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DLH Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: DLHC) (“DLH” or the “Company”), a leading provider of digital transformation, systems engineering and integration, and science research and development solutions to federal agencies, today announced that it has filed a new shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to replace its expiring shelf registration statement. The registration statement was filed on May 30, 2023 and will become effective upon successful review by the SEC.
If and when it is declared effective, the registration statement will allow DLH to offer and sell, from time to time, up to $100 million of its equity securities; however, there are no current plans to do so. The Company did not issue any securities under the expired registration statement. Like many issuers, DLH filed the shelf registration statement to provide it with flexibility to access capital markets if circumstances arise that would make the sale of securities advantageous to the Company.
These securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. Following the effectiveness of the shelf registration statement, DLH may periodically offer one or more of the registered securities in amounts, at prices, and on terms to be announced when, and if, the securities are offered. The terms of any securities offered under the registration statement, and the intended use of the net proceeds resulting therefrom, will be established at the times of the offerings and will be described in prospectus supplements filed with the SEC at the times of the offerings.
This press release is not an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction. Any offer of securities covered by the registration statement may be made solely by means of the prospectus included in the registration statement and a related prospectus supplement containing specific information about the terms of any such offering.
DLH (NASDAQ:DLHC) delivers improved health and national security readiness solutions for federal programs through science research and development, systems engineering and integration, and digital transformation. The Company’s experts in public health, performance evaluation, and health operations solve the complex problems faced by civilian and military customers alike, leveraging digital transformation, artificial intelligence, advanced analytics, cloud-based applications, telehealth systems, and more.
