Item 8.01 – Other Events
On Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 4:00 p.m., the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) declared effective Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc.’s (the “Company”) shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed on May 13, 2019. The Company has no current commitments or plans to sell securities under the new registration statement, and it was filed as part of its ongoing commitment to evaluate all options to enhance shareholder value, if it should desire and be in a position to opportunistically access the capital markets at a future date.
Under the shelf registration, the Company may offer and sell, from time to time, up to 2,500,000 shares of its common stock. So long as the Company’s public float remains below $75 million, an offering under this registration statement will be limited to a value of not more than one-third of the public float within any 12-month period.
The terms of any securities offered under the registration statement, and the intended use of the net proceeds resulting therefrom, would be established at the times of the offerings, if any, and would be described in prospectus supplements filed with the SEC at the times of the offerings.
This Form 8-K 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 offering of the securities covered under the shelf registration statement will be made solely by means of a prospectus and an accompanying prospectus supplement relating to that offering
This Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements” which are based largely on the Company’s expectations and are subject to various business risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond the Company’s control. Forward-looking statements generally are identifiable by use of the words such as “believe”, “expects”, “intends”, “anticipate”, “could potentially”, “plans to”, “estimates”, “projects”, and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, whether we will actually effect an offering of our common stock pursuant to the registration statement, and the Company’s belief that as part of its ongoing commitment to evaluate all options to enhance shareholder value, it should be in a position to opportunistically access the capital markets. These forward-looking statements are intended to qualify for the safe harbors from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. While the Company believes the expectations reflected in this news release are reasonable, it can give no assurance such expectations will prove to be correct. There are a variety of factors which could cause future outcomes to differ materially from those described in this release, including, without limitation, the other risk factors and business considerations described under the heading “Risk Factors” in our 2018 Form 10-K, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2019, and the Registration Statement on Form S-3. The Company makes no commitment to disclose any revisions to forward-looking statements, or any facts, events or circumstances after the date hereof that bear upon forward-looking statements.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
