Presstek files universal shelf registration statement

Press release from the issuing company

GREENWICH, CT, - Presstek, Inc., a supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, today announced that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. When the shelf registration statement is declared effective by the SEC, over the next three years the company will have the option to conduct registered offerings, from time to time, of up to $30 million of common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, warrants to purchase any of these securities, depository shares, units or any combination of such securities. Specific terms of any future offering under this registration statement will be established at the time of any such offering, and will be described in a prospectus supplement that Presstek would at such time file with the SEC.

While the company does not have any immediate plans to offer or sell its securities under the shelf registration statement, it intends to use the net proceeds from any sale of securities by the company under the shelf registration statement for general corporate purposes, including, but not limited to, repayment or refinancing of indebtedness, working capital, capital expenditures and acquisitions.

A registration statement relating to the securities described above has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. Such securities may not be offered or sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time that the registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of any such 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.
