WEST BABYLON, N.Y., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Power REIT (AMEX: PW), an infrastructure focused real-estate investment trust, today reported that on May 11, 2012 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) declared effective Power REIT's $100 million shelf registration statement on Form S-3.
Power REIT's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said, "This represents another milestone for Power REIT and its shareholders. Management has been working over the past 12 months to position the company and set the foundation for growth through acquisitions of infrastructure real-estate. We are considering a number of infrastructure investment opportunities to grow our business. This shelf offering provides us with added flexibility in seeking to efficiently access capital when needed to support our investment strategy, which is intended to increase shareholder value and dividends per share."
The company's infrastructure-focused business plan builds upon its historical ownership of the Pittsburgh & West Virginia Railroad, which is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Power REIT. The company's business and growth plan was previously described in the investor presentation that was released on May 7, 2012 and which is available on our website under "Investor Relations" at www.pwreit.com.
Under the Form S-3, the Company may from time to time issue any combination of common equity or common equity linked securities (warrants, options or units) in any amounts up to an aggregate of $100 million. The net proceeds of offerings are intended to be used to fund new acquisitions consistent with Power REIT's business plan. The Company does not have any immediate plans to issue securities pursuant to the Form S-3. The terms of any offering of securities made pursuant to the shelf registration statement will be determined at the time of the offering and disclosed in a prospectus supplement filed with the SEC and distributed to prospectus investors.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any offer or sale of securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the laws of any such state. Any offer of securities pursuant to the shelf registration statement shall be made solely by means of the prospectus that forms a part of the shelf registration statement and the prospectus supplement relating to the offer.
