BELLEVUE, Wash., July 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motricity (Nasdaq:MOTR) today announced that a record date of July 23, 2012 (the "Record Date") has been set for Motricity's planned rights offering (the "Rights Offering"). On December 2, 2011, Motricity filed a registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") with respect to the Rights Offering, which was subsequently amended via amendments on Form S-1, including Amendment No. 5 to Form S-3 on Form S-1, filed with the SEC on July 9, 2012 (the "Registration Statement").
Stockholders of Motricity's common stock as of the Record Date will receive one transferable subscription right for every one share of common stock owned as of that date, subject to the Registration Statement being declared effective by the SEC. Each subscription right, subject to certain limitations, will entitle the holder to purchase a unit consisting of shares of our Redeemable Series J Preferred Stock (the "Series J preferred stock") to be created and warrants to purchase a share of Motricity's common stock (the "common stock warrants"), at a subscription price of $0.65 per unit. The number of shares of Series J preferred stock and common stock warrants that comprise the unit, as well as the term and the exercise price of the common stock warrants and the dividend rate on and liquidation preference of the Series J preferred stock, will be determined by our Board of Directors based on a recommendation by its pricing committee prior to commencement of the Rights Offering.
The information in the Registration Statement is not complete and may be changed. We may not sell these securities until the Registration Statement filed with the SEC is effective. Neither the Registration Statement nor this release is an offer to sell these securities and it is not a solicitation of an offer to buy or sell these securities in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted. The securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the Registration Statement becomes effective.
