Cemtrex Withdraws Form S-3 Registration Statement, Maintains Plan to Pursue Traditional Financing in Near Future
May 20, 2016
FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 20, 2016 — Cemtrex Inc., (CETX), a world leading industrial and manufacturing solutions company, announced that the Company has withdrawn its Form S-3 registration statement that it filed with the SEC on April 12, 2016 after determining it was unlikely the Company would meet the eligibility requirements. The Registration Statement did not become effective and no securities under the Registration Statement have been sold.
The Company is still exploring traditional debt & equity financings to raise funds for planned acquisitions and to strengthen the Company’s balance sheet. The company has identified several attractive acquisition opportunities that would be synergistic and accretive to its existing business. This follows Cemtrex’s decision to abandon its pursuit of the acquisition of an industrial air filtration company previously announced last year in order to pursue more attractive prospects. With roughly $3.3 million of cash on its balance sheet as of March 31, 2016, the Company is positioned well to move forward on many opportunities.
Commenting on the strategy, Cemtrex’s Chairman and CEO, Saagar Govil stated, “As we grow revenues and the profitability of the Company, we become eligible for stronger, more traditional financing structures and thus can reward the owners of the Company’s equity. We are taking the necessary steps to have attractive financing options in place for the future despite changing course from the S-3.”
Reflecting the Company’s recent 32% and 39% quarterly Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA increases for the three months ended March 31, 2016, Cemtrex expects significant continued momentum in its underlying business, complemented by its M&A activities.
