Initial Public Offering
On February 10, 2004, we consummated our initial public offering with the sale of 2,160,000 shares of common stock. On March 12, 2004, we sold an additional 324,000 shares of common stock in connection with the exercise, by the underwriters, of the full over-allotment option. All of the shares of common stock sold to the public were sold at a price of $7.75 per share. The aggregate gross proceeds from the initial public offering were approximately $19.3 million. The net proceeds to us from the offering were approximately $15.5 million. We used all of the net proceeds received from the initial public offering in 2004 to repay $5.7 million on our revolving credit agreement, $0.9 million to redeem outstanding warrants, $0.9 million to repay subordinated debt and $8.0 million for capital expenditures. Pending use of the proceeds, we invested in short-term, investment-grade interest bearing instruments.
In connection with our initial public offering, $4.9 million in principal amount of subordinated convertible debentures automatically converted into 653,331 shares of common stock at a fixed exercise price of $7.50 per share. Our Class A and Class B common stock was converted into shares of our new common stock on a one to one basis, excluding fractional shares, and $1.9 million of related redemption obligations were terminated. We have registered the common stock issued in connection with the conversion of the subordinated convertible debentures.
In connection with our initial public offering, we sold to the representatives of the underwriters and their designees warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 216,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price equal to $12.7875 per share, subject to antidilution adjustments, for a purchase price of $0.0001 per warrant for the warrants. The warrant holders may exercise the warrants as to all or any lesser number of the underlying shares of common stock at any time during the four-year period commencing on February 10, 2005. In addition, we are required for a five year period, (i) at the request of a majority of the warrant holders, to use our best efforts to file one registration statement, at our expense, covering the sale of the shares of common stock underlying the warrants and (ii) at the request of any holders of warrants, to file additional registration statements covering the shares of common stock underlying the warrants at the expense of those holders. We are required to maintain the effectiveness of any demand registration statement for up to nine consecutive months. Except for the registration rights that we have granted to the prior holders of our subordinated convertible debentures, we generally agreed not to make any registered offering of our securities, with limited exceptions, or to include any other shares on any such demand registration statement, at any time that we are required to maintain the effectiveness of a demand registration statement, without first obtaining the consent of a majority of the holders of warrants and warrant shares that are not then held by the public or by us or other excepted persons who have a relationship with us and our affiliates. In connection with our April 8, 2005 private placement the majority of the warrant holders waived certain of these rights. In addition, we are required to include the shares of common stock underlying the warrants in any appropriate registration statement we file during the six years following the consummation of the initial public offering. We have registered the shares underlying these warrants in the registration statement relating to the
common stock and warrants issued in our April 8, 2005 private placement. Through February 3, 2007, warrants underlying 94,500 shares of common stock, including warrants underlying 54,000 shares during fiscal year 2006, had been tendered in cashless exercise transactions under which we issued 35,762 shares of common stock, including 21,366 shares during fiscal year 2006.
Our ability to meet our current and anticipated operating requirements will depend on our future performance, which, in turn, will be subject to general economic conditions and financial, business and other factors, including factors beyond our control.
