SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - BofI Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOFI) ("BOFI"), parent company of BofI Federal Bank (the "Bank"), today announced the completion of its $50 million At-the-market common stock offering ("ATM") commenced in March 2013 and the initiation of a second $50 million ATM through the filing today of a prospectus supplement with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") under BOFI's existing effective shelf registration statement. The equity distribution agreement for the first ATM was concluded and a new equity distribution agreement was executed today for the second ATM.
"Our first $50 million ATM was an effective tool for supporting the Bank's capital requirements and the strong organic loan and deposit growth achieved over the last sixteen months," stated Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer, who continued, "We believe that a second $50 million ATM can provide the same flexibility to secure funding as needed to support our future growth."
Under the new equity distribution agreement BOFI may, from time to time, at its discretion offer and sell shares of its common stock having an aggregate value of up to $50 million through Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., Raymond James & Associates, Inc. and Sterne Agee & Leach, Inc. ("Distribution Agents"). BofI intends to use the net proceeds from this offering, if any, for general corporate purposes, which may include repayments or repurchase of debt. Sales of common stock, if any, through the Distribution Agents, will be made directly on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, or in negotiated transactions through a market maker other than on an exchange, or other transactions that are deemed to be "at-the-market offerings" as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933 (Act). Sales of common stock, if any, shall be at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices, or at negotiated prices and/or any other method permitted by the Act.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor may there be any sale of BOFI's common stock in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities law of any state or jurisdiction.
