The first S-3 Registration Statement registers for resale certain previously issued securities and shares underlying previously issued equity awards. The filing of this S-3 is administrative in nature and is intended to convert the prior registration statement on Form S-1 into a registration statement on Form S-3 so that BlackSky can incorporate by reference all future SEC filings into this S-3. No new share issuances are being made as part of this S-3 filing.
The second S-3 is a shelf registration statement that provides the Company with the ability to issue various types of securities including common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, depositary shares, warrants, subscription rights, purchase contracts, and/or units in one or more future offerings. The Company filed this shelf registration statement with the SEC to provide the Company with flexibility to access the capital markets in the future if circumstances arose that make the issuance of securities advantageous to the Company and its stockholders. The Company believes it is prudent to file the shelf registration statement as a matter of good corporate governance. No new share issuances are being made as part of this second S-3 filing.
For more information on the S-3 filings, please see the BlackSky’s investor relations webpage or the SEC’s website.
