Wave Systems Files $20 Million Shelf Registration Statement to Replace Existing 
Shelf Registration Statement 
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/09/13 --   Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:
WAVX) (www.wave.com) announced today that it has filed a $20 million
shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC). The filing replaces an existing $30
million shelf registration statement that became effective July 22,
2011. The filing would facilitate Wave's ability to raise capital
over the next three years. Wave has no current plans for the sale of
the securities registered under this shelf registration statement.
The terms of any offering by Wave under the registration statement
would be established at the time of the offering and would be
described in a prospectus supplement. 
Once declared effective by the SEC, the shelf registration statement
would permit Wave to sell, from time to time over three years, up to
$20 million in aggregate value of its Class A common stock, preferred
stock, warrants to purchase its Class A common stock or preferred
stock, or a combination thereof. 
The registration statement has been filed with the SEC, but has not
yet become effective. Any offers, solicitations of offers to buy, or
sales of these securities will only be made once the shelf
registration statement has been declared effective by the SEC,
including any prospectuses and prospectus supplements. These
securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted prior
to the time that the registration statement becomes effective. This
press release is not an offer to sell the securities covered by the
shelf registration statement and it is not soliciting an offer to buy
those securities in any state where the offer or sale is not
permitted. The registration statement on Form S-3 may be accessed
through the SEC's website at http://edgar.sec.gov.
