Local Corporation Files Shelf Registration Statement

  Local Corporation Files Shelf Registration Statement        Intended to Replace Recently Expired Shelf Registration Statement  Business Wire  IRVINE, Calif. -- June 2, 2014  Local Corporation (NASDAQ: LOCM), a leading local advertising technology company, today announced that it has filed a new shelf registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Once effective, this shelf registration would allow the company to issue various types of securities, including common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, and warrants, from time to time, up to an aggregate of $40 million. The new shelf registration replaces the company’s prior shelf registration, which expired in April of 2014.  “We believe that replacing our expiring shelf registration will allow us continued financial flexibility, if and when a need or opportunity should arise,” said Fred Thiel, Local Corporation chairman and CEO. “We presently have no plans to offer any securities under the shelf registration, or otherwise, but we believe it is prudent to always be prepared.”  A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
