Black Diamond has filed a so-called shelf registration statement with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, announcing its intention to offer shares, warrants or other types of securities worth up to $200,000 in connection with the acquisition of new assets. That would include the sale of up to 7.5 million of its own shares. It's not clear whether a deal is in the making, but the company has repeatedly said that it is actively looking for acquisitions, partly to take advantage of $172.4 million in net operating loss carryforwards. The focus of the hunt is on “high-quality, durable cash flow-producing assets potentially unrelated to the outdoor industry” in order to diversify its business, BD recalled in its latest announcement on this yesterday, adding that it is primarily interested in U.S.-based assets, although it may also evaluate investment opportunities elsewhere.
