THE COLONY, Texas, May 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:PZZI) (the "Company") today announced that it has filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The shelf registration statement, if and when declared effective, will permit the Company, from time to time, to offer and sell up to $3.0 million of its common stock in one or more public offerings, subject to market conditions and the capital requirements of the Company. All of the common stock subject to the registration statement is solely for offer and sale by the Company. There are no selling stockholders. The Company currently anticipates that the net proceeds from any sale of its common stock under the shelf registration will be used primarily to continue developing new Company-owned Pie Five restaurants in the Dallas - Fort Worth metropolitan area and to initiate the development of new Company-owned Pie Five restaurants in other metropolitan markets. The Company also may use net proceeds from any sale of its common stock under the shelf registration for other working capital and general corporate purposes. 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.
