Austin Business Journal

Crossroads Systems Inc. is looking for another capital injection after filing for a proposed public offering of as much as $12 million in series H cumulative perpetual preferred stock options


The Austin-based IT company intends to use the proceeds of the offering to fund its efforts to monetize its patent portfolio, "including the costs of ongoing litigation and other proceedings" and to pay down debts, according to a company filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission


Crossroads Systems also said in its filing that it could use proceeds to fund the acquisition of other technologies or businesses, but said that no specific plans or negotiations to that effect currently exist


The company's series H stock would be traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol CRDSH, according to a company announcement


News of the offering sent Crossroads common shares sharply lower in early trading Monday, down 8 percent, or 19 cents, to $2.15 per share


Earlier in September, Crossroads Systems shares took a hit as the company reported a 25 percent decline in third quarter revenue
