LDR Holding Corp. could be poised to raise another $150 million in capital, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission


The medical device company (Nasdaq: LDRH) went public in 2013, when it finished the year with a net loss of $27.9 million. The company's stock was trading at just over $32 per share on 


Thursday afternoon


The funding would come from a combination of stock and other securities, though the Austin American-Statesman reports the company is not raising funds currently and management completed the 


filing, which stays valid for three years, to expedite the process when it does begin to raise funds


The filing said any new capital would used for "general corporate purposes," a broad term that includes uses such as capital expenditures, repayment or refinancing of debt, acquisitions and 


other corporate expenses


LDR reported a net loss of $2 million on $35.9 million in revenue for the third quarter. Through the first nine months of 2014 it has a loss of $7.8 million on $101.7 million in revenue
