HOUSTON, May 13, 2009 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- Rosetta Resources Inc. ("Rosetta")(Nasdaq:ROSE) announced that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
Once the registration statement is declared effective by the SEC, the Company may, from time to time, issue up to an aggregate of $500 million of debt, equity or other types of securities through one or more methods of distribution. Although the Company does not have any current commitments or intentions to sell securities, the terms of any future offering would be established at the time of offering subject to market conditions. Any offering of securities covered by the universal shelf registration statement will be made only by means of a written prospectus and prospectus supplement.
A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC, 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 or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
