ATP Plans to Raise $100 Million through Private Placement

The Houston-based company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to expand its scope in certain projects, to accelerate its development activities, and for general corporate purposes.

The preferred stock will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the US absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. It will be offered in a private placement in the US pursuant to applicable exemptions under the Securities Act of 1933.
