Additionally, the company's underwriters have been granted a 30-day purchase option for up to an additional 1.125 million shares to cover over-allotments.
3D Systems said it plans to use the issue's estimated net proceeds of $237 million for acquisitions, working capital, and for "general corporate purposes." It will receive no monies from the stock being sold by existing shareholders.
Needham & Company is the sole book-running manager of the issue. Cannacord Financial's Genuity unit and Piper Jaffray are the co-lead managers. The offering is expected to close on May 15.
