    Unreferenced date December 2009 Shelf registration is a process authorized by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission under Rule 415 that allows a single Securities Act of 1933 registration document to be filed by a company that permits the issuance of multiple security finance securities . Form S 3 issuers may use shelf registration to register securities that will be offered on an immediate, continuous, or even on a delayed basis. Other special types of securities, such as those used in a business combination, Mortgage backed securities, and those of a closed end fund . In July 2005 the SEC put in place automatic registration shelf filings. This filing is a relaxed registration process that applies to well known, seasoned issuers WKSIs, pronounced Wiksy , and covers debt securities, common stock, preferred stock and warrants, among other various instruments. A WKSI is a company that has filed all annual, quarterly and current reports in a timely manner, and either has a greater than 700 million market capitalization or has issued 1 billion in registered debt offerings over the past three years. Shelf registration is a registration of a new issue which can be prepared up to three years in advance, so that the issue can be offered quickly as soon as funds are needed or market conditions are favorable. For example, current market conditions in the housing market are not favorable for a specific firm to issue a public offering. In this case, it may not be a good time for a firm in the sector e.g. a home builder to come out with its second offering because many investors will be pessimistic about companies working in that sector. By using shelf registration, the firm can fulfill all registration related procedures beforehand and go to market quickly when conditions become more favorable. Finally, firms often use universal shelf filings and choose between debt and equity offerings based on the prevailing relative market conditions.

  1. Shelf angle

    In masonry veneer building construction, a shelf angle is a steel angle which supports the weight of brick or stone veneer and transfers that weight onto the main structure of the building. Background Traditional masonry buildings had thick load bearing walls that supported the weight of the building. Openings in these load bearing walls for elements such as door s and window s were typically small and spanned by lintels or arches . Modern buildings The invention of skeleton frame buildings made it possible to have wide openings such as ribbon windows extending across most or all of the building facade . In most such buildings, brick, stone, or other masonry cladding is often a single wythe of material also called a veneer . The only way to support the weight of this veneer across a wide opening is by providing a shelf angle on which the masonry bears. ref http Brick Industry Association, Technical Note 21B, 2006 ref The shelf angle, in turn, is attached to major elements of the building structure such as floor beams or structural columns . Shelf angles are also called relief angles . In the United States, common sizes for steel shelf angles include L 3 x 3 x 1 4 and L 4 x 4 x 1 4 . In addition to supporting the weight of masonry, shelf angles create logical locations for movement joints. ref http Brick Industry Association, Technical Note 18A, 2006 ref References Reflist See also cite book last Ramsey first Charles authorlink coauthors Hoke, John Ray, Jr. ed title Architectural Graphics Standards 10th Edition publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. year 2000 location pages url doi id isbn 0 471 34816 3 DEFAULTSORT Shelf Angle Category Masonry Category Building materials Category Construction terminology ...   more details

  1. Shelf corporation

    confused Shell corporation Companies law A shelf corporation , shelf company , or aged corporation , is a company or corporation that has had no activity. It was created and left with no activity metaphorically put on the shelf to age . The company can then be sold to a person or group of persons who wish to start a company without going through all the procedures of creating a new one. Common reasons for buying a shelf corporation include To save the time involved in taking the steps to create a new corporation. To gain the opportunity to bid on contracts. Some jurisdiction s require that a company be in business for a certain length of time to have this ability. To show corporate longevity in order to attract consumers or investors. To gain access to corporate Credit finance credit . These reasons are open to criticism. Many years ago, it would take months to properly incorporate a business. However, it is now quite easy, at least in Australia , Canada , the United States and Western Europe , to do so. In fact, it can now be done in as little as a couple of hours in some jurisdictions. A corporation might end up on the shelf precisely because of a bad business history. It is questionable whether a shelf corporation improves access to capital, since creditors and investors look into a company s history as part of due diligence .
