Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. (ECD Ovonics) today announced the filing of a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). After the shelf registration statement is declared effective by the SEC, ECD Ovonics will be able to offer and sell up to an aggregate of $300 million of common stock, senior and subordinated debt securities, subscription rights, stock purchase contracts or stock purchase units from time to time in one or more public offerings. The terms of any such future offerings will be established at the time of such offerings.

If ECD Ovonics initiates an offering under the shelf registration statement in the future, it expects to use any net proceeds from the sale of the securities to fund its ongoing business operations and other general corporate purposes, which may include investments required to expand manufacturing capabilities. The actual use of proceeds of any such future offering will be described in a prospectus supplement to the shelf registration statement, which will be filed with the SEC at the time of such offering.

ECD Ovonics separately filed a registration statement with the SEC relating to the resale of up to 1,934,564 shares of common stock, of which 649,021 have been issued, 885,543 shares are issuable under existing Stock Option Agreements with certain senior officers and 400,000 shares are issuable upon the exercise of currently exercisable warrants. Under this resale registration statement, the selling stockholders listed in the prospectus are permitted, but are not obligated, to sell, from time to time, some or all of their respective shares covered by the prospectus.

The registration statements relating to these securities have been filed with the SEC but have not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statements become effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be a sale of these securities, in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
