The filing of the shelf registration allows TiVo to raise money through the sale of debt securities, preferred stock and common stock. The company did not announce a specific transaction at this time.
The company said it will use the cash raised from a sale for general corporate purposes, including research and development; sales and marketing; working capital; reducing debt; or capital expenditures.
TiVo recorded a $17 million loss in the second quarter, largely tied to an inventory write-down of parts for its standard-definition product. But the company hopes to turn its fortunes with the launch of a new high-definition DVR product this summer and the rollout of its software on cable-operator systems such as Comcast and Cox Communications.
