April 16 Amyris Biotechnologies Inc filed with
U.S. securities regulators on Friday to raise up to $100
million in an initial public offering of common stock.
The Emeryville, California-based company said it plans to
list its stock under the symbol "AMRS," but it did not reveal
the number of shares it plans to sell.
Molycorp said it intends to use the proceeds from the
offering for capital expenditures related to the establishment
of production facilities, and general corporate purposes.
The company told the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission in a preliminary prospectus that J.P. Morgan
Securities, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Itau USA Securities
and Thomas Weisel Partners were underwriting the IPO.
