Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, we currently intend to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes. We have not determined the amounts we plan to spend or the timing of these expenditures. As a result, our management will have broad discretion to allocate the net proceeds from this offering. Pending application of the net proceeds as described above, we intend to invest the net proceeds of the offering in short-term, investment-grade, interest-bearing securities. We may set forth additional information on the use of net proceeds from the sale of securities we offer under this prospectus in a prospectus supplement relating to the specific offering. We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of stock by the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders will receive any and all proceeds from the sale of stock sold by such selling stockholders.
For the sale of our managed services, we mainly compete against select telecommunications carriers and videoconferencing equipment resellers and integrators. These carrier competitors, which include British Telecom (BT)/BT Conferencing, AT&T, Verizon and Telus, mainly compete on the basis of offering network and a converged solution of data, voice and video. Other competitors have evolved from the audio/visual integration industry or videoconferencing equipment resale industry, including York Telecom, Providea, BCS Global and AVI-SPL (through its acquisition of iFormata, announced in January 2012). Additionally, the market has attracted some VC-backed or other private start-ups that offer hosted bridging solutions, including Blue Jeans Networks and Vidtel. We view the entry of new players into the market as a net positive, validating the industry, while creating awareness around managed services and viral adoption of video communications. It is important to note that our competition offers a subset of what we offer from a managed services perspective, through our OpenVideo TM cloud. Glowpoint differentiates itself based on its full suite of superior cloud managed video services delivered with a primary focus on video and resulting superior expertise, flexibility, and responsiveness to customer demands. These services are unique based on our intellectual property, user interfaces and capabilities that Glowpoint has built over the years. Glowpoint has partnered with a number of would-be competitors with the intent of selling our managed video services to be delivered over their networks or as a complement to their offerings.
Glowpoint, Inc. is a provider of cloud managed video services. We are dedicated to providing hosted, managed and cloud based services to enterprise users of video conferencing and telepresence and also offer public video room rentals. Our services, delivered via our cloud-based OpenVideo TM
platform, are securely accessible via any network (private or public) and are technology-agnostic. The Company pursues its recurring revenue business model by delivering services to more than 500 different enterprises in over 35 countries supporting thousands of video endpoints, immersive telepresence rooms, and infrastructure for business-quality, real-time, two-way visual communications. Glowpoint’s managed services solve the challenges associated with achieving consistent high-quality video experiences and controlling the total cost of ownership related to technology and support, while increasing the return on investment (ROI) of its end users’ video equipment by providing seamless access to video equipment outside of their immediate enterprise network. Glowpoint provides wholesale programs and private-labeled resale options for hardware manufacturers, network operators and systems integrators seeking to offer video services as a value-added addition to their collaboration and communications offerings. The Company maintains multiple strategic partnerships that are core to its global go to market strategy. Glowpoint was formed by the merger of All Communications Corporation and View Tech, Inc. in May 2000, and acquired Affinity VideoNet, Inc., a provider of public video room rentals and managed services, on October 1, 2012. Our principal executive offices are located at 430 Mountain Avenue, Suite 301, Murray Hill, NJ 07974, and our telephone number is (973) 855-3411. Our web site address is www.glowpoint.com.
