The company proposes to sell, from time to time, up to $350 million of its common stock, approximately $100 million of which would be sold by Fusion-io and the rest by its shareholders.
Fusion-io says the remaining shares will be sold by existing stockholders, including any shares issued to the underwriters to cover over-allotments.
According to the filing, Fusion-io will not receive proceeds from the sale by shareholders.
