$NCLH A shelf offering allows a company to register a new issue with the SEC but allowing for a three year period to sell the offering instead of all-at-once. This lets a company adjust the timing of the sales of a new issue to take advantage of more favorable market conditions should they arise in the future. The company maintains any unissued shares as treasury stock, where they remain "on the shelf" until offered for public sale.
