Appcelerator is going to the bank with yet another big, fat, Sand Hill Road check

Mobile app dev platform Appcelerator has just told the SEC it’s working on more funding.

In a filing today, the company revealed it’s sold around $5 million of a planned $16 million in shares to a range of investors.

Reps from the company told us the round wasn’t yet closed (obviously), but we’ll be first to know when the deal is officially sealed.

In today’s filing, we see such names as Storm Ventures’ Ryan Floyd, Azure Capital Partners’ Larry Augustin, Sierra Ventures’ Tim Guleri, TransLink Capital’s Toshiya Otani, Canada-based Woodside Fund’s John Occhipinti, and Mayfield Fund’s Navin Chaddha.

Mayfield, TransLink, Sierra, and Storm are listed on Appcelerator’s site as existing investors.

The company has been raking in the proverbial dough quite a bit this year, posting a $16 million round in February and an upcoming $3 million raise for April. So far, it’s mostly a spaghetti-like mound of regulatory filings; what we’re likely to see in the next month or so is the company’s formal Series D announcement.

Appcelerator’s $15 million Series C closed in November 2011. At that time, it also announced it had become the largest third-party app publisher for both iOS and Android mobile platforms.
