Fisker (NYSE:FSR) stock is falling on Tuesday after the electric vehicle (EV) company announced plans for a $350 million stock offering.

The stock offering from Fisker will allow it to sell up to $350 million worth of FSR stock at market value. This comes as the EV company seeks to raise funds for its business, but what does it plan to do with that money?

According to Fisker, the funds generated from the stock offering will go toward several uses. Among these are Fisker Personal Electric Automotive Revolution development, other EV development, retail development, additional technology development, as well as general corporate purposes.

News of FSR stock dropping as the company plans to sell additional shares makes sense. The shares being offered by it are new to the market and dilute those already trading.
