LogicMark (NASDAQ:LGMK) stock is falling on Tuesday after the medical device company priced a $5.2 million public offering of its shares.

Specifically, the LGMK stock offering includes 10.58 million units and 3.44 million pre-funded units. The pricing of the offering values each unit at $0.371.

In the case of the normal units, they include one share of LGMK stock as well as a warrant to “purchase one and one-half shares of common stock.” Those warrants are immediately exercisable for $0.371 and expire after five years.

When it comes to the pre-funded units, they also include one share of LGMK stock and a warrant to purchase one and one-half shares. These units cost $0.001 less than the other units and the warrant in them is also immediately exercisable for $0.371. These warrants also expire after five years.

Why This Has LGMK Stock Down

Investors typically don’t react well to a public stock offering for a couple of reasons. First, it reduces their stake in a company as outstanding shares increase. Second, the units are typically priced below the stock’s market value, which devalues their shares.

As a result, heavy trading is pulling LGMK stock down on Tuesday. This has some 2 million shares changing hands. That’s well above the daily average trading volume of 133,000 shares.

LGMK stock is down 36% as of Tuesday morning.
