Reshape Lifesciences (NASDAQ:RSLS) stock is rocketing higher on Friday as a filing mixup shines a light on the company’s shares.

According to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Reshape Lifesciences is seeking the withdrawal of two filings made with the agency on Thursday. Those were Form RW filings connected to a Form S-1 registration statement.

Both of those filings were designated to accelerate the effectiveness of the registration statement. While the contents were accurate, the RW filing was wrong and they should have instead been correspondence to the SEC.

Reshape Lifesciences makes clear that this withdrawal request doesn’t include the Form S-1 it filed that same day. The company only wants to the RW filings made in error to be withdrawn.

The warrants allow for the purchase of one and one-half shares of RSLS stock. That represents 1,911,666 shares available through the warrants.
