Marpai (NASDAQ:MRAI) stock is taking a beating on Monday after the company announced a proposed public offering for its shares.

Marpai announced the proposed public offering after markets closed on Friday. It followed that up with the pricing for the public offering before markets opened this morning.

That public offering has the company intending to sell 7.4 million shares of MRAI stock at a price of $1 per share. This has it expecting to raise $7.4 million in gross proceeds from the stock offering before discounts and expenses.

Marpai also already has plans for the funds from the public offering. The company will use roughly 35% of the money generated from this offering to pay down the debt it has from its acquisition of Maestro Health. The rest will be used for general corporate purposes.

What This Means for MRAI Stock

Shares are falling today with a negative reaction to the MRAI stock offering. That makes sense as investors don’t like seeing the stock devalued from its prior closing price of $1.87 per share. They also don’t appreciate new shares diluting their stakes in the company.

Shares of MRAI stock are also seeing strong trading with some 1.22 million on the move as of this writing. That’s quickly closing in on its daily average trading volume of about 1.25 million shares.

MRAI stock is down 39.6% as of Monday morning.
