Know Labs (NYSEMKT:KNW) stock is falling on Wednesday as the company biosensor technologies company launches a public share offering.

This public offering has Know Labs selling 28 million shares of KNW stock at a price of 25 cents per share. This has it expecting to raise $7 million in gross proceeds from the stock offering. It will use these funds for “product development, clinical studies, general and administrative expenses, intellectual property and working capital.”

To go along with this, Know Labs includes a 30-day option allowing underwriters to acquire another 4.2 million shares at the offering price. The Benchmark Company, LLC and Boustead Securities, LLC are serving as joint book running managers of the KNW stock offering.

What This Means for KNW Stock

With this stock offering, Know Labs is increasing the total number of shares issued. Doing so dilutes the stakes of current shareholders in the company. This is likely part of the reason the company’s stock is down today.

In addition to that, the stock offering is priced below KNW’s closing price of 35 cents on Tuesday. It makes sense that the discount on KNW shares in the offering would weigh on the stock as a result.

KNW stock is down 37.4% as of Wednesday morning and is down 75.6% since the start of the year.
