Archer Aviation (NYSE:ACHR) filed today to sell up to $70 million of additional shares of its common stock. Archer is developing an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft called the Midnight.

ACHR stock is having a rocky trading morning and is just a hair in the red today at 0.2%. However, it is down about 8% for the past five days.

Archer’s Sale of ACHR Stock

Archer stated that it could obtain as much as $70 million by selling a combination of “common stock, preferred stock or debt securities, subscription rights to… common stock, preferred stock or debt securities.” The sale of the shares, which investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald will manage, will be carried out through “at the market” offerings, Archer noted.

With at-the-market offerings, companies sell their shares at “prevailing” market prices.

Archer stated that it would use the proceeds from its offering “for general corporate purposes,” including “research and development costs, potential strategic acquisitions, services or technologies, (and) capital expenditures.”
