That public offering has Seelos Therapeutics selling 1.78 million shares of SEEL stock and pre-funded warrants for up to 2.42 million shares. It also includes accompanying warrants for another 4.20 million shares.
The stocks and warrants are being sold at a combined price of $1.32 per share while the pre-funded warrants and accompanied warrants are being sold for $1.319 each. The common warrants have an exercise price of $1.32 per share and the pre-funded ones are exercisable at $0.001 per share.
Seelos Therapeutics is expecting to raise $5.55 million from this public offering. It will use the money to fund its research and development, pay back an outstanding convertible promissory note and for general corporate purposes.
How This Affects SEEL Stock
A public offering such as this increases the total number of shares of SEEL stock. That doesn’t often sit well with current shareholders, as it dilutes their stakes in the company.
On that same note, the offering price of $1.32 per share is a significant discount over its prior closing price of $2.38 per share. Given that pricing, it makes sense that SEEL stock would give up some ground today.
SEEL stock is down 41.6% as of Wednesday morning.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
