Shares of PNST stock closed out its first day of trading up 6.5% after seeing some turbulence earlier that day. However, the company’s shares are now falling again, with an 11.8% drop on Wednesday morning.

It’s not uncommon to see new stocks experience volatility after going public. That’s especially true for those that do so through a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) merger such as Pinstripes.

The SPAC merger saw shares of Pinstripes stock debut at $10.90 on Tuesday. The company also maintains its management team from before the merger now that it’s public and has raised $70 million through the SPAC merger for its operations.

Pinstripes focuses on offering food and entertainment via large venues. It currently operates 14 of these in the U.S., and it focuses on offering Italian-American food and beverages. These locations can support groups of 20 to 1,5000 people for private events, Nation’s Restaurant News notes.
