SoundHound AI (NASDAQ:SOUN) stock is falling on Wednesday after investors learned that the voice artificial intelligence (AI) solutions company is preparing a secondary offering.

A filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reveals that SoundHound AI is planning an at-the-market equity offering for up to $150 million worth of shares of SOUN stock. The company doesn’t intend to offer these shares all at once and will instead do so at its discretion.

All proceeds from these SOUN stock sales will see the company pay 2.5% to the offering’s managers. These are Citigroup Global Markets, Barclays Capital, Wedbush Securities, Northland Securities and Ladenburg Thalmann & Co.

How This Affects SOUN Stock

A secondary offering of SOUN stock will result in dilution of the company’s outstanding shares. This has investors in the company worried about their stakes in the company shrinking alongside this offering. This is a common concern for investors when a company offers more shares of its stock.

With that weight on SOUN stock today, the company’s shares are down 8.6% as of Wednesday morning. This comes with some 19.5 million shares traded. The company’s daily average trading volume is about 62 million shares.
