Tonix Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:TNXP) stock is falling on Wednesday after the biopharmaceutical company announced a proposed public offering for its shares.

Tonix Pharmaceuticals doesn’t provide any finer details about this offering. That means we don’t know how many shares it will include or what they will be priced at. What it does say is how it will use funds from the offering.

Tonix Pharmaceuticals intends to use the money gained from a public offer for working capital and general corporate purposes. Specifically, it notes this will help it with its new drug application for Tonmya. This is the company’s product candidate to treat fibromyalgia patients.

Investors aren’t excited about the public offering for a couple of reasons. The first is that it will dilute their stakes by adding new outstanding shares. The second is the likeliness that it will price shares below their current value.
