When it comes to the pre-funded units, they include one share of LGMK stock and a warrant to purchase one and one-half shares of the stock. These units cost $0.001 less than the other units and the warrant in them is also immediately exercisable for $0.371. They also expire after five years.

Why This Has LGMK Stock Down

Investors typically don’t react well to a public stock offering for a couple of reasons. First, it reduces their stake in a company as outstanding shares increase. Second, the units are typically priced below the stock’s market value, which devalues their shares too.

As a result, heavy trading is pulling LGMK stock down on Tuesday. This has some 2 million shares of the company’s stock changing hands. That’s well above its daily average trading volume of 133,000 shares.

LGMK stock is down 36% as of Tuesday morning.
