Raising Capital in the Current Environment

ATM Programs and Rights Offerings

In the current equity capital markets environment, innovative offerings that avoid massive dilution can be advantageous. ATM offering programs provide public companies an efficient means of raising capital over time by allowing a company to tap into the existing trading market for its shares on an as-and-when-needed basis. Rights offerings allow public companies to raise capital while offering all current shareholders the opportunity to participate equally, thereby allowing each shareholder to avoid objectionable dilution when trading prices are relatively low.
