Egalet Corp. (NASDAQ: EGLT) is having an incredibly rough day in the market today, and for good reason. The company announced a public offering that threatens to dilute the stock. Of course, this is leading to concern among investors, causing declines in the value of the stock, and prompting our partners at Trade Ideas to alert us to the movement. At the moment (9:25), EGLT is trading at $1.65 per share after a loss of $0.89 per share or 35.04% thus far today.

EGLT Dives On Offering

As mentioned above, Egalet is having an incredibly rough time in the market today following news of a public offering of common stock. The company announced late yesterday that it would be moving forward with a large offering. In fact, the company plans on selling 16.66 million shares.

The shares will be sold at $1.80 per share. Ultimately, the company plans on using the money earned from this offering to support commercial sales and marketing efforts surrounding Arymo ER extended-release tablets for oral use, Sprix nasal spray, and Oxaydo tablets. Any excess funds produced through the offering will be used by EGLT for general corporate purposes.
