  • Rights Offering

    Rights offerings are equity instruments similar to warrants that companies can use to raise capital. However, rights offerings usually expire within a much shorter time frame - within a month for rights offerings versus two to five years for warrants and are priced at a discount to the market price of a company's stock.

    At-the-Market Offerings

    ATMs enable public companies listed on a U.S. Exchange (NYSE, AMEX, NASDAQ) to sell to the public periodically during the term of the offering, through a broker-dealer, registered common or preferred shares in amounts and at times of the issuer’s choosing. The shares are sold at the then prevailing “market price” to “natural interest” in the market – thus the name “At-the-Market” offering.
