Imagine, they lower the stock prich by about 35% to get their buddies some cheap shares in exchange for a little cash then pop out this news release to give them a quick bump as well. Man you have to have cash on hand at all times to take advantage of these opportunities. Back up slowly from here.
Those public offerings are most likely bought by institutional investors, who demand some discount. Back a while ago, ARNA sold shares at $5.5 and now it is above $11 and climbing. Hopefully AMPE will follow the same path.
