I believe there are fees no matter who you do dividend reinvestments with.
I believe fidelity said they buy shares for everyone but there is a commission.
Of course, its hard to know who is getting the best price.
Maybe we could all post out dividend reinvestment prices and compare ?
Mine are with fidelity and I will post them later today and hopefully others will do we can compare.
I don't expect a material difference but lets compare.
I thought it was less than that.
But NOLs and a potential deal are whats interesting here.
Becker Drapkin hasn't bought since Feb so Im inclined to think they aren't buying more.
And maybe that's good. Maybe they are not allowed because they have material non public info ?
We could get a pop when a deal is announced. The downside is nothing could be announced for 6-12 months and there is a small possibility they buy something that shareholders don't really care for.
Its a bet on Becker Drapkins ability to do something with this "shell".
I think they will. When is the question.
Its tough for such a small company to raise capital.
All in all, its a reasonably fair deal. At one point I was considered they would have to price it under $2.
And heck, they probably could have sold the 2.83 million at $2.00.
So the deal they did strikes a good balance.
They can raise more in a year or so if the market price improves and they put the capital to good use.
They can immediately pay down the high cost debt to friends & relatives of board members.
In hindsight, selling out at $4 would have been the right move. But who knew in advance where the top would be ?
LOAN will need to renew their deal with Sterling by Dec. but that shouldn't be a problem and I expect with the new capital they will even raise the limit.
They project net proceeds of $4.3 million which means it cost us 14% to raise the capital which means the company netted $2.451 per share.
Could end up being a little more if they exercise their overallotment shares.
The current $2.53 is an 11.06% yield. Probably worth owning. I wouldn't be surprised to see it go to a 9% yield
which is about $3.11 within 6 months.
Downside risk seems very small. Its hard to imagine the shares going to $2 again. unless they announce a first time ever write down or something.

On May 8, 2014, Steel Excel Inc. (the “Company”) increased its holdings of the common stock of API Technologies Corp. (“API”) to 11,377,192 shares through the acquisition of 1,666,666 shares on the open market. Upon acquiring such shares the Company held approximately 20.5% of the total outstanding common stock of API with a fair value of approximately $26.6 million.
Where did you get 2.5 million ?
I don't recall seeing that figure anywhere.
What happened is the underwriter manipulated & shorted as much stock as possible and then made a deal where they sell the 1.754 million.
The underwriter is never going to lose.
And the company is probably only going to net about $2.50 per share after all expenses.
The current price is a modest discount likely reflecting the underwriting discount. In other words, if the discount is 8%, the underwriter pays $2.622 per share.
So wholesale is $2.62 and retail is $2.85. No free lunch.
In hindsight, I should have sold out at $4.
Why didn't someone tell me that was the top ?
A follow-on offering (often but incorrectly called secondary offering) is an issuance of stock subsequent to the company's initial public offering. A follow-on offering can be either of two types (or a mixture of both): dilutive and non-dilutive. A secondary offering is an offering of securities by a shareholder of the company (as opposed to the company itself, which is a primary offering). A follow on offering is preceded by release of prospectus similar to IPO: a Follow-on Public Offer (FPO).
It was originally $10 million or 2.83 million at $3.53.
Maybe they knew they would never sell that many but just went larger trying to sell as much as they could ?
Its a fair offering in that its not dilutive to current holders based on book value anyway.
Not really. Its less than they were looking to sell. But $2.85 is a reasonably fair price I guess.
But its not trading.
pricing of the offering ?
