NEW YORK (AP) -- Triple-S Management Corp. said Friday that a secondary offering of 5.4 million shares of its stock was priced at an approximately 5 percent discount to its Thursday closing price.

Shares of the insurance company fell 19 cents to $18.90 in premarket trading.

Triple-S said that the offering was priced at $18.25 per share. Its Thursday closing price was $19.11.
