Volume Killer: Satcon (SATC)

Posted in General 
June 10th, 2009

Satcon Technology Corporation (NASDAQ: SATC) is getting hammered this morning on a deep discount secondary offering.  That is an understatement.  The company priced its previously announced public offering of 15,557,692 shares of common stock at $1.30 per share. The problem is that this stock closed at $2.11 yesterday.  We have already doubled the normal trading volume and shares are flirting with $1.50 in pre-open trading.  Its 52-week range is $1.08 to $3.51.  The offering is $20.2 million or so in gross proceeds and the market cap before the drop was $108 million.  Satcon also granted the underwriters (Thomas Weisel-lead; Ardour as co-manager) an option to purchase up to an additional 2,333,654 shares of its common stock. The closing of the offering is expected to take place on June 15, 2009.
