The company is getting ready to capitalize on its latest success

The Reddit-fueled stock, GameStop, closed at $186.95 per share after the company announced that it wants to sell up to 3.5 million shares worth no more than $1 billion. According to a statement, the proceedings will be used to speed up the transition to e-commerce.

However, this is not the first time when GameStop tries to sell its shares. According to a December SEC filing, at that time the company was looking to sell $100 million worth of shares via an at-the-market offering (ATM). The event never took place, mainly because security laws prevent it from doing so without disclosing its latest financial situation.

Despite having rallied more than 1,000% since the beginning of the year, GameStop declined almost 14% in just one day. It is not the first time when its shares tanked this much. It lost 33% after it posted fiscal fourth-quarter earnings that were below estimates. Moreover, at that time, the company’s representatives were reluctant to give any additional information.
