If you purchase shares of common stock in this offering, your interest will be diluted to the extent of the difference between the price per share you pay in this offering and the net tangible book value per share of our common stock after this offering. We calculate net tangible book value per share by dividing the net tangible book value, tangible assets less total liabilities, by the number of outstanding shares of common stock.
Our net tangible book value as of September 30, 2017 was $28.4 million, or $0.66 per share of common stock. After giving effect to the sale of shares of common stock at the public offering price of $3.00, less the underwriting discounts
|and commissions and our estimated offering expenses, our as adjusted net tangible book value as of September 30, 2017 would have been approximately $84.2 million, or approximately $1.34 per share of common stock. This represents an immediate increase in the net tangible book value of $0.68 per share to existing stockholders and an immediate dilution of $1.66 per share to new investors purchasing common stock in this offering at the public offering price. The following table illustrates this per share dilution:|
Public offering price per share of common stock
Net tangible book value per share of common stock as of September 30, 2017
Increase in net tangible book value per share attributable to new investors in this offering
As adjusted net tangible book value per share of common stock
Dilution per share of common stock to new investors in this offering
If the underwriters exercise their option to purchase 3,000,000 shares of common stock in full at the public offering price, the as adjusted net tangible book value after this offering would be approximately $1.40 per share, representing an increase in net tangible book value of approximately $0.74 per share to existing stockholders and immediate dilution in net tangible book value of approximately $1.60 per share to investors purchasing our common stock in this offering at the public offering price.
The above discussion is based on 42,977,176 shares of common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2017, and excludes:
6,661,704 shares issuable upon the exercise of options outstanding as of September 30, 2017 at a weighted average exercise price of $6.30 per share;
29,239 shares issuable upon the exercise of warrants;
383,333 shares issuable upon the conversion of 575 shares of Series N-3 Preferred Stock at a conversion price of $3.00 per share;
185,664 shares reserved for issuance under our employee stock purchase plan;
7,038,228 shares reserved for issuance under our equity compensation plans; and
one share of common stock reserved for issuance upon exercise of outstanding restricted share rights.
To the extent the options, warrants or rights outstanding as of September 30, 2017 have been or are exercised, or other shares are issued, investors purchasing shares of common stock in this offering could experience further dilution. In addition, we may choose to raise additional capital due to market conditions or strategic considerations, even if we believe we have sufficient funds for our current or future operating plans. To the extent that additional capital is raised through the sale of equity or convertible debt securities, the issuance of these securities could result in further dilution to our shareholders.
