Proposed Equity Offering. Monday morning, FAT Brands announced an ATM sales agreement to raise a maximum $21.4 million through the sale of Class A common stock and/or the 8.25% Series B Cumulative Preferred. At Friday’s close, a full raise in common would add just under three million shares to the public float.
A Switch. The proposed ATM is a switch from the Class A equity offering floated by the Company just 10 days ago. That offering was tabled after the shares sold off some 17% over the weekend. Under the ATM, FAT can decline to sell shares if the shares cannot be sold at or above a price designated by the Company, which we believe is above $7.00 per share.
