股价一路狂飙,游戏驿站终于准备套现了

游戏驿站为何迟迟没有利用其股价飙升这一大好形式呢?

过去几个月,大量散户投资者因购入游戏驿站(GameStop)股票狂赚数百万美元。此刻,游戏驿站希望利用其股价飙升的机会大赚一笔。

这家视频游戏零售商周一宣布,将发行最多350万股股票。该公司并未给出具体的股票发行时间表,同时指出最终发行数目和时间“将由多种因素决定。”

游戏驿站股价周一开盘报171美元,虽然仍低于上周五收盘价,但到上午十时左右已涨至183美元(募集资金约6.405亿美元)。不过,即使该股跌至150美元,仍将带来5.25亿美元的额外收益。

该公司的库存现金将增加近一倍,截至2020年底,其库存现金为6.35亿美元。

游戏驿站表示,即使r/WallStreetBets社区再次推高其股价,其出售的股票也不会超过350万股,“总收益不会超过10亿美元。”

游戏驿站为何迟迟没有利用其股价飙升这一大好形式呢?投资者和分析师们纷纷表示疑惑。反观AMC,当其股价在Reddit交易员关注之下出现反弹时,这家连锁影院并未犹豫,其通过发行股票募集了3.048亿美元。

游戏驿站始终不愿就股价上涨作出说明,甚至在第四季度财报电话会议上也拒绝回答分析师的提问,并且在事先准备好的说明中也未提及股价上涨事宜。

该公司表示,此次股票发行募集的资金将用于加速推进公司转型。Chewy创始人兼游戏驿站董事会成员瑞安•科恩已担任公司高管,还让几位前Chewy员工加入了董事会,并且领导新成立的战略规划监督委员会。

除了在财报电话会议上发布事先准备好的说明外,游戏驿站CEO乔治•谢尔曼未作出其他任何说明。迄今为止,该公司尚未向美国证监会提交任何公告,说明其已出售或计划出售其持有的任何股票,其持股市值一度高达约10亿美元。(财富中文网)

Plenty of individual investors have made millions of dollars off GameStop in the past few months. Now GameStop is looking to take advantage of its stock’s stratospheric rise.

The video game retailer announced Monday it planned to sell up to 3.5 million shares. It did not give a precise timeline for the sale, noting the final amount and timing “will be determined by a variety of factors.”

GameStop shares opened at $171 on Monday, and while they are still below Friday’s close, they were up to $183 by midmorning (putting the potential cash raise at $640.5 million). Even if the stock falls as low as $150, though, that would bring in $525 million in additional revenue.

That would nearly double the company’s cash on hand, which stood at $635 million at the end of 2020.

Should the r/WallStreetBets community send the stock on another ride to the moon, GameStop said it will not sell more than 3.5 million shares—and “aggregate gross proceeds will not exceed $1 billion.”

Investors and analysts have openly wondered why GameStop has been hesitant to take advantage of its stock surge. AMC did not show the same hesitation when the interest of Reddit traders caused that stock to rally. The movie theater chain raised $304.8 million by selling shares during that period.

GameStop has steadfastly refused to address the rise, even going as far as declining to take analyst questions during its fourth quarter earnings call and not mentioning the stock rise in prepared comments.

The money raised during the stock sale will be used to accelerate the company’s ongoing transformation, the company said. Chewy founder and GameStop board member Ryan Cohen has increasingly been taking a leadership position in the company, bringing several former Chewy employees on board and heading a new committee that’s overseeing strategic planning.

GameStop CEO George Sherman has been quiet, aside from the prepared comments on the earnings call. To date, the company has not filed any notice with the SEC that he has sold or plans to sell any of his stock holdings, which at one point were worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 billion.
