Cosmos Holdings’ share price recently fell after the company announced that it had upsized its latest equity offering to 62.5 million shares of common stock sold at $0.12 each to raise gross proceeds of $7.5 million, which it intends to use to support pending or potential acquisitions, and to pay off pending liabilities to some warrant holders.
The CEO’s move to acquire more shares after the significant decline in Cosmos’ share price indicates that he is confident in the company’s prospects, which is always a good sign. Unfortunately, the opposite is true of times when CEOs and other company executives sell their shares in the company they are running, which is regarded as a cautionary sign.
In late September, Cosmos agreed to acquire ZipDoctor from American International after signing a non-binding letter of intent (LOI). American International Holdings (AMIH) will continue to manage the day-to-day operations of ZipDoctor, including marketing, product development and operational support. However, it is still unclear when the transaction will close.
Cosmos also signed a distribution agreement with Virax Biolabs to distribute its Monkeypox Virus Real-Time PCR Detection Kit, which could generate decent revenues for the company given the rising Monkeypox cases globally.
The company’s share price has been trading below the crucial $1 mark required by the Nasdaq, and the firm may consider a share consolidation in future to bring its share price in line with the Nasdaq’s listing requirements. However, the stock has not breached the exchange’s six months deadline.
