The Bottom Line:
I like the company and its CEO - a company should always be raising money yet, transparency is better served NOT hiding the share price shrinking filing.
Is it a seconday offering or a shelf for the future?
In this economy and market - "if the window is OPEN - jump through" - it could be a tough 2023 after the offering freeze of 2022!
