11:28 EDTDKSGoPro rises after company, shareholders file to sell 10.36M shares
Shares of GoPro (GRPO) are rising in early trade after the company filed to sell 10.36M shares of its stock on behalf of the company and its stockholders. WHAT'S NEW: GoPro announced in a prospectus that it is selling about 1.29M shares of class A common stock and that selling stockholders are selling 9.073M shares of class A common stock. The holders of the company's outstanding class B common stock will hold approximately 96.1% of the voting power following this offering, with its executive officers and directors and their affiliates holding approximately 65% and CEO Nicholas Woodman holding approximately 42.5% after his sale of about 4.08M shares of class A common stock in this offering, the company explained. GoPro estimated that it will receive net proceeds of $97.1M from the sale of class A shares, assuming a public offering price of $79.15 per share. The company said it expects to use the net proceeds of this offering for general corporate purposes including working capital, adding that it may also use a portion of the net proceeds to acquire or invest in complementary businesses, technologies or assets. "However, we have no present commitments or agreements to enter into any acquisitions or make any investments," GoPro noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On November 10, GoPro shares slipped after its CEO acknowledged he planned to sell some of his stake as part of this stock offering. In a regulatory filing at that time, the company shared an email message sent by Woodman to employees, in which he assured that he plans to be a "significant shareholder in GoPro for a long time." Additionally, on its earnings conference call this morning, Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) management said it continues to be "extremely enthusiastic" about the electronics category, particularly wearables, GoPro cameras, and the Fitbit activity tracker. ANALYST OPINION: In a note to investors this morning, Pacific Crest said channel checks for high end GoPros are looking better than expected. The firm said it sees upside to the upcoming quarter for Ambarella (AMBA), which provides components used by GoPro in its cameras. Pacific Crest increased its price target on Ambarella shares to $55 from $47 and maintains its Outperform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, shares of GoPro rose 4.2% to $84.92, while Ambarella (AMBA) gained 5.8% to $51.60.
