Due to the speculations, shareholders sell their stock because mixed shelf offering means the end of buyout talks with Bristol Myers Squibb due to which its shares blasted higher last month.

The accompanying prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission noted that the proceeds of any stock sales under this offering would be used for clinical development and commercial production of the company’s Food and Drug Administration approved lupus nephritis (LN) medication Lupkynis. It would advance its pipeline, business development opportunities, capital expenditures, and working capital.

There is no such news available on the company’s website so we have to wait and see how the company responds on Monday after the weekend.
