Here's what the company said in a filing with the SEC today:

GameStop disclosed on May 17, 2024 that it filed a prospectus supplement with the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission to offer and sell up to a maximum amount of 45,000,000 shares of its common stock from time to time through the ATM Program. The Company sold the maximum number of shares registered under the ATM Program for aggregate gross proceeds (before commissions and offering expenses) of approximately $933.4 million.

GameStop intends to use the net proceeds from the ATM Program for general corporate purposes, which may include acquisitions and investments.

GameStop announced its plan to issue these shares last week, and also preannounced a revenue miss for the upcoming first quarter. GameStop's CEO Ryan Cohen has been awfully quiet on social media lately, leading many to guess what the purpose of this latest cash infusion could be. At the very least, shareholders should feel somewhat less worried with nearly $2 billion in cash and short-term securities on the GameStop balance sheet.
