Here's an excerpt from today's Form 8-K filed with the SEC:

Item 8.01 Other Events.

On June 7, 2024, GameStop Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), filed a prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with the Company’s “at-the-market offering” program (the “Offering”) for the offer and sale from time to time through Jefferies LLC (the “Sales Agent”) of up to 75,000,000 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Shares”), pursuant to the Company’s existing Open Market Sale AgreementSM (the “Sales Agreement”) with the Sales Agent, dated May 17, 2024. Prior to the date hereof, the Company has sold an aggregate of 45,000,000 shares of its common stock for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $933.4 million pursuant to the Sales Agreement.

The Common Shares are being offered and sold pursuant to the Company’s automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the SEC on May 17, 2024, which became effective immediately upon filing, and the Prospectus Supplement.

GameStop's stock is down over 20% on the news of the share offering, but the company also pre-announced its Q1 2024 earnings results posting a larger than expected loss of $0.11/share and a 28.7% decline in revenue from Q1 2023. GameStop's cash account will be bolstered by the secondary share offering announced today, but many will have their eyes on Roaring Kitty's YouTube livestream today at noon to see exactly what the investor plans to do with his 120,000 call options and five million shares of GameStop.

        So the company is better capitalized than it ever has been, and you want to short it? K.

          At what point do they stop though? How's the price supposed to stay up if they keep making existing shares worth less.

          I mean, they lost money, have no real long term prospects and are transferring short term enthusiasm in equity to pay down debt, so yeah?

            just to be clear, I don't think there's any real bull case for this stock but I wouldn't short the stock either. Whatever is driving GME's stock price has nothing to do with fundamental strength or weakness.

              I hope no one is betting on the stock from a fundamental basis. Should all be lottery ticket trades here.
