Rights Offering Specialists

 

At RHK Capital, we are well-known as specialists in the niche Rights Offering space, facilitating creative solutions and structures that are tailored to the client’s needs. As a testament to our team’s expertise and track record of success, Overstock.com recently selected us to underwrite the historic first crypto-security on their t0 platform, further cementing our position as an announcement date to the end of the subscription period. Companies in a broad spectrum of industries have been launching rights offerings to take advantage of the many benefits this unique capital raising structure. Rights offerings are a viable and thriving tax-efficient means of raising capital in the current market from existing supportive shareholders and broker-dealers, while at the same time preventing dilution and preserving tax loss carry-forwards.

 

A right offering is essentially a democratization of the public offering process and an intelligent capital formation strategy, which allows an issuer to offer to existing shareholders through all domestic and foreign broker-dealers (via a tax-free dividend of subscription rights to all shareholders of record) the right but not the obligation to purchase more stock of the company (or a subsidiary of the issuer) via the exercise of subscription rights. The rights are distributed to all existing shareholders through all broker-dealers as of a specific dividend record date and the offer is made available on a discounted, pro rata ownership basis only to those who have bought the stock prior to the record date.
