Shares of Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD) have come a long way since I originally presented the idea as “undervalued with catalysts” at the end of 2016. In total I’ve written four update pieces since and the stock has continued to be a decent performer.

In premarket today, the stock is in the red by a bit over 2% on news that the company sold 19,354,839 shares at a price point of $15.50 per share. Gross proceeds are expected to total around $300 million. Underwriter option is for an additional 2,903,225 shares should it be exercised. Dilution of around 13% or so appears acceptable, and it’s worth noting that JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs are serving as joint lead book-running managers while Cowen and Leerink Partners are acting as co-booking managers (Bank of America Merrill Lynch as lead co-manager). This type of investment banking participation bodes well, as does pricing which is at only a slight discount to the current share price. Keep in mind that the deal was originally for $250 million but then it was upsized to $300 million, another bullish sign.
