The Beranek Company, whose stock price is now $25, needs to raise $20 million in common stock. Underwriters have informed the firm’s management that
they must price the new issue to the public at $22 per share because of signaling effects. The underwriters’ compensation will be 5% of the issue price, so Beranek will net $20.90 per share. The firm will also incur expenses in the amount of $1,50,000.00. How many shares must the firm sell to net $20 million after underwriting and flotation expenses?
