For Sale: 20 Million Palm Shares at $16.25 Apiece

palmhailmaryjpg-150x150Palm this morning put a price on its public offering of 20 million common shares: $16.25 a piece. That’s nearly five percent less than Tuesday’s closing price of $17.07, but enough to generate about $313.1 million. At least $35 million of the total will come from current investor Elevation Partners, for whom shares have already been reserved.

Palm (PALM), which reported a narrower-than-expected loss last week, plans to use proceeds from the sale for working capital, general corporate purposes and perhaps to underwrite the additional development required to make webOS 1.2 re-enable synching with Apple (AAPL) iTunes.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
