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.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
