Arcadia adds Goldsmith to board, seeks $11M in offering

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Arcadia Resources Inc. has appointed former Indianapolis Mayor Steve Goldsmith to its board of directors, the locally based health care company announced Monday morning.

Goldsmith, who served as mayor from 1992 to 2000, is a professor in the American Government Program at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. He also is the chairman of the Corporation for National and Community Service, a major grant maker that supports national and community services programs.

Goldsmith will replace Tres Lund, a major Arcadia shareholder who resigned from the board after serving on it since 2007. 

In addition Monday morning, Arcadia said it plans to sell nearly 16 million shares of stock in a registered direct offering that will raise $11.1 million.

Arcadia, which operates health care staffing businesses and a pharmaceutical management service, has commitments to sell the shares to institutional investors, which it did not name in its announcement. The company needed more cash, as its reserves had dwindled to $517,000 at the end of the second quarter, down from $2.4 million a year earlier.

The investors will pay 70 cents for each unit, which consists of one share of common stock as well as a warrant to purchase 0.45 shares as early as six months from now. The warrants are exercisable at a price of 95 cents per share.

Arcadia’s stock price closed Friday at 75 cents per share. The value of the stock has tripled in the last year as Arcadia’s losses have narrowed. However, the company’s share price has fallen 35 percent from its high set in mid-September.

The new shares offered, which totaled 15,857,141, represent 9.8 percent of Arcadia’s total shares outstanding.

And the company could sell even more shares. According to a prospectus Arcadia filed Friday with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, it may “from time to time” sell new shares up to a limit of 20 million.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
