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. With Pence running the ship good luck with a new government building on the site. He does everything on the cheap except unnecessary roads line a new beltway( like we need that). Things like state of the art office buildings and light rail will never be seen as an asset to these types. They don't get that these are the things that help a city prosper.

  2. Does the $100,000,000,000 include salaries for members of Congress?

  3. "But that doesn't change how the piece plays to most of the people who will see it." If it stands out so little during the day as you seem to suggest maybe most of the people who actually see it will be those present when it is dark enough to experience its full effects.

  4. That's the mentality of most retail marketers. In this case Leo was asked to build the brand. HHG then had a bad sales quarter and rather than stay the course, now want to go back to the schlock that Zimmerman provides (at a considerable cut in price.) And while HHG salesmen are, by far, the pushiest salesmen I have ever experienced, I believe they are NOT paid on commission. But that doesn't mean they aren't trained to be aggressive.

  5. The reason HHG's sales team hits you from the moment you walk through the door is the same reason car salesmen do the same thing: Commission. HHG's folks are paid by commission they and need to hit sales targets or get cut, while BB does not. The sales figures are aggressive, so turnover rate is high. Electronics are the largest commission earners along with non-needed warranties, service plans etc, known in the industry as 'cheese'. The wholesale base price is listed on the cryptic price tag in the string of numbers near the bar code. Know how to decipher it and you get things at cost, with little to no commission to the sales persons. Whether or not this is fair, is more of a moral question than a financial one.
