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. The east side does have potential...and I have always thought Washington Scare should become an outlet mall. Anyone remember how popular Eastgate was? Well, Indy has no outlet malls, we have to go to Edinburgh for the deep discounts and I don't understand why. Jim is right. We need a few good eastsiders interested in actually making some noise and trying to change the commerce, culture and stereotypes of the East side. Irvington is very progressive and making great strides, why can't the far east side ride on their coat tails to make some changes?

  2. Boston.com has an article from 2010 where they talk about how Interactions moved to Massachusetts in the year prior. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2010/07/interactions_banks_63_million.html The article includes a link back to that Inside Indiana Business press release I linked to earlier, snarkily noting, "Guess this 2006 plan to create 200-plus new jobs in Indiana didn't exactly work out."

  3. I live on the east side and I have read all your comments. a local paper just did an article on Washington square mall with just as many comments and concerns. I am not sure if they are still around, but there was an east side coalition with good intentions to do good things on the east side. And there is a facebook post that called my eastside indy with many old members of the eastside who voice concerns about the east side of the city. We need to come together and not just complain and moan, but come up with actual concrete solutions, because what Dal said is very very true- the eastside could be a goldmine in the right hands. But if anyone is going damn, and change things, it is us eastside residents

  4. Please go back re-read your economics text book and the fine print on the February 2014 CBO report. A minimum wage increase has never resulted in a net job loss...

  5. The GOP at the Statehouse is more interested in PR to keep their majority, than using it to get anything good actually done. The State continues its downward spiral.
