SolarEdge, an Israeli producer of alternative energy resources, is planning on issuing more stock that the company expects to bring in a windfall of $600 million. According to Globes, that company has filed a prospectus with the SEC to issue 2,000,000 new shares on the NASDAQ. Underwriters Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley the option to buy another 300,000 shares which, if taken, would add as much as another $90 million.
SolarEdge first went public in January 2021. At the time it set a record for an Israeli public corporation, hitting a valuation of almost $18 billion. Today its market cap is still above $17 billion.
Oil prices are spiking and the average cost of gasoline is going up everywhere because of the current crisis in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russian oil and gas. As a result, interest in alternative energy development has once again increased. If the climate crisis was not enough to scare people into doing something about developing more renewable forms of energy, high prices at the gas pump and higher electric bills certainly will.
