Senseonics Holdings’ recent common stock public offering

Senseonics Holdings announced the completion of its public offering of common stock, which resulted in proceeds worth $149.5 million for the company. The funds are slated to be used for the launch of the company’s recently approved Eversense CGM in the United States and working capital and general corporate requirements.

As per Tim Goodnow, president and CEO, Senseonics, “We are pleased with the results of this transaction and the support that we have received from the investment community. The funds provided from this offering meaningfully strengthen our balance sheet and will be instrumental in supporting a broad launch of Eversense in the United States.”

Senseonics Holdings’ Eversense CGM was approved in Europe in February. Some analysts have raised their target prices on SENS stock in June, following the news, and the stock has been trending upward, triggered by positive investor sentiment for the company’s new products and growth potential.

Year-to-date, SENS stock has risen ~67%. For the last 12 months, the stock registered stock price rise of ~146%.
