NIO Plans $2 Billion Offering; Coupa Gains After Earnings; Late Roundup

Shanghai-based electric vehicle maker says funds will be used to strengthen balance sheet and for other corporate purposes.

NIO Inc.  (NIO) - Get NIO Inc. Sponsored ADR Class A Report said Tuesday it will offer $2 billion of its American depositary shares through an at-the-market equity offering.

Unlike an IPO, in which all shares are sold at a single price, an at-the-market offering allows a company to sell shares as needed at the then-prevailing market price. 

The Shanghai-based electric vehicle maker said proceeds from the sale will be used to fortify its balance sheet and for general corporate purposes.

Shares of NIO fell in after-hours trading following the announcement. The stock lost $1.23, or 3%, to $39.36 in after-hours trading. During the regular session shares rose 0.5%.

Earlier this month, NIO shares were hit after the company cut its deliveries estimate, blaming on-going semiconductor chip shortages that have plagued much of the auto industry this year

NIO delivered 5,880 vehicles in August, representing 48% year-over-year growth.
