NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- IsoRay  (ISR) plunged 25.15% to $2.47 at 10 a.m. on Friday after the company priced its registered direct offering of common stock.

The company announced it had reached agreements with two institutional investors to sell 5,644,300 shares at $2.60 a share, which should yield gross proceeds of $14,675,180. IsoRay plans to use the proceeds for working capital and other corporate purposes.
