I believe this represents right after the lowering of the RO pricing.
Earlier today IB had 2K shares avail. for shorting.
It will be interesting to see how this now plays.

That 2K will surely change dramatically to the upside, since the RO shares are not distributed yet- I still have some funny CYTX tickers in my account at IB most likely representing the subscription rights and the number I signed for.

Once completed, it will be interesting to see how the stock responds. I have no illusions (:grin: ), but than again, with the focus now on IIS more than before- one can expect news from all different sources, in my view.

I agree its hard to say for sure on what the reaction going forward will be Fas
Since we had the PPS spike though (0.80's), if players wanted, the game is certainly alive and well.

30K share avail. at IB this morning

***30K share avail. at IB this morning ***

At 12:30 this was down to 400 shares
At 3:14 there were zero shares avail.

I am sure there is a certain amount of churn but it still seems as soon as shares become avail. for shorting they are immediately sold into the market.

That means that some folks are converting their Preferred B, which should take a few days. With 30 Mio fresh shares coming into the depots, that number should rise significantly. Although I have no intention to convert anything, until I have checked if there might be some benefit in keeping them- they are indefinitely convertible- i.e. as long as Cytori is not BK. :grin:

I took your advice- started adding bit by bit- yesterday at 27+ cents.

Nice Fas...good luck.
At approx.18% below the offering a good place to start. I know some were posting elsewhere buying while still in the $0.30's. Obviously too High and too early.

As far as converting...yeah, you are probably right but I think there is a good chance some just got spooked at the carnage and may have sold their RO shares as well. Especially yesterday. I also believe we had some short covering but it is impossible to judge to what effect.
Early yet today. Threating $0.27 again though. 2p to 4p should show the real action.

I never looked at the RO closely because I thought it was a terrible investment. However, I thought that the B shares could not be converted right away because the underlying common shares were not authorized yet. Am I incorrect? Are the B shares immediately convertible?

Got my answer: NOT CONVERTIBLE BY HOLDER only by CYTORI:

Each share of Series B Preferred Stock will be convertible, at our option at any time on or after the first anniversary of the closing of the Rights Offering or at the option of the holder at any time, into the number of shares of our common stock determined by dividing the $1,000 stated value per share of the Series B Preferred Stock by a conversion price of $0.3333 per share, subject to adjustment. The Series B Preferred Stock has certain conversion rights, dividend rights and liquidation preferences.

Yes I stand corrected. But I thought that the shares are not yet authorized. What am I missing?

Obviously the warrants cant all convert now and will need approval to increase the authorized shares but there was room for the preferred to convert.
CYTXW worthless anyway.
Remains to be seen if CYTXS will have value at the conversion price..

Big jump as shorting into the PPS pop was fashionable.
A increase of over 454,000 shares
1/31/2018
2,344,593 shares short

No worry of pending deal just yet I suppose.
BTW...laughable AH trade of 1 share of CYTX....this has happened several times as some desperately trying to show something positive.
Sad and in too deep I suspect...LOL. Deadly in speculative biotech.
