Red Shoe Co. has concluded that additional equity financing will be needed to expand operations and that the needed funds will be best obtained through a rights offering. It has correctly determined that as a result of the rights offering, the share price will fall from $65 to $63.20 ($65 is the rights-on price; $63.20 is the ex-rights price, also known as the when-issued price). The company is seeking $17 million in additional funds with a per-share subscription price equal to $35. How many shares are there currently, before the offering? (Assume that the increment to the market value of the equity equals the gross proceeds from the offering.)
