The REIT makes an attempt at capital expansion with a fresh offering of shares.

Resource Capital (ACR -2.68%) has begun a 16.25 million-share common stock issue in an underwritten public flotation. Additionally, it intends to grant those underwriters a 30-day purchase option for up to an additional 2.44 million shares.

In the press release announcing the move, the REIT said it plans to use the proceeds of the issue for "general corporate purposes." It did not elaborate on what those might be.

It also did not specify a price or range for the issue. Resource Capital's most recent closing stock price was $6.53.

The two joint book-running managers for the offering are Deutsche Bank's Securities unit, and JPMorgan Chase's near-namesake investment banking subsidiary J.P. Morgan.
