In a move that will help Palm in its struggle to keep its head above water, the company recently announced it has secured an additional $100 million in funding.
The funding comes via an equity investment by Elevation Partners, which has agreed to acquire Palm stock at a price of $3.25 per share - a 31% premium over its price at close of market on Friday.
Elevation has also been issued an option to acquire a further 7 million shares at the same price.
This cash infusion comes just in time - Palm recently announced it had lost $506 million in the company's latest fiscal quarter, and recorded revenues of just $171 million - below even the company's revised expectations.
