Five Below Prices Secondary Stock Issue

Several Five Below insiders are cashing out of some of their stock. The company announced that a 6 million-share issue to be floated in a secondary public offering will carry a price tag of $36.00 per share. Additionally, its underwriters have been granted a 30-day purchase option for up to an additional 900,000 shares.

The selling stockholders are "certain members" of the company's management team and board of directors.
