GMX Resources Elects to Make Interest Payment in Stock in Lieu of Cash ($GMXR)

Today's filing:

"GMXR's Senior Secured Second-Priority Notes due 2018 have a quarterly interest payment due the second day of March, June, September and December. Interest on the notes accrues at 9.0% per annum. GMXR has an option to pay the interest in cash or in shares of our common stock. GMXR has elected to pay the interest payment due March 2, 2013 in shares of our common stock provided, the number of shares of our common stock issuable shall not exceed 604,216 shares. If the number of shares of common stock issuable as interest would exceed 604,216 shares, we will pay any additional interest amount payable in cash. The record date for this interest payment is February 16, 2013. The number of shares of common stock to be issued will be calculated as the quotient of (a) the difference between the total amount of such interest payment and the amount of such interest payment paid in cash, divided by (b) the product of (x) 0.75 times (y) the per share volume-weighted average price of the common stock for each of the 10 consecutive trading days ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the relevant interest payment date. If we were to pay this interest payment entirely in cash, the aggregate amount of cash would be approximately $2.1 million. If we were to pay this interest payment entirely in shares of common stock, the aggregate fair market value of the shares would be approximately $2.8 million."
That's a huge amount of stock - equal to about twelve days' volume. It's also equal to about 5 percent dilution of the common! Just from one quarterly interest payment!

Hey, this is great news. Cash only pays 0.05%, but stock... that stuff goes up 16% a month.
