Clearwire Raises $290M More

Kirkland, WA-based wireless Internet service company Clearwire (NASDAQ: CLWR) said late Monday that it has raised an additional $290.8 million through a public market rights offering. The company said its shareholders exercised rights to purchase approximately 39.7 million shares of Class A common stock for the aggregate price. Back in November, Clearwire received a $1.5 billion investment led by Sprint Nextel, much of which was given in support of the company’s WiMax broadband network, which rolled out in Seattle in December.
