Strong Global Entertainment, a maker of premium projection screens being spun out of Ballantyne Strong, lowered the proposed deal size for its upcoming IPO on Wednesday. In its latest filing, the company also disclosed financials for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

The Charlotte, NC-based company now plans to raise $10 million by offering 2 million shares at $5. The company had previously filed to offer 3 million shares at the same price. At the revised terms, Strong Global Entertainment will raise -33% less in proceeds than previously anticipated.

If the company's market cap is below $50 million at pricing, Strong Global Entertainment will be excluded from Renaissance Capital's 2022 IPO stats.
