The San Diego, CA-based company now plans to raise $47 million by offering 6.7 million shares at a price range of $6 to $8. The company had previously filed to offer 4.0 million shares at a range of $14 to $16. At the midpoint of the revised range, Fate Therapeutics would raise 22% fewer proceeds than previously anticipated.

Fate Therapeutics initially filed confidentially on June 20, 2013. Cowen & Company and BMO Capital Markets are the joint bookrunners on the deal. It is expected to price during the week of September 30, 2013.
