Several technology companies moved to raise more capital Tuesday, with financial software house Great Plains Software Inc and network security firm Internet Security Systems Inc both completing public offerings of common stock, as internet advertising software provider NetGravity Inc filed with the SEC for an offering of its own. Great Plains sold 2.0 million shares at $38 per share. Of the total, 1.235 million were sold by the company, netting it roughly $44m. The proceeds are expected to be used for general corporate purposes, product development, capital expenditures and possible acquisitions.
