The company also reestablished its quarterly dividend.

iRobot — The Roomba-maker’s stock climbed more than 3% after the company disclosed the resignation of Chief R&D Officer Tim Saeger. In an 8-K filing, iRobot said Sager will remain employed by the company until his successor is hired.

First Solar — Shares of the solar panel maker slipped 2.7% after the company announced a secondary stock offering of 8.6 million shares. Those shares will be sold by billionaire Lukas Walton.
