180 Degree Capital Corp. Effects 1-for-3 Reverse Stock Split
MONTCLAIR, N.J., Jan. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 180 Degree Capital Corp. (NASDAQ:TURN) (“180” and the “Company”), today noted that its previously announced 1-for-3 reverse stock split of the Company's common stock (the "Common Stock") became effective prior to the opening of trading on Nasdaq, and that the Common Stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis at the opening of trading today under the new CUSIP number 68235B208.
As a result of the reverse stock split, each 3 shares of issued Common Stock were converted into 1 share of Common Stock. The reverse stock split affected all stockholders uniformly and did not alter any stockholder's percentage ownership interest in the Company, except to the extent that the reverse stock split resulted in any of the Company's stockholders owning a fractional share. Shareholders will receive cash in lieu of any fraction of a share that they would have otherwise been entitled to receive as a result of the reverse stock split. The reverse stock split reduced the number of shares of outstanding Common Stock from approximately 31.1 million to approximately 10.4 million. The number of authorized shares of Common Stock under the Company's Amended Certificate of Incorporation has been proportionately reduced from 45 million shares to 15 million shares.
American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, the Company's transfer agent, is acting as the exchange agent in connection with the reverse stock split. Shareholders holding Common Stock in certificated form will receive instructions from the transfer agent on how to surrender the certificates representing the pre-split shares in exchange for the new book-entry shares in electronic form. Shareholders who hold their shares electronically or in street name are not required to take any action to effect the exchange of their shares.
