1-for-8 Effective March 11, 2019
GLEN ALLEN, Va., March 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactus Inc. (OTCQB: EXDI), a healthcare company pursuing opportunities in Hemp derived, Cannabidiol (CBD) products and point of care diagnostics, announced a reverse stock split of its shares of common stock at a ratio of 1-for-8.
The purpose of the reverse stock split is to initiate the process of positioning the company for a future listing application to a national exchange.
CEO, Phil Young commented, “Given our recent transition into a commercially focused hemp derived CBD company, we feel this split is occurring at the appropriate time as we transition into a revenue-generating company with a goal to list on a national exchange. The strides we have made since our mid-January announcement demonstrate that our new focus and strategy is resonating with the investment community and stakeholders. We look forward to an exciting year as we position the company for rapid growth while keeping our shareholder's interest at the center of our focus.”
The reverse split will occur at the market open Monday, March 11, 2019, when Exactus Inc. common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis. The Company's common stock will trade under the ticker symbol "EXDID" for 20 trading days after the reverse split has been effected, when the trading symbol will revert to "EXDI".
As a result of the reverse stock split, the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock will decrease to approximately 25,575,482 post-split shares (prior to effecting the rounding of fractional shares into whole shares as described below) from approximately 204,603,855 pre-split shares.
As a result of the reverse stock split, the total number of shares of common stock held by each stockholder will be converted automatically into the number of whole shares of common stock equal to the number of shares of common stock held by such stockholder immediately prior to the reverse stock split, divided by 8. No fractional shares will be issued, and no cash or other consideration will be paid. Instead, any stockholder who otherwise would have received a fractional share as a result of the reverse stock split will receive one whole share of the post-split common stock.
Stockholders who hold their shares in electronic form at their brokerage firms need not take any action, as the shares held in brokerage accounts will be automatically adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split. Stockholders holding paper certificates may (but are not required to) send the certificates to the Company's transfer agent at the address given below. The transfer agent will issue a new share certificate reflecting the terms of the reverse stock split to each requesting stockholder who submits its paper certificate.
