Kiromic BioPharma Announces Reverse Stock Split
Upon effectiveness of the reverse stock split, every 30 shares of Kiromic common stock issued and outstanding as of the effective date will be automatically combined into one share of common stock. Outstanding equity-based awards and other outstanding equity rights will be proportionately adjusted. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Immediately after the reverse stock split becomes effective, the Company will have approximately 966,758 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. Stockholders of record otherwise entitled to receive a fractional share as a result of the reverse stock split will automatically be entitled to receive an additional fraction of a share of common stock to round up to the next whole share.
The reverse stock split is primarily intended to bring the Company into compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement.
“In addition to regaining compliance with Nasdaq’s continued-listing requirements, our shareholder-approved reverse stock split may make our stock more attractive to institutional investors and other members of the investing public, thereby providing for a stronger and more diverse investor base,” commented
