LiNiu Technology Group (f/k/a Iao Kun Group Holding Company Limited) (“LINU” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LINU), which launched its electronic trading platform focused on the Chinese agricultural industry in April 2017 through Guangzhou LiNiu Network Technology Co., Ltd. (“Guangzhou LiNiu”), today announced that its shareholders have approved a one-for-six reverse share split of LINU’s issued and outstanding shares, and the split will become effective at 12:01 am on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. The reverse split is intended to increase the per share trading price of LINU’s common stock to enable the Company to satisfy the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market.
The 1-for-6 reverse share split will automatically convert six current shares of LINU's common stock into one new share of common stock. No fractional shares will be issued, and no cash or other consideration will be paid. Instead, LINU will issue one whole share of the post-split common stock to any shareholder of record who otherwise would have received a fractional share as a result of the reverse share split. The reverse split will reduce the number of shares of outstanding common stock from approximately 74.9 million to approximately 12.5 million.
Trading in LINU’s common stock on a split-adjusted basis is expected to begin at market open on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. LINU’s common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under its existing symbol LINU with a new CUSIP number of G54971208. Shareholders’ ability to trade in LINU’s common stock should be unaffected by the reverse share split.
