YARDLEY, Pa., Oct. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALQA) (“Alliqua or the “Company”), a regenerative technologies company committed to restoring tissue and rebuilding lives, today announced that the Company will effect a reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding common stock at an exchange ratio of 1-for-10, after the close of business on Thursday, October 5, 2017. The Company's common stock will begin trading on split-adjusted basis on Friday, October 6, 2017 under a new CUSIP number 019621309, and will remain listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "ALQA”.
The reverse stock split was previously approved by Alliqua's stockholders at the Company’s special meeting of stockholders on September 13, 2017. On October 2, 2017, the Company's Board of Directors approved the implementation of a reverse stock split and determined the appropriate reverse stock split to be a ratio of 1-for-10.
Upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, each ten shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined and converted into one issued and outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.001 per share. Proportional adjustments also will be made to the shares issuable in connection with the Company’s outstanding stock options and warrants. As a result of the reverse stock split, there will be approximately 4.9 million shares of common stock outstanding.
The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder's percentage interest in the Company's equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split would result in a stockholder owning a fractional share. Any fractional share of a stockholder resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the next whole number of shares.
Once the reverse stock split becomes effective, stockholders holding shares through a brokerage account will have their shares automatically adjusted to reflect the 1-for-10 reverse stock split. It is not necessary for shareholders holding shares of the Company’s common stock in certificated form to exchange their existing stock certificates for new stock certificates of the Company in connection with the reverse stock split, although stockholders may do so if they wish. Stockholders should direct any questions concerning the reverse stock split to their broker or the Company’s transfer agent, Action Stock Transfer Corporation, at (801) 274-1088.
