NEW YORK, Dec. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Recon Technology, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RCON) (“Recon” or the “Company”) announced today that the Company’s Board approved on December 10, 2019 to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s ordinary shares at the ratio of one-for-five with the market effective date of December 27, 2019.
The objective of the reverse stock split is to enable the Company to regain compliance with the NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2) and maintain its listing on Nasdaq.
Beginning with the opening of trading on December 27, 2019, the Company’s ordinary shares will trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis, under the same symbol “RCON” but under a new CUSIP Number, G7415M124.
The reverse stock split will reduce the number of ordinary shares issued and outstanding from approximately 23,049,639 to approximately 4,609,928 (subject to adjustment due to the effect of rounding fractional shares into whole shares). The authorized number of ordinary shares will be reduced by the same one-for-five ratio to 20,000,000.
As a result of the reverse stock split, each five pre-split ordinary shares outstanding will automatically combine and convert to one issued and outstanding ordinary share without any action on the part of the shareholder. No fractional ordinary shares will be issued to any shareholders in connection with the reverse stock split. Each shareholder will be entitled to receive one ordinary share in lieu of the fractional share that would have resulted from the reverse stock split.
