SINGAPORE, March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SINGAPORE, March 15, 2019 -- Reebonz Holding Limited (the “Company” or “Reebonz”) (Nasdaq: RBZ), a leading online luxury marketplace and platform in Southeast Asia, today announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) approved a 1-for-8 reverse stock split of the Company’s authorized and outstanding ordinary shares, to be effective with the opening of trading on Nasdaq on Monday, March 15, 2019. The Company’s ticker symbol, RBZ, will remain unchanged. The Company’s ordinary shares will trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis under the CUSIP number G7457R122.
At a special meeting held on February 19, 2019, the holders of a majority of the Company’s outstanding shares of ordinary shares approved the reverse stock split and gave the Board discretionary authority to select a ratio for the split ranging from 1-for-2 to 1-for-10. The Board approved the reverse stock split on a 1-for-8 ratio on March 4, 2019.
As a result of the reverse stock split, the total number of shares of ordinary shares held by each shareholder on March 15, 2019 will be converted automatically into the number of whole shares of ordinary shares equal to the number of shares of ordinary shares held by the shareholder immediately prior to the reverse stock split divided by 8. As a result of the reverse stock split, the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of ordinary shares will decrease to approximately 2.7 million post-split shares (prior to effecting the rounding of fractional shares into whole shares as described below) from approximately 21.5 million pre-split shares. When the reverse split takes effect, shareholders holding ordinary shares in book-entry form or shares through a brokerage account will have their shares automatically adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split on the effective date, March 15, 2019.
No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to a fractional share because they hold a number of shares not evenly divisible by the 1-for-8 reverse split ratio will automatically be entitled to receive an additional fractional share of the Company’s ordinary shares to round up to the next whole share.
The reverse stock split will affect all issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s ordinary shares, as well as the number of shares of ordinary shares available for issuance under the Company’s equity incentive plans and warrants. In addition, the reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options or warrants outstanding immediately prior to the reverse split and correspondingly increase the respective exercise prices. The reverse stock split will affect all shareholders uniformly and will not alter any shareholder’s percentage interest in the Company’s equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split results in some shareholders experiencing an adjustment of a fractional share as described above.
