IT Tech Packaging, Inc. Announces Effectiveness of Reverse Stock Split
8 July 2022
IT Tech Packaging, Inc. a leading manufacturer and distributor of diversified paper products in North China, announced today that, its 1-for-10 reverse stock split (the "Reverse Stock Split"), which the Company previously disclosed was approved by the Board of Directors on June 27, 2022 is effective as of 5:00PM EST today on July 7, 2022 (the "Effective Date"), and will be reflected in the marketplace at market open on July 8, 2022.
The Reverse Stock Split, under applicable Nevada law (Nevada Revised Statutes ("NRS") Section 78.207), proportionately adjusted both the Company's (a) authorized shares of common stock; and (b) issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The Reverse Stock Split was effected by the Company filing a Certificate of Change (the "Certificate") pursuant to NRS Section 78.209 with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada on the Effective Date. As a result of the filing of the Certificate, the number of shares of the Company's authorized common stock was reduced from 500,000,000 shares to 50,000,000 shares and the issued and outstanding number of shares of the Company's common stock was correspondingly decreased.
On the Effective Date, the total number of shares of common stock held by each stockholder of the Company will be converted automatically into the number of shares of common stock equal to (i) the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock held by each such stockholder immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split, divided by (ii) 10, with such resulting number of shares rounded up to the nearest whole share. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split and no cash or other consideration will be paid in connection with any fractional shares that would otherwise have resulted from the Reverse Stock Split.
Stockholders who are holding their shares in electronic form at brokerage firms do not need to take any action, as the effect of the Reverse Stock Split will automatically be reflected in their brokerage accounts. Stockholders holding paper certificates may (but are not required to) send the certificates to the Company's transfer agent and registrar, Empire Stock Transfer. Empire Stock Transfer, at the address set forth below, will issue a new stock certificate reflecting the Reverse Stock Split to each requesting stockholder.
