MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FOXO Technologies Inc. (NYSE American: FOXO) (“FOXO” or the “Company”), a leader in the field of commercializing epigenetic biomarker technology, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 (the “Common Stock”). The reverse stock split will become effective at 4:01pm ET on November 6, 2023. The Common Stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the NYSE American under the same symbol “FOXO” when the market opens on November 7, 2023, with the new CUSIP number 351471305.
The reverse stock split was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the Company’s 2023 Annual Meeting, held on May 26, 2023, at a ratio ranging from 1-for-10 to 1-for-100. As a result of the reverse stock split, every 10 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding will be automatically combined into one share of Common Stock, with no change in the $0.0001 par value per share. Holders of fractional shares will be entitled to receive the number of shares rounded up to the next whole number.
The reverse stock split is being effected after the Board of Director’s consideration of a variety of factors, including the current trading price of the Common Stock and the NYSE American continued listing requirements. The Company does not expect the reverse stock split to impact its current or future business operations.
All outstanding stock options, warrants, and equity incentive plans will be proportionately affected. The exercise prices and the number of shares issuable upon exercise, of the outstanding stock options and warrants, and the number of shares available for future issuance under the equity incentive plans, will be adjusted in accordance with their respective terms. The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not affect any stockholder’s ownership percentage of the Company’s shares with the exception of those holders of fractional shares.
Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“CST”), the Company’s transfer agent, will act as the exchange agent for the reverse stock split. CST will provide instructions to stockholders with physical certificates regarding the process for exchanging their certificates for split-adjusted shares into “book-entry form” and receiving adjustment for fractional shares, if any. Those stockholders with Common Stock in “street name” will receive instructions from their brokers.
