Nutriband Inc. announced on July 27, 2022 that its Board of Directors had approved and declared a 7:6 forward split of its common stock with a record date of Monday, August 15, 2022 (the “Stock Split”). Each shareholder of record as of the record date will receive one (1) additional share of common stock for each six (6) shares held as of the record date.. No fractional shares of common stock will be issued in connection with the Stock Split. Instead, all fractional shares will be rounded up to the next whole share. The payment date for the Stock Split will be August 25, 2022, and the Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis at the opening of the market on Friday, August 12, 2022, the ex-dividend date for the common stock.
The Company currently has a total of 6,684,673 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. Following the proposed Stock Split, the Company will have a total of approximately 7,798,785 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. The par value of the common stock will not be affected by the Stock Split. Each stockholder of the Company will hold the same percentage of common stock outstanding immediately following the Stock Split as such stockholder held immediately prior to the Stock Split.
The Company anticipates that the Stock Split will increase liquidity in the trading of the Company’s common stock and will make its shares more accessible to investors.
The Stock Split was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors on July 15, 2022. In connection with the Stock Split, which did not require shareholder approval under the Nevada corporation law, the number of authorized shares of common stock of the Company was increased in the same ratio as the shares of outstanding common stock were increased in the Stock Split, from 250,000,000 authorized shares to 291, 666,666 authorized shares. The Stock Split was effected by the filing of the Certificate of Change, effective August 15, 2022, with the Nevada Secretary of State which authorized the Stock Split and provided for the increase in the Company’s authorized common stock in the same ratio as the Stock Split. No other stockholder approval is required or necessary.
‘Our core goal is to continue to create value for our shareholders following a string of key milestones for the Company in recent months’ said Gareth Sheridan, CEO.
