Alzamend Neuro Announces Reverse Stock Split
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alzamend Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALZN) (“Alzamend” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel products for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (“Alzheimer’s”), bipolar disorder (“BD”), major depressive disorder (“MDD”) and post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”), today announced that Alzamend’s board of directors approved a one-for-fifteen reverse stock split of Alzamend’s common stock (“Common Stock”) that will be effective in the State of Delaware at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on October 31, 2023. Beginning with the opening of trading on October 31, 2023, the Company’s Common Stock will trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis under the Company’s existing trading symbol “ALZN”. The new CUSIP number for the Common Stock will be 02262M407. The reverse stock split is part of the Company’s plan to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement of $1.00 per share required to maintain continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, among other benefits.
The reverse stock split affects all issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock, as well as the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under the Company’s equity incentive plans. In addition, the reverse stock split reduces the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of stock options or warrants outstanding immediately prior to the reverse split. The par value of the Company’s Common Stock will remain unchanged at $0.0001 per share after the reverse stock split. The reverse stock split affects all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder’s percentage interest in the Company’s equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split results in some stockholders owning a fractional share. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse split. Stockholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share will instead receive a cash payment.
Computershare Trust Company, N.A. (“Computershare”), is acting as the exchange agent and transfer agent for the reverse stock split. Computershare will provide instructions to stockholders for receiving payment for any fractional shares.
