BEIJING, Aug. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shineco, Inc. ("Shineco" or the "Company"; Nasdaq: TYHT), a producer and distributor of Chinese herbal medicines, organic agricultural and hemp products, as well as various health and well-being-focused plant-based products in China, announced today that the Company's common stock will trade on a split-adjusted basis following the implementation of a reverse stock split at the ratio of one-for-nine shares on The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) effective with the open of the market on Monday, August 17, 2020.
The objective of the reverse stock split is to increase the market price for the Company’s common stock, which will in turn enable the Company to evidence compliance with the $1.00 bid price requirement under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) and to maintain its listing on Nasdaq. The Company believes the increased market price for its common stock following the reverse stock split will improve the marketability and liquidity of, and encourage additional interest and trading in, the Company’s common stock.
The reverse stock split will take effect at 4:01pm Eastern time on August 14, 2020, with the Company’s common stock to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on Nasdaq effective at the open of the market on Monday, August 17, 2020. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of common shares issued and outstanding from approximately 27.3 million to approximately 3.0 million (subject to adjustment due to the effect of rounding fractional shares into whole shares).
As a result of the reverse stock split, each nine pre-split shares of common stock outstanding will automatically combine and convert to one issued and outstanding share of common stock without any action on the part of the stockholder. No fractional shares of common stock will be issued to any shareholders in connection with the reverse stock split. Each shareholder will be entitled to receive one shares of common stock in lieu of the fractional share that would have resulted from the reverse stock split.
