MOTORSPORT GAMES ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED 1-FOR-10 REVERSE STOCK SPLIT.
Is this the slow downfall and demise of Motorsport Games as the company has notified NASDAQ that the Company is not in compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules requiring minimum of 500,000 publicly held shares.
MIAMI – As previously announced, Motorsport Games Inc. (NASDAQ: MSGM) (“Motorsport Games” or the “Company”) confirmed today that the 1-for-10 reverse stock split of the Company’s Class A and Class B common stock became effective as of 12:01 a.m. EST on November 10, 2022 (the “Effective Time”).
Motorsport Games effected the reverse stock split by filing a charter amendment with the Delaware Secretary of State. The reverse stock split was previously approved by the Company’s Board of Directors and stockholders pursuant to Sections 228 and 242 of the Delaware General Corporation Law.
The Company’s Class A common stock began trading on the NASDAQ on a split-adjusted basis when the market opened today, November 10, 2022, under a new CUSIP number, 62011B 201.
As a result of the reverse stock split, each 10 shares of the Company’s Class A and Class B common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time were automatically combined into 1 share of Class A common stock and Class B common stock, respectively, subject to the elimination of fractional shares, as described below.
The same 1-for-10 reverse stock split ratio was used to effect the reverse stock split of both Motorsport Games Class A and Class B common stock, and accordingly, all stockholders were affected proportionately. The reverse stock split reduced the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock from approximately 11,673,587 shares of Class A common stock and 7,000,000 shares of Class B common stock to approximately 1,167,358 and 700,000 shares, respectively.
The number of shares of Class A common stock subject to the Company’s outstanding employee and director stock options, as well as the relevant exercise price per share, will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split. Accordingly, the approximately 821,962 outstanding stock options will be reduced to approximately 82,196 outstanding stock options. The number of shares authorized for issuance under the Company’s stock plan will also be reduced from 1,000,000 shares of Class A common stock to 100,000 shares of Class A common stock using the same 1-for-10 split ratio.
The Company has notified NASDAQ that the Company is not in compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules requiring minimum of 500,000 publicly held shares.
