LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oblong, Inc. (Nasdaq: OBLG) (“Oblong” or the “Company”), the award-winning maker of multi-stream collaboration solutions, announced today that it has filed an amendment to its certificate of incorporation that will effect a reverse stock split of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock by a ratio of 1-for-15, as approved by the Company’s stockholders at its annual meeting and the Company’s board of directors. The reverse stock split will become effective at 5:00 PM Eastern Time on January 3, 2023, and the Company's shares of common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the Nasdaq Capital Market at the commencement of trading on January 4, 2023 under the Company's existing trading symbol “OBLG.”
The reverse stock split is intended to increase the per share trading value of the Company’s common stock to satisfy the Nasdaq Capital Market’s continued listing standards. The reverse stock split will be effected simultaneously for all outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock, and will affect all of the Company’s stockholders uniformly. At the Effective Time, every 15 issued and outstanding shares of common stock will be converted into one share of common stock. The Company’s common stock has been assigned a new CUSIP number of 674434204 in connection with the reverse stock split. The reverse stock split will not affect any stockholder’s percentage ownership interest in the Company, except to the extent that it results in any of the Company’s stockholders owning a fractional share, as any resulting fractional share will be rounded up to the nearest whole share. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of the Company’s common stock from approximately 30,816,048 shares to approximately 2,055,000 shares. The reverse stock split will not affect the number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock or the par value of a share of common stock. Proportionate adjustments will be made to the per share exercise price and the number of shares issuable upon the exercise or conversion of all outstanding options and warrants.

The Company’s transfer agent is also acting as the exchange agent for the reverse stock split, and will provide instructions to any stockholders holding certificated shares regarding the process for exchanging their share certificates.
Any fractional shares of common stock resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the nearest whole post-split share and no stockholders will receive cash in lieu of fractional shares.
