1-for-8 Reverse Stock Split and Adjustment of Authorized Shares July 13 Effective Date
STAMFORD, CT – Cenveo, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: CVO) announced today a reverse split of its common stock, $0.01 par value, at a ratio of 1-for-8, effective July 13, 2016, and that the Company’s common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on July 14, 2016. In addition, the Company also announced that the authorized common stock of the Company will be increased from 100 million to 120 million shares and then adjusted in the reverse split from 120 million to 15 million shares. All of the foregoing matters were approved by the Company’s stockholders at the annual meeting of the stockholders held on May 26, 2016. The Company's common stock will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the trading symbol "CVO" but will trade under the new CUSIP number 15670S 402. As a result of the reverse split, each eight pre- split shares of common stock outstanding will automatically combine into one new share of common stock without any action on the part of the holders, and the number of outstanding common shares will be reduced from approximately 68.5 million to approximately 8.5 million shares. The reverse split will also apply to common stock issuable upon the exchange of the Company’s outstanding exchangeable notes and upon the exercise of the Company’s outstanding warrants and stock options.
The Company's transfer agent, Computershare, which is also acting as the exchange agent for the reverse split, will provide instructions to stockholders regarding the process for exchanging shares. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse split and stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to a fractional share will receive, in lieu thereof, a cash payment which shall represent a pro-rata portion of the net proceeds (after customary brokerage commissions and other expenses) attributable to the post-split sale into the market of all the fractional shares resulting from the stock split.
Robert G. Burton, Sr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated:
“The reverse stock split will allow us to satisfy the NYSE minimum share price requirement and cure the previously announced delisting issue relating to that requirement. This is a mechanical change to our capital structure and does not have any impact on Cenveo’s operations. We continue to have confidence in our business and in the long term prospects of our company.”
