Common Stock Will Begin Trading on Split-Adjusted Basis on February 15, 2024
MyMD Pharmaceuticals, Inc.® (Nasdaq: MYMD) (“MyMD” or “the Company”), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company committed to developing novel therapies for age-related diseases, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions, announced today that it intends to effect a reverse stock split of its common stock at a ratio of 1 post-split share for every 30 pre-split shares. The reverse stock split will become effective at 4:05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, February 14, 2024. MyMD’s common stock will continue to be traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol MYMD and will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on Thursday, February 15, 2024. The new CUSIP number for MyMD’s common stock following the reverse stock split will be 62856X201.
At the effective time of the reverse stock split, every 30 shares of MyMD’s issued and outstanding common stock will be converted automatically into one issued and outstanding share of common stock without any change in the par value per share. Simultaneously therewith, the number of shares of common stock that the Company shall have authority to issue will be reduced by a factor of 30 from 500,000,000 shares to 16,666,666 shares. Stockholders holding shares through a brokerage account will have their shares automatically adjusted to reflect the 1‑for-30 reverse stock split. It is not necessary for stockholders holding shares of the Company’s common stock in certificated form to exchange their existing stock certificates for new stock certificates of the Company in connection with the reverse stock split, although stockholders may do so if they wish.
The reverse stock split will affect 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 would result in a stockholder owning a fractional share. Any fractional share of a stockholder resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the nearest whole number of shares. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of MyMD’s common stock outstanding from 62,749,125 shares to approximately 2,091,638 shares, subject to adjustment for the rounding up of fractional shares. Proportional adjustments will be made to the number of shares of MyMD’s common stock issuable upon exercise or conversion of MyMD’s equity awards, convertible preferred stock and warrants, as well as the applicable exercise or conversion price. Stockholders with shares in brokerage accounts should direct any questions concerning the reverse stock split to their broker; all other stockholders may direct questions to the Company’s transfer agent, Securities Transfer Corporation, via email at [email protected] or phone at (469) 633-0101.
