Common Stock to be Reverse Split in advance of Planned Nasdaq Listing
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 25, 2019 / Newgioco Group, Inc. (“Newgioco” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:NWGI), a global sports betting and gaming technology company providing fully integrated software solutions to online and land-based gaming and sports betting operators, announces that the Board of Directors of the Company approved a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at the ratio of one (1) share of Common Stock for every eight (8) shares of Common Stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”), with an effective date of December 12, 2019. The Reverse Stock Split was approved by holders of 62.7% of the total issued and outstanding shares of voting stock of the Company on September 23, 2019. No fractional shares will be issued under the stock consolidation and any fraction will be rounded to the nearest whole number.
“We have elected a Reverse Stock Split to potentially allow Newgioco to meet the listing requirements of The Nasdaq Capital Market,” stated Michele (Mike) Ciavarella, Newgioco Chief Executive Officer. “As one of the only end-to-end, omnichannel betting technology solution providers in the world, operators using older betting platforms have continued to switch to Newgioco’s ELYS platform for its superior bet risk management, customisation, speed, reliability and cost-effectiveness.”
“Our year-over-year growth has been exceptional, proving that ELYS continues to gain strong demand from retail and online gaming operators throughout the highly competitive Italian leisure betting market while our penetration into key global markets through partnerships with restaurant, bar, tavern, convenience store and a variety of private venue operators continues to expand,” explained Ciavarella. “Our Board believes that a listing on Nasdaq can provide a substantial benefit to our stockholders by improving liquidity and increasing the appeal of our stock to institutional investors.”
With the successful implementation of the Reverse Stock Split and provided that the Company’s common stock meets the Nasdaq minimum bid price requirement, the Company believes it should meet the requirements for listing its common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market.
