CALGARY, May 14, 2019 /CNW/ – Willow Biosciences Inc. (“Willow” or the “Company“) (CSE: WLLW) announces that it will be consolidating all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post‐consolidation Common Share for each twenty-five (25) pre‐consolidation Common Shares (the “Consolidation”).
The Corporation’s board of directors set May 17, 2019 as the effective date of the Consolidation. Trading of the Common Shares on a post-Consolidation basis on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) will commence on or about May 21, 2019. The Company’s name and trading symbol will remain unchanged.
The 1,733,769,074 Common Shares currently issued and outstanding will be reduced to approximately 69,350,763 Common Shares on a post-Consolidation basis. No fractional shares will be issued. Any fractional interest in Common Shares that is less than 0.5 of a Common Share resulting from the Consolidation will be rounded down to the nearest whole Common Share and any fractional interest in Common Shares that is 0.5 or greater of a Common Share will be rounded up to the nearest whole Common Share.
Letter of transmittals will be mailed to registered Shareholders and registered Shareholders will be required to deposit their share certificate(s), together with the duly completed letter of transmittal, with Alliance Trust Company, the Company’s registrar and transfer agent. Non-registered Shareholders holding Common Shares through an intermediary (a securities broker, dealer, bank or financial institution) should be aware that the intermediary may have different procedures for processing the Consolidation than those that will be put in place by the Company for registered Shareholders. If Shareholders hold their Common Shares through intermediaries and have questions in this regard, they are encouraged to contact their intermediaries.
Outstanding stock options and share purchase warrants will also be adjusted by the Consolidation ratio and the respective exercise prices of outstanding options and share purchase warrants will be adjusted accordingly.
