Birkirkara, Malta, February 6, 2020 – Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCQB: GMBLD) (or the “Company”), a licensed online gambling company with a focus on esports wagering and 18+ gaming, has successfully completed a “reverse split” of its shares of common stock at a ratio of 1-for-15 (1:15). The Company’s common stock began trading on a post-split basis on Monday, January 27, 2020 under the trading symbol “GMBLD.” The “D” lettering will be removed within 20 business days from the effective date of the reverse split, and the symbol will revert to the original lettering of “GMBL.” In connection with the reverse stock split, the Company’s CUSIP number will change to 29667K306
The reverse stock split was implemented by the Company in connection with its proposed application to uplist the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market (NASDAQ). The reverse stock split is an action intended to fulfill the stock price requirements for official listing on NASDAQ, which requires that the Company’s common stock must be $4.00 or higher at the time of listing. There can be no assurance that the Company will satisfy other applicable requirements for listing its common stock on NASDAQ or that the Company’s application to uplist its common stock will be approved.
“This reverse split is another major step forward in our long-term strategic growth plan, which includes listing our common stock on a major U.S. exchange,” said CEO Grant Johnson. “We expect a NASDAQ listing will generate even greater interest in our company from the broader national and international investment community, as well as, potential partners in the esports as a result of our transparency. We appreciate the continued support of our employees, partners, and shareholders as we work to realize our operational and capital markets goals.”
As a result of the 1:15 reverse stock split, every 15 shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock will be converted into one share of issued and outstanding common stock. The number of authorized shares will remain unchanged.
No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the stock split. Any fractional shares of common stock resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the nearest whole share. It is not necessary for stockholders to exchange their existing stock certificates for new stock certificates in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders who hold their shares in brokerage accounts are not required to take any action to exchange their shares.
