Reverse splits have not worked out well for many companies that have used them in the past. Sun Microsystems, for instance, did a 1-for-4 reverse stock split back in November 2007, but after just a year, the shares had fallen 85% before bouncing in the wake of Oracle's (Nasdaq: ORCL) takeover of the tech giant. Even after paying a premium to the then-prevailing share price, longtime Sun shareholders didn't come close to recouping their losses.
Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) announced a handful of modems aimed at the Internet of Things (IoT) market at the beginning of this year, and this week the company proved how well they're doing. The company said the Snapdragon X5 (9x07) and MDM9207-1 modems have received 100 design wins from more than 60 original equipment manufacturers.
The two modems vary in their uses, with the X5 aimed at both mobile broadband and IoT devices. The modem can handle download speeds up to 150 Mbps, which is much higher than most IoT devices will need. Meanwhile, the MDM9207-1 has a maximum download speed of 10 Mbps and a power-save mode that enables it work for up to 10 years off just two AA batteries. That's a very important feature, as wide-scale IoT devices will need to last for years to be effectively deployed.
Qualcomm sees its MDM92070-1 modem being used in smart-city applications. "These uses include smart energy and metering, building security, infrastructure, industrial control and automation, retail point-of-sale, asset tracking, medical, lighting, and aftermarket telematics," the company said in a press release. Both of the modems have Linux OS support, an ARM Holdings-based Cortex A7 processor, integrated support for Qualcomm VIVE 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO technology, Bluetooth 4.2, Bluetooth Low Energy, and an integrated global navigation satellite system.
Qualcomm's no stranger to creating superior modems that are used across a broad spectrum of devices, so why are these modems so significant? Because Qualcomm is increasingly focusing its attention on earning more IoT revenue.
Even if a Reverse Stock Split is effected, it may not result in the intended benefits described above, including compliance with the Bid Price Rule, and the market price of our Common Stock may not increase following the Reverse Stock Split or even if it does, the market price of our Common Stock may decrease in the future. Additionally, the market price per share of our Common Stock after the Reverse Stock Split may not increase in proportion to the reduction in the number of shares of our Common Stock outstanding before the Reverse Stock Split. Accordingly, the total market capitalization of our Common Stock after the Reverse Stock Split may be lower than the total market capitalization before the Reverse Stock Split.
