AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 19, 2012) - Active Power (
As described in the proxy materials, Active Power will hold its special shareholders meeting at the company's headquarters in Austin, Texas, on Dec. 17, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. Central time to consider approval of the reverse split. Shareholders of record on Nov. 12, 2012, will receive notice of the special meeting and are entitled to vote at the meeting. Further details of the special meeting and reverse split are set forth in the proxy materials filed today.
Additional Information Regarding Proposed Transaction
The company anticipates a reverse stock split would raise the per share trading price of Active Power common stock to regain compliance with the $1.00 per share minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. As previously disclosed, to maintain the listing of its common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market, on or before Dec. 17, 2012, Active Power's common stock must have a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 prior consecutive trading days. There can be no assurance a reverse stock split will have the desired effect of raising the closing bid price of Active Power common stock to enable the company to meet this requirement.
This press release is not a solicitation of shareholders or their votes on the proposed reverse split. Active Power urges investors to review the proxy statement and other information filed with the SEC because it contains important information. These documents are available without charge on the SEC website at www.sec.gov. A free copy of the definitive proxy statement may also be obtained from Active Power through its investor relations contacts. Investors should read the proxy statement carefully before making any voting decision.
