DANBURY, Conn., May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FuelCell Energy, Inc. (FCEL), a global leader in delivering clean, innovative and affordable fuel cell solutions for the supply, recovery and storage of energy, today announced that a 1-for-12 reverse stock split will become effective at 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, today and that trading of the Company’s common stock on a post-split basis will begin on May 9, 2019.
Today, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to effect a reverse stock split of its common stock at a ratio of 1-for-12. Trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market will continue under the symbol “FCEL.” The new CUSIP number for the Company’s common stock following the reverse stock split will be 35952H 601.
No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split. A holder of record of common stock on the effective date of the reverse stock split who would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a share will instead be entitled to receive a cash payment for the fractional interest.
The Company’s transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, will act as exchange agent for the reverse stock split.
- Stockholders owning shares via a broker or other nominee will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split, subject to brokers’ particular processes, and will not be required to take any action in connection with the reverse stock split.
- Registered stockholders holding pre-split shares of the Company’s common stock electronically in book-entry form are not required to take any action to receive post-split shares.
- Stockholders of record holding certificates representing pre-split shares of the Company’s common stock as of the effective time will receive a letter of transmittal from American Stock Transfer & Trust Company providing instructions regarding (i) the exchange of shares and (ii) how to receive their cash payment in lieu of fractional shares, if applicable.
The reverse stock split will not change the total number of shares of common stock or preferred stock authorized for issuance by the Company. Additionally, the par value of the Company’s common stock will remain at $0.0001 per share.
The stockholders of the Company approved the reverse stock split at the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on April 4, 2019, and the Board of Directors of the Company subsequently approved the implementation of the reverse stock split at the ratio of 1-for-12.
