InMed Announces Share Consolidation to Meet Nasdaq Listing Criteria
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“InMed” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: INM), a leader in the research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of rare cannabinoids, today announces, pursuant to a directors’ resolution, InMed will be consolidating all of its issued and outstanding share capital on the basis of one (1) post‐consolidation share for each twenty five (25) pre‐consolidation common shares of the Company (the “Consolidation”) in order to regain compliance with all of Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements.
The Consolidation will result in the number of issued and outstanding common shares of the Company being reduced from 18,014,937 to approximately 720,597 common shares on a non-diluted basis and each shareholder will hold the same percentage of common shares outstanding immediately after the Consolidation as such shareholder held immediately prior to the Consolidation.
The exercise price and number of common shares of the Company issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options, warrants or other convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the Consolidation in accordance with the terms of such securities. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Per the requirements of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia), under which the Company is regulated, if fractional shares are to be converted into whole shares, each fractional share remaining after the completion of the Consolidation that is less than half of a share must be cancelled and each fractional share that is at least half of a share must be rounded up to one whole share.
The Company’s common shares will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the Nasdaq Capital Market commencing at the market open, September 7, 2022. The Company’s trading symbol “INM” will remain unchanged, while the common shares will begin trading with a new CUSIP number of 457637601 and a new ISIN number of CA4576376012.
Registered shareholders holding physical share certificates will receive by mail a letter of transmittal advising of the Consolidation and containing instructions. Holders of common shares of the Company who hold uncertificated common shares (i.e., common shares held in book-entry form and not represented by a physical share certificate), either as registered holders or beneficial owners, will have their existing book-entry account(s) electronically adjusted by the Company's transfer agent or, for beneficial shareholders, by their brokerage firms, banks, trusts or other nominees that hold in "street name" for their benefit. Such holders do not need to take any additional actions to exchange their pre-Consolidation common shares for post-Consolidation common shares.
