Route1 Announces Its Intention to Consolidate Its Common Shares

TORONTO, July 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Route1 Inc. (OTCQB: ROIUF and TSXV: ROI) (the “Company” or “Route1”), an advanced North American provider of industrial-grade data intelligence, user authentication and ultra-secure mobile workforce solutions, today announced that it intends to apply to the Toronto Venture Exchange in order to consolidate its outstanding common shares on the basis of one new share for ten existing shares. Upon completion of the share consolidation, and using today’s common shares outstanding count of 373,455,000, Route1 will have 37,345,500 common shares outstanding (subject to reduction based on any future purchases by the Company under its active Normal Course Issuer Bid program). 

The proposed share consolidation is subject to all regulatory approvals. The shareholders of the Company previously authorized the Company to undertake a share consolidation at the annual and general and special meeting held on November 26, 2018.

Route1 believes that the current number of shares outstanding is not reflective of the Company’s growth and development over the past 18 months.  During that time, the Company has made two significant acquisitions and has substantially increased its revenue and operating cash flow.

A sustained higher per share price of the common shares, which the Company would expect as a result of the 10-for-one consolidation, is expected to heighten the interest of the financial community including that of research analysts in the Company and broaden the pool of investors that may consider investing in the Company, potentially increasing the trading volume and liquidity of the Common Shares. As a matter of policy, many institutional investors are prohibited from purchasing shares below certain minimum price levels.
