CNS Pharmaceuticals Announces Reverse Stock Split
HOUSTON, TX (November 28, 2022) – CNS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) (“CNS” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers in the brain and central nervous system, today announced a 1-for-30 reverse split of its common stock, effective at 4:01 PM ET today. Beginning on November 29, 2022, the Company’s common stock will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) on a split adjusted basis under the trading symbol “CNSP”, but will trade under the following new CUSIP number: 18978H201.
The reverse stock split was approved by CNS Pharmaceuticals’ stockholders at the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders. The reverse stock split is primarily intended to increase the Company’s per share trading price and bring the Company into compliance with the Nasdaq’s listing requirement regarding minimum share price.
As a result of the reverse stock split, every 30 shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of the effective date will be automatically combined into one share of common stock. Outstanding warrants, equity-based awards and other outstanding equity rights will be proportionately adjusted by dividing the shares of common stock underlying the securities by 30 and multiplying the exercise/conversion price, as the case may be, by 30. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Stockholders of record who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share will be entitled to the rounding up of the fractional share to the nearest whole number. The par value of the common stock will remain unchanged at $0.001 per share after the reverse split, and the number of authorized shares of common stock will remain at 75 million shares. The reverse split affects all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder’s percentage interest in the Company’s equity, except to the extent that the reverse split results in some stockholders owning a fractional share as described above.
