IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ToughBuilt Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBLT) (“ToughBuilt” or the “Company”), today announced that it intends to effect a reverse stock split of its common stock at a ratio of 1 post-split share for every 65 pre-split shares. The reverse stock split will become effective at 4:30 p.m., New York time, on January 1, 2024.

At the Company’s annual stockholders’ meeting held on December 11, 2023, ToughBuilt’s stockholders granted the Company’s Board of Directors the discretion to effect a reverse stock split of ToughBuilt’s common stock through an amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, at a ratio of not less than 1-for-20 and not more than 1-for-100, such ratio to be determined by the Company’s Board of Directors.

At the effective time of the reverse stock split, every 65 shares of ToughBuilt’s issued and outstanding common stock will be converted automatically into 1 issued and outstanding share of common stock without any change in the $0.0001 par value per share. Stockholders holding shares through a brokerage account will have their shares of common stock automatically adjusted to reflect the 1-for-65 reverse stock split. It is not necessary for stockholders holding shares of the Company’s common stock in certificated form to exchange their existing stock certificates for new stock certificates of the Company in connection with the reverse stock split, although stockholders may do so if they wish.

The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder’s percentage interest in the Company’s equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split would result in a stockholder owning a fractional share. Any fractional share of a stockholder resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the nearest whole number of shares. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of ToughBuilt’s common stock outstanding from 36,915,222 shares to approximately 567,927 shares. Proportional adjustments will be made to the number of shares of ToughBuilt’s common stock issuable upon exercise or conversion of ToughBuilt’s equity awards and warrants, as well as the applicable exercise price. Stockholders whose shares are held in brokerage accounts should direct any questions concerning the reverse stock split to their broker.
