YOKNEAM ILIT, Israel and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., March 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ReWalk Robotics Ltd. ( RWLK ) (“ ReWalk ” or the “ Company ”) reported today that it has completed the reverse share split of ReWalk ordinary share at a ratio of one-for-twenty-five shares, which will take effect on April 1, 2019. The Company also increased its authorized and registered share capital and amended its Articles of Association to reflect the reverse share split and the increase in share capital. Following the reverse share split and increase in authorized share capital, the total number of ordinary shares that the Company is authorized to issue will be 60 million shares, the par value per share of the ordinary shares will be NIS 0.25 and the authorized share capital of the Company will be NIS 15 million.
At the Company’s annual shareholder meeting held on March 27, 2019, the Company’s shareholders approved a reverse share split (including the relevant amendments to the Articles of Association of the Company) within a range of 1:8 to 1:32, to be effective at the ratio and on a date to be determined by the Board, and amendments to the Company’s Articles of Association authorizing an increase in the Company’s authorized share capital (and corresponding authorized ordinary shares) by up to NIS 17.5 million.
ReWalk’s ordinary shares will begin trading on a post-split basis at market open on April 1, 2019. ReWalk ordinary shares continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “RWLK”, although a new CUSIP number M8216Q 200 has been assigned to the Company’s ordinary shares because of the reverse share split.
As a result of the reverse share split, every twenty-five ordinary shares of ReWalk issued and outstanding were automatically combined and reclassified into one ordinary share of ReWalk. Appropriate adjustments were also made to all outstanding derivative securities of the Company, including all outstanding equity awards and warrants.
No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse share split, and all fractional shares (including shares underlying outstanding equity awards and warrants) will be rounded down to the nearest whole number.
