Singapore, September 5, 2023 (NewMediaWire). JE Cleantech Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: JCSE) today announced the results of the Company’s Extraordinary General Meeting of Members (the “Extraordinary Meeting”) held on August 29, 2023, at the Company’s offices located at 3 Woodlands Sector 1, Singapore.
At the Extraordinary Meeting, the members approved and authorized a consolidation of the Company’s Ordinary Shares (“Reverse Stock Split”) of the Company’s issued Ordinary Shares in a range from 1 for 1.5 to 1 for 10 Ordinary Shares (the “Range”). The Board of Directors may elect to either: (i) effect the Reverse Stock Split; or (ii) not effect the Reverse Stock Split; within the Range at any time during the next 12 months.
The Company may effect the Reverse Stock Split within the Range in order to regain full compliance with the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC’s (“Nasdaq”) share price listing rule (“Rule”). The Rule requires that the bid price for the Company’s Ordinary Shares must close at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during the compliance period ending October 28, 2023.
A Reverse Stock Split would reduce the total number of JCSE’s issued and outstanding Ordinary Shares, which is expected to result in an increase in the trading price per share. The objective of the Reverse Stock Split, if effected, will be to ensure that the Company regains full compliance with the Rule and maintains its listing on Nasdaq.
