Item 8.01. Other Events.
On July 15, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Sequential Brands Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Sequential”) approved implementation of a 1 share-for-40 shares (1:40) reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of the Company’s shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”). The Reverse Stock Split will become effective on July 27, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. ET and the Common Stock will begin trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis on July 27, 2020.
The Company’s stockholders had previously approved a reverse split ratio of 1 share-for-10 shares up to a ratio of 1 share-for-40 shares with the exact ratio to be determined by the Board. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split every 40 shares shall automatically be reclassified, combined and converted into one share of Common Stock. The Reverse Stock Split will reduce the number of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock from approximately 66 million shares to approximately 1.6 million shares. The number of authorized shares of Common Stock will remain unadjusted as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who would otherwise hold fractional shares because the number of shares of common stock they hold before the Reverse Stock Split is not evenly divisible by the split ratio will be entitled to receive a cash payment (without interest and subject to applicable withholding taxes) in lieu of such fractional shares. The fair value of fractional shares will be calculated using a volume weighted average price for the shares over a 21-day trading period ending on July 27, 2020. Immediately following the Reverse Stock Split, the CUSIP for the Company’s Common Stock will be 81734P206.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
