Broadwind Energy Announces Reverse Stock Split To Maintain NASDAQ Listing

Broadwind Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: BWEN) announced today that it intends to effect a reverse split of its common stock at a ratio of 1 post-split share for every 10 pre-split shares. The reverse stock split will become effective at 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, August 22, 2012. Broadwind’s common stock will continue to be traded on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "BWEN" and will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on Thursday, August 23, 2012. At an annual meeting of stockholders held on May 4, 2012, Broadwind’s stockholders granted the Board of Directors the discretion to effect a reverse stock split of Broadwind’s common stock through an amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation at a ratio of not less than 1-for-5 and not more than 1-for-10.

At the effective time of the reverse stock split, every ten shares of Broadwind’s issued and outstanding common stock will be converted automatically into one issued and outstanding share of common stock without any change in the par value per share. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of Broadwind’s common stock outstanding from approximately 141 million shares to approximately 14 million shares. Proportional adjustments will be made to the number of shares of Broadwind’s common stock issuable upon exercise or conversion of Broadwind’s outstanding equity awards, as well as the applicable exercise price. Broadwind’s authorized shares of common stock will be reduced from 300 million to 30 million.

Peter C. Duprey, president and chief executive officer, stated, “We are effecting this reverse stock split to raise Broadwind’s common stock price in order to regain compliance with the NASDAQ Capital Market’s $1.00 per share minimum bid continued listing requirement. As our past few quarters’ results demonstrate, the three-prong strategic transformation that we put in place last year is progressing well. We are reducing our manufacturing footprint and our cost base, have shifted our capacity and our marketing focus to non-wind sectors, and are working to improve our financial flexibility. As a result, our Gearing business has decisively turned the corner to increasing profitability, our Services is approaching breakeven, our non-wind Weldments business is growing well, and we have strengthened our competitive position in Towers as supply starts to come into better balance with global demand. Over the next few quarters, we expect the benefits of our strategy to increasingly accrue to our financial results as we complete our transformation and establish sustainable profitable growth.”
