MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FITT Highway Products, Inc. (OTCQB:FHWY) (OTCQB:FHWYD) (the "Company") has completed a one-for-sixty (1:60) reverse stock split as described in a schedule 14C previously filed with the SEC. The Company has 1,553,970 shares of common stock and 105,000 shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding after the reverse stock split while maintaining the number of authorized shares at 150,000,000 common shares and 20,000,000 preferred shares.
Management believes the reverse stock split was necessary to increase the market price and liquidity of the Company's common stock and to expand the appeal of the common stock to a broader range of institutional and other investors. Numerous brokerage houses and institutional investors have internal policies and practices that either prohibit them from investing in low-priced stocks or tend to discourage individual brokers from recommending low-priced stocks to their customers.
