NEW YORK, April 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Voltari Corporation (Nasdaq:VLTC) ("Voltari") today announced the completion of a reverse stock split of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock at a reverse split ratio of one-for-ten (the "Reverse Stock Split"). On April 23, 2013, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware a certificate of amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the "Certificate of Amendment") to effect the Reverse Stock Split. The Certificate of Amendment became effective at 4:15 p.m. on April 23, 2013, at which time every ten shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock were automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of the Company's common stock, without any change in the par value per share. No fractional shares are to be issued. The Company will directly pay each stockholder who would otherwise have been entitled to a fraction of a share an amount in cash equal to the closing sale price of its common stock, as quoted on the NASDAQ Capital Market ("NASDAQ") on April 23, 2013, multiplied by the fractional share amount.
Trading of the Company's common stock will continue on NASDAQ on a reverse stock split-adjusted basis. The new CUSIP number for the Company's common stock following the Reverse Stock Split is 92870X309.
On April 9, 2013, the Company's stockholders voted to approve the Certificate of Amendment, to be implemented if the Company's board of directors (the "Board") determined that the Reverse Stock Split was appropriate in order to regain compliance with the listing requirements of NASDAQ. On April 15, 2013, the Board determined that the Reverse Stock Split was appropriate and authorized the filing of the Certificate of Amendment.About Voltari Voltari empowers mobile operators, brands and advertising agencies to maximize the reach and economic potential of the mobile ecosystem through the delivery of relevance-driven merchandising, marketing and advertising solutions.
