Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM) (the "Company") today announced that on May 9, 2016 as of the close of business, it will effect a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of its Class A common stock. Each 10 shares of the Company's Class A common stock and equivalents will be converted into 1 shares of Class A common stock.

The reverse stock split will affect all issued and outstanding shares of the Company's Class A common stock, as well as common stock underlying stock options and warrants outstanding immediately prior to the effectiveness of the reverse stock split. The reverse stock split will proportionally reduce the total number of shares outstanding from approximately 78 million to approximately 7.8 million. Concurrent with the reverse stock split, the authorized shares of Class A common stock will be reduced from 210 million to 21 million.

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Any fractional share of Class A common stock that would otherwise have resulted from the reverse stock split will be converted into cash payments equal to such fraction multiplied by the closing price on the Nasdaq Global Market of the Class A common stock on May 9, 2016. American Stock Transfer & Trust Co., the transfer agent for the Class A common stock, will serve as the exchange agent for the reverse stock split. Stockholders holding their shares in book-entry form or through a bank, broker or other nominee do not need to take any action in connection with the reverse stock split, and will see the impact of the reverse stock split automatically reflected in their accounts following the effective date. For those stockholders holding physical stock certificates, American Stock Transfer will send instructions for exchanging those certificates for shares held in book-entry form or for new stock certificates, in either case representing the post-split number of shares.

The Company's trading symbol, CIDM, will not change as a result of the reverse stock split. The Company's Class A common stock will begin trading under the new CUSIP number 172406 209 on May 10, 2016.
