Hooper Holmes, Inc. (NYSE MKT: HH) today announced the effective date for its previously announced 1-for-15 reverse stock split (the "Reverse Split"). The Reverse Split was approved by shareholders at the Company's annual meeting on June 8, 2016.

The Reverse Split will be effective after the close of trading on June 15, 2016 (the "Effective Date"), and the common stock will continue trading on the NYSE MKT under the trading symbol "HH" on a split-adjusted basis on June 16, 2016. The common stock will trade under a new CUSIP number (439104209).

The Reverse Split will reduce the number of outstanding shares of Hooper Holmes' common stock from approximately 128.2 million to approximately 8.5 million. Correspondingly, the trading price of Hooper Holmes is expected to proportionately increase immediately following the Effective Date and, as a result, the Company expects to regain compliance with the NYSE MKT's minimum market price requirement.

Additional information on the Reverse Split can be found in Hooper Holmes' definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 28, 2016, which is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov and on the Company's website at http://www.hooperholmes.com/investors.
