On January 16, 2019, Aerkomm Inc. (the “Company”) completed a 1-for-5 reverse split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Reverse Split”), which was completed by the filing of a Certificate of Change Pursuant to NRS 78.209 (the “Certificate of Change”) with the Nevada Secretary of State on December 26, 2018.
The Reverse Split was duly approved by the Board of Directors of the Company without stockholder approval, in accordance with the authority conferred by Section 78.207 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. The Certificate of Change also decreased the authorized number of shares of the Company’s common stock from 450,000,000 shares to 90,000,000 shares.
Pursuant to the Reverse Split, holders of the Company’s common stock are deemed to hold one (1) post-split share of the Company’s common stock for every five (5) shares of the Company’s common stock held. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the Reverse Split. Stockholders who entitled to a fractional post-split share received in lieu thereof one (1) whole post-split share.
At the market opening on January 16, 2019, the Company’s common stock began trading on the OTCQX Market on a split-adjusted basis. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade under the symbol “AKOM” (temporary symbol “AKOMD” indicating a reverse stock split has occurred). The new CUSIP number for the Company’s common stock is 00774B 208. Following the effectiveness of the Reverse Split, the Company has 9,351,666 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
