Item 3.03. Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
On August 7, 2009, we filed an amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation establishing a one-for-twenty reverse split of our common stock, effective at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on August 7, 2009. Every twenty shares of (old) common stock which were held as of August 7, 2009, the effective date, were converted into one share of (new) common stock.
No fractional shares of common stock were issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Each holder of common stock who, as a result of the reverse stock split, would otherwise receive a fractional share of common stock will be entitled to receive an equivalent amount of cash in lieu of fractional shares. Such fractional shares will be exchanged at $0.26 per pre-split share.
On August 7, 2009, we issued a Press Release regarding the effectiveness of the reverse stock split. The Press Release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
