This excerpt taken from the MBHI DEF 14A filed Dec 3, 2009.
We do not currently intend to issue fractional shares in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Therefore, we do not expect to issue certificates representing fractional shares. Stockholders of record who would otherwise hold fractional shares because the number of shares of common stock they hold before the Reverse Stock Split is not evenly divisible by the split ratio ultimately determined by the board of directors will be entitled to receive cash (without interest and subject to applicable withholding taxes) in lieu of such fractional shares from our agent. Our agent will aggregate all fractional shares following the Reverse Stock Split and sell them into the market. The total amount of cash that will be paid to holders of fractional shares following the Reverse Stock Split will be an amount equal to the net proceeds (after customary brokerage commissions and other expenses) attributable to such sale. Holders of fractional shares as a result of the Reverse Stock Split will be paid such proceeds on a pro rata basis, depending on the fractional amount of shares that they owned.
If a stockholder who holds shares in certificated form is entitled to a payment in lieu of any fractional share interest, the stockholder will receive a check as soon as practicable after the Effective Time and after the stockholder has submitted an executed transmittal letter and surrendered all Old Certificates, as described above in Holders of Certificated Shares of Common Stock. If a stockholder holds shares of our common stock with a bank, broker, custodian or other nominee, those stockholders should contact their bank, broker, custodian or other nominee for information on the treatment and processing of fractional shares by their bank, broker, custodian or other nominee. By signing and cashing the check, stockholders will warrant that they owned the shares of common stock for which they received a cash payment. The cash payment is subject to applicable federal, state and foreign income tax and state abandoned property laws. Stockholders will not be entitled to receive interest for the period of time between the Effective Time and the date payment is received.
