Stock Split is a Key Element of Company’s Strategic Initiatives as It Prepares for Next Generation of Its Acquisition Financings
Miami, FL – April 21, 2023 – Globe Newswire – Smart for Life, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMFL) (“Smart for Life” or the “Company”), a high growth global leader in the Health & Wellness sector marketing and manufacturing nutritional foods and supplements worldwide, announced that it will effect a 1-for-50 reverse stock split (“reverse split”) of its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“common stock”), that will become effective on April 24, 2023. Smart for Life’s common stock will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “SMFL” and will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on April 24, 2023. The new CUSIP number for the Common Stock following the reverse split will be 83204U301.
Among other considerations, the reverse split is intended to bring the Company into compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for maintaining the listing of its common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market and to make the bid price more attractive to investors. In addition, the split is part of a larger strategic plan to support future acquisition financings, including multiple accretive acquisitions currently and prospectively in the Company’s pipeline.
“Across the tumultuous conditions in the global markets, it is no secret that public companies of all sizes have seen significant diminution of their market values over the last year,” stated Darren Minton, Smart for Life’s Chief Executive Officer. “As we have previously mentioned since first announcing our plans to regain Nasdaq compliance late last year, this strategic restructuring as part of the Company’s capitalization acknowledges that reality and better positions the Company for our serial accretive acquisitions going forward.”
Mr. Minton concluded, “We want to reaffirm our publicly stated plans of growing to over $100 million in annualized revenues in the next twelve months based on anticipated acquisitions in our pipeline. This is in addition to achieving $300 million in revenues by 2026. We encourage everyone following our company to stay tuned as we enter this next phase of our strategic growth.”
