Eargo Effects 1-for-20 Reverse Stock Split

Jan 17, 2023

January 17, 2023 16:01 ET San Jose, California, UNITED STATES SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eargo, Inc. (“Eargo” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EAR), a medical device company on a mission to improve the quality of life for people with hearing loss, today announced that it has filed a Certificate of Amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to effect the previously announced 1-for-20 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”). The Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) at market open on January 18, 2023. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on Nasdaq under the trading symbol “EAR”, but will trade under the following new CUSIP number: 270087208. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every 20 shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of the effective time of the Amendment will be automatically reclassified into one share of common stock. The Reverse Stock Split affects all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder’s percentage interest in the Company’s common stock, except to the extent that the Reverse Stock Split results in some stockholders owning a fractional share. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders of record who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share are entitled to a cash payment in lieu of such fractional share. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, proportionate adjustments were made to the per share exercise price and the number of shares issuable upon the exercise or vesting of all outstanding stock options and restricted stock unit awards, which will result in a proportional decrease in the number of shares of the Company’s common stock reserved for issuance upon exercise or vesting of such stock options and restricted stock unit awards, and, in the case of stock options, a proportional increase in the exercise price of all such stock options. In addition, the number of shares reserved for issuance under the Company’s equity plans immediately prior to the effective time of the Amendment will be reduced proportionately. The par value of the common stock will remain unchanged at $0.0001 per share after the Reverse Stock Split, and the number of authorized shares of common stock will remain at 450 million shares.
