OAKDALE, Minn., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GlassBridge Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: GLA) (the "Company") today announced that its name change from "Imation Corp." to "GlassBridge Enterprises, Inc." became effective as of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on February 21, 2017 (the "Effective Time").
The Company also effected the previously announced 1:10 reverse split (the "Reverse Stock Split") of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share. Effective as of the Effective Time, every ten (10) shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock or held by the Company in treasury was converted into one (1) share of common stock, without any change in the par value per share. In addition, the number of authorized shares of the Company's common stock was decreased from 100,000,000 to 10,000,000.
The Company's common stock is expected to begin trading on a Reverse Stock Split-adjusted basis on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") at the opening of trading on February 22, 2017. In connection with the Reverse Stock Split and the Name Change, the Company's common stock will also begin being traded under a new NYSE symbol, "GLA," and a new CUSIP number, 377185 103, at such time.
No fractional shares of common stock will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. If, as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, a stockholder would otherwise hold a fractional share, a stockholder will, in lieu of the issuance of such fractional share, be entitled, upon surrender to the exchange agent of certificate(s) representing its pre-split shares or upon conversion of its shares held in book-entry, to receive a cash payment equal to the fraction to which the stockholder would otherwise be entitled, multiplied by $6.66, which is the average closing price per share (as adjusted to give effect to the Reverse Stock Split) on the NYSE on the five (5) consecutive trading days immediately preceding February 17, 2017, without interest.
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. ("Wells Fargo"), the Company's transfer agent, is acting as the exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split, and will provide instructions to stockholders of record regarding the process for exchanging shares. Wells Fargo will be issuing all of the post-Reverse Stock Split shares through their paperless Direct Registration System ("DRS"), also known as "book entry form." Eligible book-entry or other electronic positions representing issued and outstanding shares of the Company's common stock will be automatically adjusted. Stockholders who hold certificated shares will be mailed a letter of transmittal to be completed for the exchange of all of their shares. Those stockholders holding common stock in "street name" will receive instructions from their brokers.
For questions relating to the Reverse Stock Split, stockholders may contact Wells Fargo Shareowner Services by phone at (800) 468-9716. If shares are held by a bank, broker or other nominee, stockholders should contact that institution directly.
