Society Pass Incorporated Announces 1-for-15 Reverse Split

NEW YORK, April 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Society Pass Inc. (Nasdaq: SOPA) (“SOPA” or the “Company”), Southeast Asia’s (SEA) next generation, e-commerce ecosystem, today announced that the board approved a proposed 1-for-15 shares reverse split of its common stock (the "Reverse Split"). 

Beginning with the opening of trading on May 1, 2024, the Company's common stock will begin trading on a post-Reverse Split basis on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the same symbol "SOPA", but under a new CUSIP number of 83370P201. The objective of the Reverse Split is to enable the Company to regain compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2) and maintain its listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

Upon the effectiveness of the Reverse Split, every fifteen issued and outstanding shares of common stock with a par value of US$0.0001 each will automatically be consolidated into one issued and outstanding common stock with a par value of US$0.0001 each. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Split. Instead, any fractional shares that would have resulted from the Reverse Split will be rounded up to the next whole number. The Reverse Split affects all shareholders uniformly and will not alter any shareholder's percentage interest in the Company's outstanding common stock, except for adjustments that may result from the treatment of fractional shares. The Reverse Split will also reduce the number of authorized shares by the same ratio as the Reverse Split. The Reverse Split was approved by the Company's board of directors. The Company has filed a certificate of change with the Secretary of State of Nevada.
