LAS VEGAS, March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Rare Earth Minerals, Inc., (OTCQB:USMN) Announced today that the Board of Directors has voted to approve a one for fifty, reverse split of its common stock effective March 9, 2015.
The Board determined that it was in the best interests of the Company to reverse split the common stock of the Company on a one (1) for fifty (50) basis because the Company's stock is currently quoted $0.0062 (Bid) and $0.01(Offer) affording little or no liquidity for the shareholders. It is the belief of the Board that the reverse split will cause the Bid and Offer prices to increase, creating the possibility for the stock to trade at more reasonable prices and a more reasonable spread between the Bid and Offer prices.
The Company is currently authorized to issue 300,000,000 shares of Common Stock. As a result of the one (1) for fifty (50) reverse stock split, the authorized shares will also be reversed one (1) for fifty (50). Thereafter, the Company's authorized Common Stock will be 6,000,000. As of December 31, 2014, there were 290,821,878 shares of Common Stock outstanding. As a result of the reverse stock split, there will be approximately 5,816,437 shares of Common Stock outstanding (subject to adjustment due to the effect of rounding fractional shares into whole shares). The reverse stock split will not have any effect on the stated par value of the Common Stock.
