RGS Energy 1-for-20 Reverse Stock Split Effective Today

LOUISVILLE, Colo., May 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (Nasdaq:RGSE), one of the nation's leading rooftop installers of solar equipment, announced that the 1-for-20 reverse split of its Class A common stock will be effective today at the open of the U.S. markets.

Shares of RGS Energy Class A common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis today on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the same symbol, RGSE. However, it will receive a new CUSIP number: 75601N203.

The effect of the reverse stock split will be to combine each 20 shares of outstanding common stock into one new share, with no change in par value per share, and to reduce the number of shares outstanding from approximately 96 million to 4.8 million.

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse split. Shareholders who would otherwise hold a fractional share of Real Goods Class A common stock will have their shares rounded up to the nearest whole share.

Holders of shares of Real Goods Class A common stock held in book-entry form or through a bank, broker or other nominee do not need to take any action in connection with the reverse split, and will see the result of the reverse split automatically reflected in their accounts. Beneficial holders may contact their bank, broker or nominee for more information.

For those few shareholders who hold physical stock certificates, the company's transfer agent, Computershare, Inc., will send instructions for exchanging those certificates for new certificates that represent the post-split number of shares. Computershare can be contacted at (855) 396-2084.
