SWK Holdings Corporation Announces Execution of Stock Split

DALLAS, Sept. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (OTCQB:SWKH) ("SWK" or the "Company"), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced that the previously disclosed 1-for-100 reverse stock split of its common stock, immediately followed by a 10-for-1 forward stock split of its common stock was executed effective as of 5:00 p.m. on September 15, 2015. Beginning with the opening of trading on September 16, 2015, the Company's common stock will trade on OTCQB on a post-split basis under CUSIP number 78501P 203.

At the effective time of the reverse stock split, every 100 shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock were automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of common stock, with no change in par value per share. Holders with less than 100 shares of common stock had their shares cancelled in the reverse stock split and have the right to receive cash in lieu of such shares. The Company then implemented a forward stock split pursuant to which shareholders received 10 shares of common stock for each share of common stock held. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the forward stock split.

Computershare will mail a Letter of Transmittal and other documentation that will need to be completed and returned to Computershare in order to receive your post–split shares and any cash in lieu of a fractional share that you are entitled to receive in exchange for your pre-split shares of common stock.

If you hold any of your shares of common stock in uncertificated or "book-entry" form, you do not need to take any action because your pre-split shares of common stock will be converted automatically into post-split shares.
