SWK Holdings Corporation Clarifies Timing of Post Split Trading

DALLAS, Sept. 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (OTCQB:SWKH) ("SWK" or the "Company"), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced a clarification on the timing of the trading of the Company's common stock on a post-split basis following the execution of the previously announced stock splits effective as of 5:00 p.m. on September 15, 2015.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. ("FINRA") had not yet issued an announcement regarding the Company's common stock trading on a post-split basis when the market opened on September 16, 2015; and as a result, trading of the Company's common stock was halted after briefly opening on September 16, 2015, on the OTCQB.

FINRA has reviewed the trading in SWK common stock for September 16, 2015, and has determined to rule all such transactions to be null and void.

FINRA has indicated that trading will resume 8:00:00 AM E.T. on Thursday, September 17, 2015, on a pre-split basis.

The Company's common stock will trade on OTCQB on a post-split basis under CUSIP number 78501P 203 following announcement by FINRA. The Company expects an announcement regarding the timing of the Company's post-split trading by FINRA shortly.
