RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., March 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cesca Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:KOOL), an autologous cell-based regenerative medicine company, today announced stockholder approval of a reverse split of Cesca Therapeutics Inc Common Stock at the annual meeting of stockholders.

With stockholder approval, the Cesca Therapeutics Inc. Board of Directors has authorized a 1-for-20 reverse stock split of the Company’s Common Stock. The Company expects that the reverse stock split will become effective as of 5:00 p.m. Pacific time on March 4, 2016 and expects that the reverse stock split will be effective for trading purposes upon the commencement of trading on March 7, 2016, at which point the Company’s Common Stock will begin trading on a split adjusted basis on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company also expects that its shares will continue to trade under the symbol “KOOL” with a “D” included as a suffix to the symbol for 20 trading days to signify that the reverse split has occurred.

No fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. A holder of the old Common Stock who would have otherwise been entitled to a fractional share of the new Common Stock will be entitled to receive one whole share of new Common Stock for the fractional share interest. Proportional adjustments will be made to Cesca Therapeutics Inc.’s incentive plan reserve and to the Company’s outstanding stock options, restricted stock unit awards and warrants as well. After the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, stockholders will receive information from Computershare, the Company’s transfer agent, regarding the process for exchanging their shares of Common Stock.

The Company’s Board of Directors implemented the reverse stock split with the objective of regaining compliance with the minimum bid price listing maintenance requirements of The Nasdaq Capital Market. The reverse split also will have the effect of increasing the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance by the Company.
