Hong Kong, China, Oct. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Oriental Culture Holding LTD. (“Oriental Culture” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: OCG), a leading online service provider of collectibles and artworks, today announced that at an extraordinary general meeting of the Company held on October 10, 2023, at Unit 909, Level 9, Cyberport 2, 100 Cyberport Road, Hong Kong (the “Meeting”), its shareholders have approved the resolution of a share consolidation (the “Share Consolidation”) of the issued and authorized ordinary shares of the Company at a ratio between one (1)-for-three (3) and one (1)-for-ten (10), accompanied by a corresponding increase in the par value of the ordinary shares, with the exact ratio to be set at a whole number within this range and at such time and date after the passing of the resolution but before October 18, 2023, to be determined by the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) in its discretion.
On October 10, 2023, the Board determined the ratio for Share Consolidation to be one (1)- for five -(5). The Company’s ordinary shares will begin to trade on the NASDAQ Stock Market on the post-consolidation basis under the symbol “OCG” on October 18, 2023. The new CUSIP number for the Company’s ordinary shares post-consolidation is G6796W115.
The Share Consolidation is primarily being effectuated to regain compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2) related to the minimum bid price per share of the Company’s ordinary shares.
The Company’s shareholders will receive one post-consolidation ordinary share for every five pre-consolidation ordinary shares held by them. Immediately after the Share Consolidation, each shareholder’s percentage ownership interest in the Company and proportional voting power will remain unchanged, except for minor changes and adjustments that will result from the treatment of fractional shares. The rights of the holders of ordinary shares will be substantially unaffected by the Share Consolidation. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Share Consolidation, and all such fractional shares will be round up to the nearest whole number of shares following or as a result of the Share Consolidation. Shareholders who are holding their shares in electronic form at brokerage firms do not need to take any action, as the effect of the Share Consolidation will automatically be reflected in their brokerage accounts.
