XI'AN, China, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Kingtone Wirelessinfo Solution Holding Ltd (NASDAQ: KONE) ("Kingtone", or the "Company"), a China-based developer and provider of mobile enterprise solutions, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a combination, or reverse split of the ordinary shares currently issued by the Company at par value of $0.001 per share such that the Company shall issue one (1) ordinary share (each, "New Share," collectively "New Shares") for every ten (10) ordinary shares held by its members ("Old Shares") (the "Reverse Split").
The Reverse Split is expected to be effective November 6, 2012. The par value of each New Share will be $0.01, equal to the aggregate of the par value of ten Old Shares combined. The ratio between each American Depositary Share ("ADS") and its underlying ordinary share post-Reverse Split remains the same, namely, one ADR remains to represent one New Share.
The Company's ADSs will be trading under the new CUSIP number 496880105 upon the effectiveness of the Reverse Split. No change will be made to the trading symbol except a "D" will be added on the ticker symbol once the Reverse Split is effective and will be removed 30 days thereafter.
As a result of the Reverse Split, the price of the ADS is expected to automatically increase proportionally. Although the purpose of this Reverse Spit is to maintain the continued listing of the ADSs on NASDAQ, the Company can give no assurance that this goal will be achieved.
