VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 16, 2019 / Chemesis International Inc. (CSE:CSI)(OTC:CADMF)(FRA:CWAA) (the "Company" or "Chemesis"), announces that it will complete a consolidation ("Consolidation") of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for each ten (10) pre-Consolidation common shares. Any fraction of a common share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. As a result of the Consolidation, the outstanding common shares of the Company will be reduced to 11,498,813.
The common shares will begin trading on a consolidated basis and with a new CUSIP number on December 20, 2019.
The Company's name and trading symbol will not change.
Letter of transmittals will be mailed to registered Shareholders and registered Shareholders will be required to deposit their share certificate(s), together with the duly completed letter of transmittal, with Odyssey Trust Company, the Company's registrar and transfer agent. Non-registered Shareholders holding common shares through an intermediary (a securities broker, dealer, bank or financial institution) should be aware that the intermediary may have different procedures for processing the Consolidation than those that will be put in place by the Company for registered Shareholders. If Shareholders hold their common shares through intermediaries and have questions in this regard, they are encouraged to contact their intermediaries.
Outstanding stock options and share purchase warrants will also be adjusted by the Consolidation ratio and the respective exercise prices of outstanding options and share purchase warrants will be adjusted accordingly.
The decision to effect the Consolidation was taken by the Board of Directors of the Company after carefully considering a number of factors, including the significant decline in the Company's share price over the past several months, the significant decline in the market values of many other companies operating in the cannabis sector, and the related challenges companies in the sector are facing in completing financings, particularly equity financings. The Company believes that effecting the Consolidation will be beneficial to the Company in that it is expected to, among other things, provide the Company with greater flexibility in attracting potential financing.
