HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / December 16, 2022 / Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE American:CEI) ("Camber" or the "Company") announced today an anticipated effective date of December 21, 2022 for its previously-announced 1-for-50 reverse stock split of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, accompanied by a corresponding decrease in the Company's authorized shares of common stock (the "Reverse Stock Split"). Following effectiveness of the Reverse Stock Split, which the Company expects to occur as of open of the market on December 21, 2022, the number of authorized shares of common stock will be reduced from 1,000,000,000 to 20,000,000.
As previously disclosed, as a result of the Reverse Stock Split every 50 pre-split shares of common stock outstanding will automatically combine into one new share of common stock without any action on the part of the holders, and the number of outstanding common shares will be reduced from approximately 814.4 million shares to approximately 16.3 million shares. Any fractional shares resulting from the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded up to the nearest whole share on a per shareholder basis. Proportionate adjustments will be made to (i) the Company's multiple series of convertible preferred stock, (ii) the Company's multiple convertible promissory notes, (iii) the Company's outstanding options, warrants, convertible debentures and other convertible securities, and (iv) the 2014 Stock Incentive Plan, the Lucas Energy, Inc. 2012 Stock Incentive Plan and the Lucas Energy, Inc. 2010 Long Term Incentive Plan, each as amended and restated to date, and other equity-based plans of the Company. The Reverse Stock Split will not affect the par value of the common stock.
The Board of Directors approved the Reverse Stock Split pursuant to Section 78.207 of the Nevada Revised Statutes ("NRS"). The Board of Directors approved the Reverse Stock Split unilaterally pursuant to Section 78.207 of the NRS, solely to enable the Company to expeditiously meet the low price per share selling price requirements of the NYSE American and to reduce the risk of the Company being automatically delisted from the NYSE American due to the trading prices of its common stock falling below a price which the NYSE American views as abnormally low. The Reverse Stock Split will have no effect on the Company's authorized preferred stock, except to affect, where applicable, the conversion rates and voting rights of such preferred stock. The Company anticipates that the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split will be before market open on December 21, 2022, with the common stock trading on a post-split basis under the Company's existing trading symbol, "CEI," at the market open on December 21, 2022 with a new CUSIP number, 13200M 607. The Reverse Stock Split is expected to increase the market price per share of the Company's common stock, bringing the Company into compliance with the listing requirements of the NYSE American.
