TALLAHASSEE, FL, August 13, 2013 - eLayaway, Inc. (OTCQB: ELAYD) (OTCBB: ELAYD) (“eLayaway” or the "Company”), announced today that FINRA has approved the Company’s reverse stock split, which shall be effective as of August 13, 2013. The ratio of the reverse stock split is 1-for-200 shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock. Accordingly, each 200 shares of common stock and equivalents will be converted into one share of common stock. Trading is expected to begin on a split-adjusted basis on August 13, 2013.
“We believe that the reverse stock split will broaden the appeal of our stock to investors and open the door for us to pursue merger/acquisition opportunities,” said Sergio Pinon, CEO of eLayaway. “We will continue to execute on our current business plan towards expanding market reach and reaching profitability.”
As a result of the reverse stock split, the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock will be reduced from approximately 4.2 billion to approximately 21 million. ELAY common stock will continue to trade on the OTCQB under the symbol “ELAY” but under a new CUSIP Number 284169208. For the first 20 business-days post-reverse split, the stock will be traded under the symbol “ELAYD.”
