CLEVELAND, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DATATRAK International, Inc. (OTCQX: DTRK), a leader in developing cloud-based, unified eClinical® technologies and delivering related services for the clinical trials industry, today announced that its 1-for-12 reverse stock split of DATATRAK Common Shares no par value became effective following market close on Monday, June 3, 2013, and began trading on a split-adjusted basis on the OTCQX Markets when the exchange opened on Tuesday June 4, 2013.
DATATRAK effected the reverse stock split by filing a Certificate of Amendment to its Sixth Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation with the Ohio Secretary of State effective June 3, 2013. As previously disclosed, shareholders granted the Board of Directors discretionary authority to effect this reverse stock split at the Company's Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 14, 2013.
At the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, every 12 Common Shares of issued and outstanding were automatically combined into one issued and outstanding DATATRAK Common Share. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Instead, shareholders who would have otherwise received a fractional share will receive a cash payment in lieu of the fractional share based on the average of the closing price of the Common Shares as listed on the OTCQX Market for the five trading days immediately preceding the filing of the Certificate of Amendment with the Ohio Secretary of State.
Additional information on the treatment of fractional shares and other effects of the reverse stock split can be found in DATATRAK's definitive proxy statement filed with the OTC Markets on April 8, 2013.
