NEW YORK, October 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
SPO Global Inc. (SPOM), formerly known as SPO Medical Inc., a leading developer of biosensor and microprocessor technologies for use in portable monitoring devices, announced today that its previously announced corporate name change and 1 for 20 reverse stock split became effective on October 4, 2013, at 11:59 p.m.
Due to the corporate name change and reverse stock split, SPO's common stock will trade under a new CUSIP number, 78468T107, and will temporarily trade under the symbol "SPOMD" for 20 trading days commencing October 7, 2013, after which time the symbol will revert to "SPOM". More information on the corporate name change and reverse stock split is available in the Company's information statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 13, 2013.
The Company changed its corporate name to SPO Global Inc. to better reflect the nature of its products and current business focus.
With respect to the reverse split, every twenty shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock have been converted into one issued and outstanding share of common stock. The par value remains unchanged at $ 0.01 per share, as has the number of shares of common stock authorized, which remains at 100,000,000. The number of shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock has been reduced to approximately 5,000,000. Any fractional shares have been rounded up to the next whole share. In addition, the reverse stock split will effect a proportionate adjustment to the per share exercise price and the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of all outstanding stock options and warrants to purchase or acquire shares of the Company's common stock.
As part of this restructuring, SPO Global will now apply its proprietary technology through several vertical marketing divisions - SPO Wellness, SPO Baby, SPO Security and via its licensee SPO Medical.
