HONG KONG, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The board of SEII announces that a 1-50 reverse split of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock has been effected. Every fifty issued existing shares has been consolidated into one share, effective from 13 October 2020.
The SEII's board of directors considers that the primary driver behind the share consolidation is that it will result in an upward adjustment to the share price of the company. The board is aware that certain brokerage houses and institutional investors have internal policies and practices that either prohibit them from investing in low-priced shares or tend to discourage individual brokers from recommending low-priced shares to their customers.
The board believes that the higher trading price of the new shares will also enhance the company's corporate image and therefore attract a broader range of institutional and professional investors to invest in the new shares, broadening the shareholder base of the company. This has multiple benefits for the company and its existing shareholders. More financing opportunities may become available for the company if the new shares become an acceptable investment option for institutional investors. This would allow the company to pursue additional profit-generating ventures to support the company's long term development. Greater investment by institutional investors, if the company can attract such investors, is also likely to reduce the volatility of and stabilize the price of shares of the company, as such investors tend to have longer investment horizons.
It is anticipated that a more stable and less volatile trading share price will serve to facilitate trading activities and improve market efficiency by boosting the liquidity of the new shares.
