TORONTO and NEW YORK, July 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Real Brokerage Inc. ("Real" or the "Company") (TSXV: REAX) (NASDAQ: REAX), a national, technology powered real estate brokerage in the United States, announced it will forward split all of its issued and outstanding common shares ("Common Shares") on the basis of four (4) post-split Common Shares for each one (1) pre-split Common Share (the "Share Split").
Share Split Details
Real's board of directors approved the Share Split to return to Real's share capitalization prior to the 4:1 share consolidation that took place on June 1, 2021 for the sole purpose of facilitating the listing of the Common Shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
After receiving feedback from various stakeholders, Real is of the view that having a larger number of Common Shares (and a corresponding larger number of employee stock options and restricted share awards) outstanding as a result of the Share Split would have a positive impact on the Company's ability to attract, retain and reward real estate agents.
Tamir Poleg, CEO of Real stated "The Board's approval of this stock split underscores a core element of Real's success and growth: a desire for our agents to participate in the equity in the Company. We provide stock incentives for performance milestones and we believe splitting our common shares make these incentives more attractive. We look forward to continued growth, together".
The Share Split is subject to the issuance of a Bulletin by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). Subject to the Bulletin, the Company has set July 19, 2021 as the record date for the Share Split and July 16, 2021 as the effective date for the Share Split.
Assuming the Share Split is completed, the existing 40,179,611 Common Shares will be increased to approximately 160,718,444 Common Shares.
The exercise price and number of Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options, restricted stock units, warrants or other convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the Share Split in accordance with the terms of such securities.
Shareholders of the Company do not need to take any action with respect to the Share Split. The Company's transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services will send registered shareholders a Direct Registration Statement advice (DRS) representing the additional number of shares to be received as a result of the Share Split.
