During the fiscal year, holders of the common stock and exchangeable shares of the Company approved, through a majority shareholder vote, an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation authorizing the Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split of Bionik’s common stock and exchangeable shares at a ratio up to one-to-one hundred and fifty.
On October 29, 2018, the Company effected a reverse stock split and thereafter Bionik’s common stock began trading on the OTCQB market on a one-for-one hundred and fifty (1:150) split-adjusted basis. All owners of record on October 29, 2018 received one issued and outstanding share of Bionik common stock or exchangeable share in exchange for one hundred and fifty issued and outstanding shares of Bionik common stock or Bionik exchangeable stock. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the reverse stock split. All fractional shares created by the one-for-one hundred and fifty reverse split were rounded up to the next whole share. The reverse stock split had no impact on the par value per share of Bionik common stock, which remains at $
0.001. All current and prior period amounts related to shares, share prices and earnings per share, presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the accompanying Notes have been restated to give retrospective presentation for the reverse stock split.
