TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Greenbrook TMS Inc. (TSX: GTMS) (“Greenbrook” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, in conjunction with its application to list its common shares (the “Common Shares”) on The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”), the Company has completed the consolidation of its issued and outstanding Common Shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every five (5) pre-consolidation Common Shares (the “Share Consolidation”).
The Company today filed articles of amendment which implemented the Share Consolidation and the Company anticipates that its Common Shares will begin trading on a post-consolidation basis on the Toronto Stock exchange (“TSX”) at the market open on February 4, 2021 under its current trading symbol “GTMS”, and under new post-consolidation CUSIP and ISIN numbers of 393704309 and CA3937043097, respectively.
The Share Consolidation will result in the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares being reduced from approximately 67.5 million to approximately 13.5 million, on a non-diluted basis. As previously announced, no fractional Common Shares will be issued as a result of the Share Consolidation. Any fractional interest in Common Shares that would otherwise result from the Share Consolidation will be rounded up to the next whole Common Share, if the fractional interest is equal to or greater than one-half of a Common Share, and rounded down to the next whole Common Share if the fractional interest is less than one-half of a Common Share. The exercise price and number of Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options, warrants or other convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the Share Consolidation in accordance with the terms of such securities.
Registered shareholders have received letters of transmittal with respect to the Share Consolidation, which were mailed with the Company’s Management Information Circular on or about December 15, 2020. The Share Consolidation is now effective and registered shareholders should surrender their existing share certificates (representing pre-consolidation Common Shares) for replacement share certificates (representing post-consolidation Common Shares). Until surrendered, each existing share certificate will be deemed, for all purposes, to represent the number of Common Shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the Share Consolidation.
Registered shareholders may obtain copies of the letter of transmittal by contacting Greenbrook’s transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc., or under Greenbrook’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Shareholders who hold their Common Shares through their broker or other intermediary and do not have actual share certificates or DRS Advices registered in their name will not be required to complete and return a letter of transmittal. Any pre-consolidation Common Shares owned by such shareholders will automatically be adjusted as a result of the Share Consolidation to reflect the applicable number of post-consolidation Common Shares owned and no further action is required to be taken by such shareholders.
Greenbrook has applied to list the Common Shares on NASDAQ under the symbol “GBNH.” The Company is currently targeting to complete the proposed listing on NASDAQ by the end of February 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter, subject to satisfaction of all necessary listing requirements and completion of review by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
