PALO ALTO, California,
Dec. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --
AeroCentury Corp. ("AeroCentury" or the "Company") (NYSE American:
ACY), today announced that it plans to file a Certificate of
Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the
"Certificate of Amendment") to implement a 5-for-1 forward stock
split of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the
"Stock Split"). Each shareholder of record as of December 30, 2021, the record date, will receive
four (4) additional shares of common stock for each share held as
of the record date. No fractional shares of common stock will be
issued in connection with the Stock Split. Instead, all shares will
be rounded up to the next whole share. The payment date for the
Stock Split will be January 7, 2022
and the Company's common stock is expected to begin trading on a
split-adjusted basis when the market opens on January 10, 2022.
The Company currently has a total of 4,416,811 shares of common
stock issued and outstanding. Following the proposed Stock Split,
the Company will have a total of 22,084,055 shares of common stock
issued and outstanding. The number of authorized shares of all
classes of stock of the Company will not be reduced as a result of
the Stock Split and the Stock Split will not reduce the number of
outstanding shares of the Company's preferred stock. The par value
of the common stock will also not be affected by the Stock Split.
Each stockholder of the Company will hold the same percentage of
common stock outstanding immediately following the Stock Split as
such stockholder held immediately prior to the Stock Split.
The Company anticipates that the Stock Split will increase
liquidity in the trading of the Company's common stock and will
make its shares more accessible to investors.
The Stock Split was approved by the Company's Board of Directors
on November 22, 2021, and approved by
the written consent by the Company's stockholders representing
approximately 65.0% of the Company's voting stock (the "Consenting
Stockholders") on November 30, 2021.
To implement the Stock Split, the Board of Directors and Consenting
Stockholders further approved an increase in the number of
authorized shares of common stock of the Company from 13,000,000 to
40,000,000, which will also be effected by the filing of the
Certificate of Amendment. No other stockholder approval is required
The Company's CUSIP number and trading symbol will remain the
same after effecting the proposed Stock Split.
Stockholders of AeroCentury who hold certificated shares will
not be required to exchange their existing stock certificates.
Stockholders who hold their shares in book-entry form with our
transfer agent will not be required to take any action.
