MIAMI, FL / SEPTEMBER 22, 2023 / Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:VINO), a company that includes a growing collection of e-commerce platforms with a concentration on fine wines, luxury real estate, and leather goods and accessories (the “Company” or “Gaucho Holdings”), today announced a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock to become effective at 12:01 a.m. (Eastern Time) on September 25, 2023. The Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the markets open on September 25, 2023 under the existing trading symbol “VINO.”
The reverse stock split is primarily intended to bring the Company into compliance with the minimum bid price requirements for maintaining its listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The new CUSIP number following the reverse stock split will be 36809R404.
As a result of the reverse stock split, every 10 shares of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding or held by the Company as treasury stock will be automatically reclassified into one new share of common stock. The reverse stock split will not modify any rights or preferences of the shares of the Company’s common stock. Proportionate adjustments will be made to the exercise prices and the number of shares underlying the Company’s outstanding equity awards, as applicable, and warrants, as well as to the number of shares issued and issuable under the Company’s equity incentive plans. The common stock issued pursuant to the reverse stock split will remain fully paid and non-assessable. The reverse stock split will not affect the number of authorized shares of common stock or the par value of the common stock. The reverse stock split was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the annual general meeting of stockholders held on August 24, 2023 at a ratio in the range of 1-for-2 and 1-for-10, such ratio to be determined by the Board of Directors and included in a public announcement. On September 8, 2023, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the reverse stock split at the ratio of 1-for-10.
No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split and no cash or other consideration will be paid in connection with any fractional shares. Stockholders who would otherwise would have held a fractional share after giving effect to the reverse stock split will instead own one whole share of the post-reverse stock split common stock.
Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Company (“Continental”), the Company’s transfer agent, will act as the exchange agent for the reverse stock split. Stockholders of record holding certificates representing pre-split shares of the Company’s common stock will receive a letter of transmittal from Continental with instructions on how to surrender certificates representing pre-split shares. Stockholders should not send in their pre-split certificates until they receive a letter of transmittal from Continental. Stockholders with book-entry shares or who hold their shares through a bank, broker or other nominee will not need to take any action. Stockholders of record who held pre-split certificates will receive their post-split shares book-entry and will be receiving a statement from Continental regarding their common stock ownership post-reverse stock split.
