TIANJIN, CHINA-- Oct 9, 2012 - China Auto Logistics Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: CALI), one of China's leading developers of websites for buyers and sellers of imported and domestic automobiles, a top seller in China of imported luxury cars, and a leading provider of auto-related services, today announced that, as previously approved by stockholders at a Special Meeting of Stockholders held on September 4, 2012, it has filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation, as amended, to effect a 1-for-6 reverse stock split of its common stock that will become effective at the end of business today.
As a result of the reverse stock split, every six (6) shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock have been combined into one (1) share of common stock, par value, $0.001 per share. Any fraction of a share of common stock that would otherwise have resulted from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the next whole share. There will be no change to the authorized shares of common stock of the Company as a result of the reverse stock split.
Trading of the Company's common stock on The Nasdaq Global Market ("Nasdaq") will continue, starting tomorrow, October 10, 2012, on a reverse stock split-adjusted basis, under the symbol "CALI." The new CUSIP number for the Company's common stock following the reverse stock split is 16936J 202.
Corporate Stock Transfer, the Company's transfer agent, will act as exchange agent for the reverse stock split. Transmittal letters will be provided to registered holders of the Company's common stock providing appropriate instructions.
The primary objective of the reverse stock split is to maintain the Company's listing on Nasdaq by regaining compliance with the minimum bid price listing requirement. Under this requirement, the Company's common stock must have a closing bid price of at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days prior to November 12, 2012. There can be no assurance that the reverse stock-split will have the desired effect of maintaining the closing bid price of the Company's common stock above $1.00 to meet this requirement.
