Gravity Announces 1-for-8 Reverse ADS Split

 

Seoul, South Korea — April 22, 2015 — Gravity Co., Ltd. (NasdaqCM: GRVY)(“Gravity” or “Company”) announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a ratio change of its American Depositary Shares(“ADSs”) to common shares from four ADSs to one common share (4:1) to one ADS to two common shares (1:2), effective as of May 11, 2015. The ratio change will have the same effect as a 1-for-8 reverse split of its ADSs.

 

ADS holders are required on a mandatory basis to surrender their ADRs for cancellation in order to exchange their existing ADSs for the New ADSs. If applicable, any fractional ADSs will be sold by the depositary and paid in cash to the ADS holders.

 

The reverse ADS split will have no effect on its common shares. Although the price of its ADSs is expected to increase proportionally, the Company can give no assurance that this event will result in meeting the minimum bid price requirement of NASDAQ Capital Market.

 

Background

 

As previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 6-K dated June 3, 2014, the Company was notified by NASDAQ, on May 28, 2014, that it no longer satisfied the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Stock Market Rule 5450(a)(1), as the bid price of the Company’s ADS had closed for 30 consecutive business days below US$1.00 per ADS. In accordance with Nasdaq Stock Market Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company was granted a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until November 24, 2014, to regain compliance. Subsequently, the Company disclosed in a Current Report on Form 6-K dated November 25, 2014, that it received a positive determination from the Listing Qualifications department of The NASDAQ Stock Market, granting approval of the Company’s request to transfer its listing to The NASDAQ Capital Market from The NASDAQ Global Market. As a result, the Company was granted its second grace period of 180 calendar days, or until May 26, 2015 to regain compliance with NASDAQ.
