Revelation Biosciences Inc. Announces 1-for-35 Reverse Stock Split effective February 1, 2023 and Results of Special Meeting of Stockholders

Revelation Biosciences Inc. Announces 1-for-35 Reverse Stock Split effective February 1, 2023 and Results of Special Meeting of Stockholders

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Revelation Biosciences Inc. (NASDAQ: REVB) (the “Company” or “Revelation”) announced today that, on February 1, 2023, the Company will implement a 1-for-35 reverse split of its common stock following approval at its Special Meeting of Stockholders held on January 30, 2023. The reverse stock split will be effective as of the morning of February 1, 2023, and the Company’s common stock will trade on a post-split basis at the beginning of trading on the same date under the existing trading symbol “REVB.” The CUSIP number for the common stock following the reverse stock split will be 76135L 309. At the meeting, the stockholders also approved an increase in the authorized common stock to 500,000,000 shares and ratified the appointment of Baker Tilly US, LLP as independent public accountants to the Company.

The reverse stock split is intended to increase the market price per share of the Company’s common stock to regain compliance with the minimum bid continued listing requirement of The Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company intends to continue to pursue additional actions to satisfy the exchange’s minimum stockholders’ equity requirement. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of the Company’s common stock currently outstanding to approximately 672,460 shares. Proportionate adjustments will be made to the conversion and exercise prices of the company’s warrants, restricted stock unit awards, stock options and to the number of shares issued and issuable under the Company’s equity incentive plans.

Information for Stockholders

Upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, each thirty-five shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined and converted into one issued and outstanding share of common stock. The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder’s relative interest in the Company’s equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split would have resulted in a stockholder owning a fractional share. Holders of common stock otherwise entitled to a fractional share as a result of the reverse stock split will automatically be entitled to receive an additional fraction of a share of common stock to round up to the next whole share. The reverse stock split will not change the par value of the common stock or modify the rights or preferences of the common stock. The Company’s transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Co., will maintain the book-entry records for the Company’s common stock. Registered stockholders holding pre-split shares of the Company’s common stock electronically in book-entry form are not required to take any action to receive post-split shares. Stockholders owning shares via a broker, bank, trust or other nominee will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split, subject to such broker’s particular processes, and will not be required to take any action in connect with the reverse stock split. Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Co. can be reached at (212) 509-4000 or (800) 509-5586.

“CDOs are increasingly more focused on enabling business objectives rather than purely technical ones,” said Jitesh Ghai, Chief Product Officer, Informatica. “Our survey findings align with Informatica customers’ desire for data management capabilities and a well-planned strategy linked to clear business outcomes. By driving organizational alignment on that strategy and making the appropriate data management investments to support it, they will differentiate their organizations, drive clear business outcomes and enable success in 2023 and beyond.”

Key Findings from the Study

  • Despite macroeconomic factors, organizations are increasing their investment in data management.

    • 68% of data executives predict increased data management investment in 2023.
  • Data fragmentation and lack of cooperation across the business remain an issue.

    • 55% of data executives reported having more than 1,000 sources of data in their organization.
    • 50% will use five or more tools to support data management priorities in 2023
  • Improving data quality and data governance are top priorities globally.

    • 52% of data executives cited improved governance over their data and processes as a top data strategy priority for 2023.
    • 42% of data executives plan to invest in data quality and master data management capabilities, highly sought-after data management capabilities.
  • Strategy alignment is critical; alignment equals investment and success.

    • 73% of data leaders with strongly aligned business and data strategies predict increased investments.
    • 76% of data executives that reported being very or completely aligned on their data and business strategy also had complete control of their budget.

As data leaders bring strategies and tools together to achieve their business priorities, developing metrics and measurements for business outcomes is critical. Taken together, these findings emphasize data management, control, and unification in 2023, pointing to an increasing focus on data leadership driving new data strategies and measurable business outcomes.
