DigitalBridge Group, Inc. (“DigitalBridge” or the “Company”) (NYSE:DBRG) announced today that it has completed the previously announced reverse stock split of DBRG common stock at a ratio of 1-for-4, with a proportionate reduction in the outstanding shares of its common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”).
The Reverse Stock Split is intended to reinforce the completion of the Company’s successful business transformation, more closely align DigitalBridge’s outstanding share count with companies of similar size and scope, and generate additional administrative cost savings, consistent with management’s ongoing initiatives to simplify and rationalize the Company.
As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, the number of outstanding shares of Class A common stock and Class B common stock of the Company were reduced to approximately 163.9 million shares and 0.2 million shares, respectively. Each stockholder’s percentage ownership in the Company and proportional voting power remains unchanged after the Reverse Stock Split, except for minor changes resulting from the payment of cash for fractional shares and rounding of certain equity-based awards granted under the Company’s equity incentive plan (the “Plan”). Outstanding DBRG equity-based awards and shares or share units under the Plan were proportionately adjusted. The rights and privileges of stockholders are otherwise unaffected by the Reverse Stock Split.
DBRG common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the New York Stock Exchange opens on August 23, 2022 and will continue trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “DBRG”, with a new CUSIP number 25401T 603. American Stock Transfer & Trust Company LLC, the company’s transfer agent, is acting as exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split. DBRG shareholders do not need to take any action in connection with the reverse stock split.
Additional details concerning the reverse stock split are contained in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
