ROCHESTER, Mich., May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimizeRx Corp. (OTCQB:OPRX), one of the nation’s leading providers of digital health messaging for the pharmaceutical industry, will effect a 1-for-3 reverse split of its common stock effective prior to the opening of the market today, May 14, 2018.

The stock will begin trading on a post-split basis under the symbol “OPRXD.” After 20 business days, the stock will return to trading under the symbol “OPRX.”

“As we announced in our first quarter 2018 results press release, we expect this reverse split to allow our stock price to meet the listing requirements for The Nasdaq Capital Market,” stated OptimizeRx CEO, William Febbo. “We believe a Nasdaq listing will help broaden our shareholder base by increasing our appeal to retail and institutional investors. We also expect it to provide our investors with greater liquidity and ultimately enhance shareholder value.”

As a result of the split, every three shares of issued and outstanding common stock will be exchanged for one share of common stock. Each stockholder’s percentage ownership interest in OptimizeRx and proportional voting power will remain unchanged, and the rights and privileges as the holders of the common stock will be unaffected.

The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of issued and outstanding common stock from 34,636,811 pre-split to approximately 11,546,000 post-split. Proportional adjustments will be made to any outstanding warrants or options.

Before the listing of the common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market can occur, Nasdaq will need to approve the company’s application for listing and there can be no assurance the application will be approved.
