Doing the Splits
In a recently released ‘investor update’, Augmate has shared multiple developments. One of which is their intention of completing a ‘reverse split’.
A ‘reverse split’ refers to the intentional reduction of a company’s shares. The reasons for doing so may vary. Augmate is taking this action to ensure compliance with listing parameters issued by certain secondary markets.
More specifically, OpenFinance Network requires that the minimum value of shares traded on their platform be $1.00 USD each. To adapt to these parameters, Augmate will be re-issuing tokens to current holders at a rate of 1 ‘MATE’ token, for every 100 currently held.
OpenFinance Network has enforced such rules to ensure appropriate trading practices – such as the avoidance of false pricing floors.
With the aforementioned actions being taken to ensure compliance, Augmate hopes to be primed, and ready to go for future platform listings.
Augmate COO, Dana Farbo, stated in the investor update that trading of the ‘MATE' token should commence on OFN by the end of February.
One last tidbit provided by Augmate, in their update, pertained to their token lockup period. Augmate has indicated that upon the reissuance of their MATE tokens, at the new value, they will be immediately unlocked. This will allow for investors to trade their tokens on approved exchanges in a more timely fashion than was first anticipated.
