Dolphin Entertainment Announces 1-for-5 Reverse Stock Split

NEW YORK, NY and LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 25, 2020 / Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLPN), a leading independent entertainment marketing and premium content production company, today announced that the company will effect a 1-for-5 reverse split of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The reverse stock split will become effective November 27, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. EDT. Shares of the company's common stock will trade on a split-adjusted basis on The NASDAQ Capital Market, as of the opening of trading on Friday, November 27, 2020. The new CUSIP number for the Company's common stock will be 25686H 209.

The reverse stock split is being affected as part of the company's plan to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price continued listing requirement of The NASDAQ Capital Market.

When the reverse stock split becomes effective, every five shares of Dolphin Entertainment's common stock will be automatically combined into one new share of common stock. No fractional shares will be issued, and no cash or other consideration will be paid. Instead, the company will issue one whole share of the post-split common stock to any stockholder of record who otherwise would have received a fractional share as a result of the reverse stock split.

The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of outstanding common stock from approximately 32.8 million shares to approximately 6.6 million shares.
