MILPITAS, Calif., Sept. 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LTX-Credence Corporation (Nasdaq:LTXC) today announced that its Board of Directors has determined to proceed with the one-for-three reverse stock split previously approved by its stockholders. LTXC expects to file Restated Articles of Organization on September 30, 2010 in order to effect the reverse stock split, and on a post-split basis, set the number of authorized shares of its common stock at 150,000,000. The Restated Articles of Organization were approved by LTX-Credence's stockholders at the Special Meeting of Stockholders held on July 8, 2010.
Upon the effective time of the Restated Articles of Organization, each outstanding share of LTX-Credence common stock will automatically be changed into one-third of a share of common stock. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Holders of common stock who would otherwise receive a fractional share of common stock pursuant to the reverse stock split will receive cash in lieu of the fractional share. LTX-Credence expects the reverse stock split to become effective for trading purposes at the opening of the market on October 1, 2010.
