  • The Phoenix Companies, Inc. Announces Reverse Stock Split

    July 9, 2012 by N/A

    HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jun. 28, 2012– ThePhoenix Companies, Inc.(NYSE:PNX) today announced a 1-for-20 reverse stock split ofPhoenixcommon stock.

    “We believe this is the right time for a reverse stock split, which will reduce administrative costs and improve our ability to interact with our shareholders. We also believe the resulting increase in share price will improve the perception of our common stock, which goes hand-in-hand with the substantial progress we have made in our business fundamentals and operating performance,” saidJames D. Wehr, president and chief executive officer.

    Phoenixanticipates the reverse stock split will be effective after the close of all trading onAugust 10, 2012, andPhoenixcommon stock will begin trading on a split adjusted basis on theNew York Stock Exchange(NYSE) at the opening of trading onAugust 13, 2012.

    When the reverse stock split becomes effective, every 20 shares of issued and outstandingPhoenixcommon stock will be automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of common stock. This will reduce the number of outstanding shares ofPhoenixcommon stock from 116.3 million to 5.8 million.Phoenixcommon stock will continue trading on theNYSEunder the trading symbol “PNX” but will trade under a new CUSIP number.

    No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. In connection with the reverse stock split,Phoenixwill purchase all fractional shares that otherwise would have been issued as a result of the transaction. Shareholders who would otherwise hold a fractional share ofPhoenixcommon stock will receive a cash payment in lieu of the fractional share.

    Additional information on the treatment of fractional shares and other effects of the reverse split can be found in Phoenix’s definitive proxy statement filed with theSecurities and Exchange CommissiononApril 3, 2012. Shareholders granted the Board of Directors discretionary authority to effect this reverse stock split at the company’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders onMay 15, 2012.

    Following the reverse stock split,Phoenixexpects to offer an odd lot program that would provide shareholders who hold fewer than 100 shares with a voluntary and limited-time means to sell their shares, purchase enough additional shares to increase their holdings to 100 shares, or make a charitable donation of their shares.
