SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Systems America, Inc. (OTC: SYAI) ("Systems America" or the "Company"), a premier provider of cloud computing and information technology solutions, announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a 5 for 1 forward split of its common stock. The Company has received confirmation from FINRA regarding the effective date of its proposed five-for-one forward split of its common shares.
At the market opening on August 20, 2012, the Company's common stock will begin trading on a post-split adjusted basis under the new CUSIP number 871877304. The Company's ticker symbol of "SYAI" will remain unchanged as a result of the forward split, although a "D" will be appended ("SYAID") for approximately 20 business days to indicate to investors of the recent reorganization.
As the result of the forward stock split, each shareholder is entitled to exchange their existing shares for five times the amount in new post-split shares, payable upon surrender. The Company expects that shareholders holding common shares at registered brokerage firms will have this forward split transaction processed automatically in their accounts over the next few days. Shareholders holding physical certificates representing their shares are NOT required to submit their certificates for exchange to receive full credit for forward split shares. Physical certificate holders may contact the Company's transfer agent, OTC Stock Transfer Inc., at (801) 272-7272 to facilitate the exchange of their old certificates for post-split shares should they wish to.
"Systems America is entering into a strong growth phase and has identified multiple revenue opportunities ready to launch in the near future," said Adesh Tyagi, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Systems America. "When a company executes a forward stock split from a position of strength, it can have very positive results, including increased investor interest, improved stock liquidity, and reduced administration costs. We believe it is the right time to take this additional step in improving our equity structure, which, together with the successful changes we have already made, should benefit our stockholders." Adesh Tyagi further added "We expect that the implementation of this stock split strategy will place our stock price in a more attractive trading range for a wider-range of long-term investors and have a positive impact on our ability to fuel the future growth of the Company."
