SAB de CV.”
Because Fr8Tech did not qualify for a six-month extension to comply with Nasdaq share price requirements, Fr8Tech ordinary shares underwent a 10 to 1 reverse share split to regain Nasdaq compliance with trading post-split beginning as of market open on March 24, 2023. The number of outstanding ordinary shares on April 17, 2023 was 3,277,513. The adjusted capital value of the company, based on ordinary shares outstanding following the reverse split and the share price as of close of market on April 17, 2023 of $2.380, was approximately $7.8 million, a 88.1% discount to independent analyst’s target price for the company’s ordinary shares of $20 per share on a split-adjusted basis. The adjusted capital value of the company based on the closing price on April 17, 2023 of $7.8 million amounts to approximately 30.1% of TTM revenues for the year-ended December 31, 2022 of $25.9 million, and is 21.7% of company guidance of $36 million for total 2023 revenues. Both discount percentages are figures that the company believes to be significant discounts to market comparable shares.
