The adjusted capital value of the company, based on shares outstanding following the reverse split and the share price as of close of market on March 28, 2023 of $1.460, was approximately $4.8 million, a 92.7% discount to independent analyst’s target price for the company’s ordinary shares of $20 per share on a split-adjusted basis.
