SeaStar Medical Announces 25-for-1 Reverse Stock Split

DENVER, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SeaStar Medical Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: ICU), a medical device company developing proprietary solutions to reduce the consequences of hyperinflammation on vital organs, announces the Company’s 25-for-1 reverse stock split, which will become effective at June 7, 2024 at 5:00 PM EDT. The Company’s common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on The Nasdaq Capital Market (Nasdaq) effective with the open of the market on June 10, 2024. SeaStar Medical’s stock will continue to trade under the ticker symbol “ICU.”

Authorization for the reverse stock split was approved by the Company’s stockholders at SeaStar Medical’s 2023 Special Meeting of Stockholders held on September 6, 2023. The objective of the reverse stock split is to increase the market price for the Company’s common stock to, among things, enable the Company to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement under applicable Nasdaq Listing Rules. The Company’s common stock will trade under a new CUSIP number – 81256L203.

As a result of the reverse stock split, each 25 pre-split shares of common stock outstanding will automatically combine and convert to 1 issued and outstanding share of common stock. Stockholders of record who otherwise would be entitled to receive fractional shares will receive one whole share of common stock in lieu of such fractional share. The reverse stock split reduces the number of shares of common stock issuable upon the conversion of the Company’s outstanding shares of preferred stock and the exercise or vesting of its outstanding stock options and warrants in proportion to the ratio of the reverse stock split and causes a proportionate increase in the conversion and exercise prices of such preferred stock, stock options and warrants.

Stockholders of record will receive information regarding their share ownership following the reverse stock split from the Company’s transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Company. Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Company can be reached at 800-509-8856. Stockholders owning shares via a bank, broker or other nominee will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split and will not be required to take further action in connection with the reverse stock split, subject to brokers’ particular processes.

For additional information regarding the reverse stock split, please refer to SeaStar Medical’s Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
