Nxt-ID, Inc. (NXTD), a company providing technology products and services for healthcare applications, has increased 2.58% in the premarket session. Consequently, NXTD stock is changing hands at $0.39 at the time of this writing. The increase has come after the company wrote a letter to shareholders. The company urged them to vote for the reverse stock split. On Wednesday, NXTD stock closed the day at $0.38 following a decline of 3.53%.
NXTD letter to shareholders
NXTD, on Wednesday, sent a letter to its shareholders. The letter was from the company’s chief executive Chia-Lin Simmons about the company’s upcoming Special Meeting of the Company’s shareholders. The company said that it would hold the meeting on October 15, 2015. In the letter, the company asked its shareholders to vote for the reverse split proposal related to the company’s common stock and Series C preferred stock. That was done so that the company could regain compliance with the NASDAQ requirements. As a consequence, the company could continue to be listed on the major stock exchange. The company said that the need to approve each of the reverse stock split proposals is urgent and that without such approval, the company expected that its stock could get delisted from NASDAQ on 198th October. That delisting could adversely affect the ease of trading and value of all the company’s securities, which also include its common stock. The letter to shareholders provides information regarding the two reverse stock split proposals and why they are necessary.
