Dec 16 (Reuters) – Oil and gas producer Halcon Resources Corp on Wednesday announced a one-for-five reverse stock split, effective Jan. 5.
The New York Stock Exchange had told Halcon on Aug. 25 that the company’s stock had fallen foul of its listing requirement that a stock must not trade at less than $1 for 30 consecutive trading days.
Halcon’s shares hit a record low of 31.06 cents on Wednesday. They have fallen 82 percent this year, hurt by a steep drop in oil prices.
The company said on Wednesday that the stock split would not impact any stockholder’s ownership on a percentage basis or their voting power.
