Zhangmen Education Inc. (ZME Stock) Files to Change the conversion ratio of American Depository Shares and Class A ordinary shares (December 2021)
Zhangmen Education Inc. (ZME Stock) announced that it intends to change the ratio of its American depositary shares (“ADSs”) to Class A ordinary shares. Currently, one (1) ADS represents nine (9) Class A ordinary shares. The proposed change would result in one (1) ADS representing seventy-two (72) Class A ordinary shares. This ratio change will have the equivalent effect on Zhangmen’s ADS holders as a one-for-eight reverse ADS split. Zhangmen’s Class A ordinary shares will remain unchanged.
Holders of uncertificated ADSs do not need to take any action to effect the ratio change. This is because the change will be reflected in the ADS depositary’s records. Any fractional ADSs will be sold, and the net revenues will be transferred to the holders who are entitled to them. The effect of the ratio change on the ADS trading price on the NYSE Capital Market is projected to occur on December 23, 2021, at the start of operations (U.S. Eastern Time). The ADS price is projected to rise proportionally as a result of the change in the ADS ratio. However, the Company cannot guarantee that the ADS price after the change will remain proportional.
