bebe stores, inc. (NASDAQ:BEBE) Files An 8-K Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
Item5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws;
Change in Fiscal Year.
On December8, 2016, bebe stores, inc. (the Company) filed
its Fifth Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (the
Articles of Incorporation) with the Secretary of State of
the State of California to effect a 1-for-10 reverse stock split
of its common stock.
As disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K, Item5.07,
Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, filed on
December18, 2015, on December15, 2015, the Companys shareholders,
by an affirmative vote of at least a majority of the shares of
common stock outstanding and entitled to vote on the matters,
approved a proposal authorizing the Companys board of directors
(the Board), in its discretion, to effect a reverse stock
split of the Companys outstanding shares of common stock at any
whole number ratio not less than 1-for-3 and not greater than
1-for-10. The Board has approved the reverse stock split and a
1-for-10 split ratio.
As a result of the reverse stock split, every ten shares of the
Companys pre-reverse split common stock will be converted
automatically into one share of common stock. No fractional
shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split, and
shareholders who otherwise would be entitled to a fractional
share will receive, in lieu thereof, a cash payment equal to the
average closing price of the Companys common stock as quoted on
NASDAQ for the five trading days immediately preceding December8,
2016, multiplied by the number of shares of pre-split common
stock held by the shareholder that would otherwise have been
exchanged for such fractional share. Also, as a result of the
reverse stock split, the number of the authorized shares of the
Companys common stock will be reduced as set forth in the
Articles of Incorporation. The reverse stock split will not alter
the par value of the Companys common stock or modify any voting
rights or other terms of the Companys common stock. Proportional
adjustments will be made to shares of the Companys common stock
issuable upon exercise or conversion of the Companys outstanding
equity incentive awards, and the applicable per share exercise
price of such securities in accordance with their terms.
The Articles of Incorporation are filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this
report and is incorporated by reference herein.
