OceanFreight Undergoes Reverse Stock Split

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

OceanFreight Inc. has announced that its Board of Directors has determined to effect a 1-for-20 reverse stock split of the Company’s Class A common stock. The company’s shareholders approved the reverse stock split and granted the Board the authority to determine the exact split ratio and proceed with the reverse stock split at the 2011 annual general meeting of shareholders held on June 15, 2011.

The reverse stock split will take effect today, and the Company’s common stock will begin trading on a splitadjusted basis on the NASDAQ Global Market. The Company’s shares will trade for 20 trading days under the symbol “OCNFD” to indicate that the reverse stock split has occurred. Thereafter, the Company’s symbol will revert to its original symbol “OCNF.”

When the reverse stock split becomes effective, every 20 shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of common stock. This will reduce the number of outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock from 118,923,797 to approximately 5,946,182.

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse split. Shareholders who would otherwise hold a fractional share of the Company’s common stock will receive a cash payment in lieu of such fractional share. Shareholders will receive instructions from the Company’s exchange agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, as to how to exchange existing share certificates for new certificates representing the post-reverse split shares.
