MELBOURNE, Fla., Nov. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via IBN – Branded Legacy, Inc (OTC.PK: BLEG), a pioneer in the biotechnology and wellness industries, today announced its strategic decision to buy back and retire 1,000,000 Preferred Class D Shares. This significant move protects against a conversion ratio of 1 Preferred Class D Share to 100 Common Unrestricted shares, marking a pivotal step in enhancing shareholder value and simplifying the company’s share structure by preventing these shares from entering the market.
Overseen by Branded Legacy’s legal and finance teams, this retirement and conversion process is integral to the company’s anti-dilution strategy. The initiative aims to make the company’s stock more accessible and appealing to both existing and potential investors. The conversion is planned to be carried out efficiently, ensuring a smooth and transparent transition for all shareholders.
In conjunction with this significant retirement, Branded Legacy is on track to continue the retirement of an additional 700 million restricted Common shares. This action is a clear demonstration of the company’s commitment to reducing its share count and thereby increasing the intrinsic value of its stock.
Furthermore, Branded Legacy is in the process of restructuring its preferred share classes, consolidating them into three shareholder-friendly categories. This restructuring is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to ensure clear and transparent corporate governance, reflecting its strong commitment to its shareholders.
CEO David Oswald commented, “The buyback and retirement of these Preferred Class D Shares is a strategic move to reinforce our shareholders’ value by preventing dilution. We are committed to enhancing the appeal of our stock and ensuring a solid foundation for our company’s future.”
