Rosetta Announces One-for-Four Reverse Stock Split

Premium

Rosetta Genomics this week announced the effectiveness of a one-for-four reverse stock split, which is intended to boost the per-share trading price of the company's ordinary shares to meet the $1 minimum bid price requirement of the Nasdaq Capital Market.

Earlier this year, Rosetta said that it had regained compliance with the exchange's $2.5 million minimum stockholders' equity requirement, but that it still needed to comply with the minimum bid requirement (GSN 3/10/2011).

The company had until Aug. 8 to do so.
