Owlet, Inc. (NYSE: OWLT) (“Owlet” or the “Company”), today announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has approved a 1-for-14 reverse stock split (“Reverse Split”) of its Class A common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (“Common Stock”), that is expected to become effective on July 7, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. EDT. The shares of the Company’s Common Stock are expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on a split-adjusted basis at the market open on July 10, 2023. No change will be made to the trading symbol for the Company’s shares of Common Stock, “OWLT” in connection with the Reverse Split.

The Company expects that the Reverse Split will allow the Company to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum average closing price requirement of the NYSE. The new CUSIP number for the Common Stock following the Reverse Split will be 69120X206.

At the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders held on June 23, 2023, the Company’s stockholders approved the proposal to authorize the Board, in its sole and absolute discretion, to effect the Reverse Split at a ratio to be determined by the Board, ranging from 1-for-10 to 1-for-20 and to reduce the authorized number of shares of Common Stock and the authorized and unissued shares of the Company’s preferred stock. On June 26, 2023, the Board approved the Reverse Split at a ratio of 1-for-14.

The Reverse Split will reduce the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock from approximately 118,078,000 to approximately 8,434,142. The number of authorized shares of Common Stock will be reduced from 1,000,000,000 shares to 107,142,857 shares, which reflects a reduction to 1.5 times the current number of authorized shares of Common Stock, divided by the Reverse Split ratio. The 30,000 shares of Series A convertible preferred stock currently issued and outstanding will not be reduced by the Reverse Split, but the rate at which these shares are convertible into Common Stock will be adjusted in accordance with the Certificate of Designation for the Series A convertible preferred stock. The Reverse Split will also reduce the number of authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock from 99,970,000 shares to 10,711,071 shares, which reflects a reduction to 1.5 times the current number of authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock, divided by the Reverse Split ratio. All other outstanding options, warrants, and other securities entitling their holders to purchase or otherwise receive shares of Common Stock will be adjusted as a result of the Reverse Split, as required by the terms of each security. The number of shares available to be awarded under the Company’s equity incentive plans will also be appropriately adjusted. Following the Reverse Split, the par value of the Common Stock will remain unchanged at $0.0001 par value per share. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Split, and stockholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share will instead receive a cash payment equal to the fraction of a share of Common Stock in lieu of such fractional share.

"While this reverse stock split is primarily driven by technical compliance to the NYSE minimum stock price requirement, the core of the business continues to get healthier. We're optimistic about the progress we're making towards improving margin, channel health and reaching profitability. Following last week's announcement of our first FDA clearance we're excited about the future of this category and the expanded access and adoption that regulatory approvals will give to parents around the world,” states Kurt Workman, Owlet’s CEO and Co-Founder.

Additional information regarding the Reverse Split is available in the Company’s definitive proxy statement originally filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on May 12, 2023.
