Item 8.01 Other Events.
On September 19, 2023, Skillsoft Corp. (the “Company”) announced that, following stockholder approval at the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on July 20, 2023, the Company’s Board of Directors has approved a 1-for-20 reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”). The Reverse Stock Split will be effective on September 29, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. (EDT).
Beginning with the opening of trading on October 2, 2023, the Company’s Common Stock will trade on the New York Stock Exchange on a split-adjusted basis under new CUSIP number 83066P309 and will continue to trade under the symbol “SKIL”. On the date the split-adjusted Common Stock begins trading, the Company’s public warrants, with a split-adjusted exercise price, will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SKIL.WS”.
As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every 20 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding will be converted into one (1) share of Common Stock. No fractional shares shall be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive fractional shares because they hold a number of shares of Common Stock not evenly divisible by the Reverse Stock Split ratio, will automatically be entitled to receive a cash payment (without interest or deduction) in an amount equal to their respective pro rata share of the proceeds from the sale by the Company’s transfer agent of the aggregate of all fractional shares at the then–prevailing prices on the open market.
The Reverse Stock Split will proportionately reduce the number of authorized shares of Common Stock but will not change the par value of the Common Stock. The Reverse Stock Split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not affect any stockholder’s ownership percentage of the Company’s shares of Common Stock (except to the extent that the Reverse Stock Split would result in some of the stockholders receiving cash in lieu of fractional shares). All outstanding options, warrants, restricted stock units and similar securities entitling their holders to receive or purchase shares of Common Stock will be adjusted as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, as required by the terms of each security.
Stockholders who are holding their shares in electronic form at brokerage firms or with the Company’s transfer agent (Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company) do not have to take any action as the effect of the Reverse Stock Split will automatically be reflected in their accounts.
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure
On September 19, 2023, the Company issued a press release in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1.
