IDW Media Holdings, Inc. (formerly known as CTM Media Holdings, Inc.), announced today completion of a ten-for-one stock split. The split was effective on August 4, 2015. Each share of Class B Common Stock (including shares issued in the recent conversion of Class A Common Stock) and Class C Common Stock, now represents ten shares of the same class. The change has been effected in the records of the Company’s transfer agent.
As part of an integrated effort, including the change of the Company’s name, we expect that the post-split Class B Common Stock will begin trading under the ticker symbol (OTC PINK: IDWM) starting on August 10, 2015.
“We’ve now concluded the first steps of increasing IDW Media Holdings’ exposure to the public markets that we announced in April,” said Ted Adams, IDW Media Holdings’ CEO.
