FreeSeas Announces Reverse Split of Common Stock

Athens, Feb. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --        


Athens, Greece, February 6, 2017 -- FreeSeas Inc. (OTCQB: FREEF) ("FreeSeas" or the "Company"), a transporter of dry-bulk cargoes through the ownership and operation of two Handysize vessels and an owner of a controlling stake in a company commercially operating tankers and dry-bulkers, announced today that the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation are being amended to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock at a ratio of one new share for every 5,000 shares currently outstanding.

The Company anticipates that its common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on February 7, 2017. FreeSeas’ common stock will trade under the symbol "FREED" for 20 trading days and then will change back to “FREEF”. The common shares will also trade under a new CUSIP number Y26496235.                     

The reverse stock split will consolidate 5,000 shares of common stock into one share of common stock at a par value of $0.001 per share. The reverse stock split will not affect any shareholder’s ownership percentage of FreeSeas’ common shares, except to the limited extent that the reverse stock split would result in any shareholder owning a fractional share. Fractional shares of common stock will be rounded up to the nearest whole share.

After the reverse stock split takes effect, shareholders holding physical share certificates will receive instructions from American Stock Transfer and Trust Company LLC, the Company's exchange agent, regarding the process for exchanging their shares.
