Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
Effective December 30, 2015, we effected a fifty for one reverse stock split of our authorized and issued and outstanding shares of common stock. As a result, our authorized common stock has decreased from 1,125,000,000 shares of common stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share, to 22,500,000 shares of common stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share, and the number of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock has decreased from 190,909,767 to 3,818,200.
Our authorized preferred stock was not affected by the reverse stock split and continues to be 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share. In addition, the number of issued and outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock continues to be 20,000,000. However, holders of Series A Preferred Stock will have 0.2 vote per share of Series A Preferred Stock, instead of 10 votes per share of Series A Preferred Stock, as a result of the reverse stock split.
The reverse stock split became effective with OTC Markets Group at the opening for trading on December 30, 2015 under the new stock symbol WTERD. Our new CUSIP number is 01643A 207. Our stock symbol is expected to be changed back to WTER on or around January 29, 2016.
