Item 5.03
Amendment to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On September 25, 2023, a.k.a. Brands Holding Corp. (the “Company”) filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Certificate of Amendment”) to affect a one-for-12 reverse stock split (the “Reverse Split”) of the shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”). The Certificate of Amendment will not decrease the number of authorized shares of Common Stock. No fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued as a result of the Reverse Split. Instead, in lieu of any fractional shares to which a stockholder of record would otherwise be entitled as a result of the Reverse Split, we will pay cash (without interest) equal to such fraction multiplied by the average of the closing sales prices of the Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) during regular trading hours for the five consecutive trading days immediately preceding the effective date of the Reverse Split (with such average closing sales prices being adjusted to give effect to the Reverse Split).The number of any outstanding awards, the exercise price per share of outstanding stock options and other terms of outstanding awards issued are automatically adjusted to reflect the effects of the Reverse Split. The Reverse Split impacts all holders of the Common Stock proportionally and does not impact any stockholder’s percentage ownership of Common Stock (except to the extent the Reverse Split results in any stockholder owning fractional shares).
The Reverse Split will become effective at 5:01 PM Eastern Time on September 29, 2023, after the close of trading on the NYSE. The Common Stock will begin trading on a Reverse Split-adjusted basis on the NYSE when the market opens on October 2, 2023. The trading symbol for the Common Stock will remain “AKA.” The Common Stock was assigned a new CUSIP number (00152K200) following the Reverse Split.
The foregoing description of the Certificate of Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Certificate of Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 7.01
Regulation FD Disclosure.
On September 29, 2023, the Company issued a press release announcing the effectiveness of the Reverse Split. The press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is hereby incorporated herein by reference.
The information furnished with this report under this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any other filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
