IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Capstone Financial Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CAPP) (“Capstone”), an investment and merchant banking group, today announced a twenty-for-one forward stock split of its issued and outstanding common stock (the “forward split”). Following the forward split, each share of Capstone’s common stock outstanding will represent 20 shares of common stock on a post-split basis.
On the record date of September 23, 2013, Capstone’s common stock will begin trading on a post-split adjusted basis. Capstone Financial Group, Inc.’s ticker symbol of “CAPP” will remain unchanged as a result of the forward split; however, the effectiveness of the forward stock split is subject to approval by FINRA.
“We are pleased to announce the implementation of our forward split which we expect to encourage more liquidity in our stock trading. This puts our company on target to add and maximize shareholder value,” said Darin Pastor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
Shareholders holding common stock will not be required to take any action and each share of common stock outstanding prior to the effective time of the split will thereafter represent the number of shares of common stock, on an adjusted post-split basis, following the effective time of the split. Shares of common stock held in brokerage accounts should also be credited with the split amount without further action. The forward split will increase the number of issued and outstanding shares to 90,200,000. For more information, brokerage customers should contact their brokerage representative.
Pastor and George Schneider, President and Chief Investment Officer, also announced this week that Capstone advised and funded through direct investment the current financial needs of Instant-BioScan (, a Tucson-based manufacturer of real-time microbial systems for water. Additionally, Capstone cemented the exclusive rights to advise and raise $221,000,000 through a bond offering for a large multinational corporation within the health, wellness, and nutritional supplement industry.
