Today, investors in Staffing 360 Solutions (NASDAQ:STAF) and STAF stock are seeing gains of more than 30% at the time of writing. Indeed, these gains come at a time of relative volatility for this stock. However, it appears recent moves the company has made have created more stability for shareholders.
A recently announced 6-for-1 reverse stock split went into effect yesterday. Accordingly, shares of STAF stock now trade at just under $5 per share, relative to previous levels below $1 per share. This decision was made as part of the company’s intention to maintain listing requirements with the Nasdaq.
While reverse stock splits are generally viewed as a negative, sometimes investors see them positively. As the company’s CEO recently commented, “We are effecting this reverse stock split to raise Staffing 360’s common stock price in order to regain compliance with the NASDAQ Capital Market’s $1.00 per share minimum bid continued listing requirement. We believe the trading of our shares on a national market increases our visibility in the marketplace, improves liquidity, broadens and diversifies our shareholder base, and ultimately enhances long-term shareholder value.”
Indeed, it appears the market is taking this view today.
