Greenlane (NASDAQ:GNLN) stock is falling hard on Tuesday as the company’s shares undergo a reverse stock split.

This reverse stock split went into effect after markets closed on Monday. It saw shares of GNLN stock undergo a 1-for-10 reverse stock split. This has it consolidating 10 shares of its Class A shares into a single share of stock.

Greenlane isn’t undergoing this reverse stock split for no reason. The main purpose of the reverse split is to increase the price of GNLN stock. The company is doing so as its shares have been trading at around 30 cents each. That puts it in danger of being delisted due to the Nasdaq’s minimum bid requirement of $1 per share.

Shares of GNLN stock saw a fair amount of activity yesterday as traders sold their shares ahead of the split. That had some 440,000 shares changing hands compared to its daily average of around 11,000 shares. Now it’s seeing massive pre-market trading on Tuesday with some 5.4 million shares on the move.

What This Means for GNLN Stock

While the reverse stock split helps Greenlane avoid delisting, it’s not going over well with investors today. That’s not overly surprising as this is normal from a reverse stock split. Even if it doesn’t affect the stakes an investor holds in a company.

GNLN stock is down 90% as of Tuesday morning.
