Borqs Technologies (NASDAQ:BRQS) stock is falling on Tuesday as investors react to a reverse stock split going into effect today.

That reverse stock split has the company’s board of directors approving the consolidation of 12 shares of BRQS stock into a single share. Doing so increases the price of the company’s stock without affecting its market capitalization.

Borqs Technologies stock will continue to trade under the BRQS stock ticker following the reverse split. However, it will switch over to “G1466B145” as its new CUSIP number following the reverse split.

What’s Behind the BRQS Reverse Stock Split?

Investors will note that this reverse stock split comes after a warning from the Nasdaq Exchange last month. The exchange pointed out the low price of BRQS stock and warned that didn’t meet the minimum market value required for continued listing.

According to the Nasdaq, the company’s market value remains below $35 million. It’s possible this reverse stock split is part of its plan to increase its market value. Borqs Technologies has until March 13, 2024, to regain compliance.

BRQS stock is down 7.7% as of Tuesday morning after seeing larger falls earlier today. This comes with some 6,500 shares traded, as compared to its daily average of 87,000 shares.
