Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.


On April 25, 2019 Precipio Inc (the “Company”) filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) with the Secretary of State of Delaware, pursuant to which the Company effected a 1-for-15 reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of its issued and outstanding common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”).The Reverse Stock Split is to become effective as of 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on April 26, 2019.


As previously reported, on December 20, 2018, the Company held a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”), at which the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of the Common Stock at a ratio of not less than 1-for-2 and not greater than 1-for-30, to be determined by the Board of Directors (the “Board”) and without reducing the authorized number of shares of Common Stock. The Reverse Stock Split is intended to bring the Company into compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing, as required by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).


As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every fifteen shares of issued and outstanding Common Stock will be automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of Common Stock, without any change in the par value per share. The Reverse Stock Split will reduce the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding from approximately 83.7 million to 5.5 million. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Any fractional shares that would have resulted will be settled in cash equal to the product of (i) the closing sales price of the Common Stock as reported on The Nasdaq Capital Market as of April 26, 2019, multiplied by (ii) the number of shares of Common Stock held by the stockholder immediately prior to April 26, 2019 that would otherwise have been exchanged for such fractional shares.


Stockholders holding certificated shares will receive information from Equiniti Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent, regarding the process for exchanging their stock certificates. Stockholders who hold their shares in book-entry form or in “street name” (through a broker, bank or other holder of record) will not be required to take any action.


The Common Stock is anticipated to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the NASDAQ Capital Market at the market open on April 29, 2019.  The trading symbol for the Common Stock will remain “PRPO.” Following the reverse stock split, the CUSIP for the Company’s Common Stock will be 74019L530.  The Reverse Stock Split will also affect the Company’s outstanding stock options, warrants and other exercisable or convertible instruments and will result in the shares underlying such instruments being reduced and the exercise price being increased proportionately to the Reverse Stock Split ratio.


The description of the Certificate of Amendment and the Reverse Stock Split is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Certificate of Amendment, 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 April 26, 2019, the Company issued a press release announcing the Reverse Stock Split. The full text of the Company’s press release issued in connection with the foregoing matter is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.


The information in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed subject to the requirements of amended Item 10 of Regulation S-K, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing. The furnishing of this information hereby shall not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any such information
