NextMart, Inc. – 43% Common Stock Cancellation
This past Friday the company had in fact come into the news cycle after it made a major new announcement and it may be a good idea for investors to consider taking a look into it in light of the latest gains. NextMart announced that it had been successful in cancelling a large number of shares of its common stock and returned those to the treasury. It led to a considerable reduction in the number of current outstanding and issued shares in NextMart. Such a move can often be seen as a major positive by investors since it makes the stock a rarer entity and that was possibly the reason behind the strong rally on Friday. Prior to the cancellation operation the company had as many as 415,025,304 issued and outstanding common shares. Following the cancellation, the number of issued and outstanding shares of the common stock dropped to 233,933,024. That was a significant reduction and it remains to be seen if the NextMart stock can continue to hold on to its momentum this week or not.
The Chief Executive Officer of the company Mr Maldonado spoke about the operation as well. He noted that the cancellation of shares led to the reduction of the number of issued and outstanding shares of the NextMart common stock by as much as 43%. He went on to state that it was a ‘huge’ step from the company and also demonstrated the fact that the management at NextMart was committed to its shareholders. It may be a good idea to keep an eye on the NextMart stock today.
