SATC Stock

The reverse stock split will cause for SATC to trade as “SATCD” for 20 trading days, and will reduce the outstanding number of shares from approximately 144.2 million to roughly 18.0 million while the Company plans to, concurrent with the reverse stock split, reduce the number of authorized shares to 37.5 million.

This is fantastic news since dilution will be extremely limited allowing Satcon to begin realizing a PPS appreciation after receiving a $2 million grant from the California Energy Commission to develop and demonstrate methods to reduce the effects of renewable power intermittency. The Company was selected for one of California’s largest solar PV power plants, 52.5 megawatts, as well as having recently been named the #1 large-scale solar inverter supplier in North America for the second straight year.
