MaxCyte to consolidate its restricted and unrestricted shares
Cell engineering technology company MaxCyte announced the consolidation of the two lines of its common stock into a single unrestricted line of common stock on Monday.
The Nasdaq and AIM-traded firm said the consolidation would be affected by the transfer of all stock comprising the Regulation S restricted trading line, ticker ‘MXCN’. to the unrestricted common stock trading line, ticker ‘MXCT’.

Currently, MaxCyte common stock is held as unrestricted common stock trading under the symbol ‘MXCT’, and restricted common stock trading under the symbol ‘MXCN’.
“Following a recent exercise of options and issue of new common stock, the number of unrestricted shares of common stock currently trading under the symbol MXCT is 100,956,992, and the number of restricted shares of common stock currently trading under the symbol MXCN is 330,000,” the directors confirmed.
