The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "MITT" and, starting on July 23, 2021, under a new CUSIP number: 001228 501.
After the close of business on July 22, 2021, the effective time of the reverse stock split, every three issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock were converted into one share of the Company’s common stock. As a result of the reverse stock split, the number of outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock was reduced from 48,510,978 to approximately 16,164,007.
No fractional shares were issued in connection with the reverse stock split.
