Organetix, Inc. (DMND) Declares 11 For 10 Forward Split Shareholders To Receive Stock Dividend


10/19/2005 5:09:31 PM

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 15, 2003--Organetix, Inc. (www.organetixinc.com; OTCBB: OGTX - News) announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a 11 for 10 stock split in the form of a stock dividend. The stock dividend will be paid on February 6, 2004 to shareholders of record at the close of business on January 30, 2004. This is effectively a 10% common stock dividend, which is being awarded to all common shareholders of record on the above date.

Organetix CEO and President, Brad Clarke, stated "We believe that the increased number of shares will enable us to reward our shareholders, increase our shareholder base and improve the liquidity for our shares. Limited trading in our company's stock can be attributed to our relatively small float. Over 80% of our shares are held by the company principals."

As the majority shareholder, Amma Corporation, has approved the stock split, shareholders will not be required to take any further action. After the payment date, shareholders are encouraged to verify that the shares held in their brokerage accounts are adjusted to reflect the stock dividend. After the payment date, shareholders as of the record date will receive a new certificate for their pro-rata additional shares.
