- New Dates Established for 1:1 Shareholder stock dividend
• Pay Date: November 29, 2019
• Ex-Date: December 2, 2019
• Record Date remains August 30, 2019
MIRAMAR, Fla., Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com) (OTCQB:GNBT) (“Generex”) today announced that the company will file for an extension to file its 10K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2019 with the SEC, and therefore the pay date for the 1:1 dividend has been extended 30 days to Friday November 29, 2019, with the Ex-Date of Monday December 2, 2019. Please note the record date remains August 30th, so if you sell your stock up through the ex-date, your dividend travels with your sale to the buyer; alternatively, if you buy stock up through the ex-date you will receive the dividend from the seller of the shares you acquired.
Joseph Moscato, Generex President & Chief Executive Officer stated, “The audit process for review and verification of the 23-year history of Generex by our new audit team has taken longer than originally projected due to the complexity of integrating the financials of the numerous acquisitions that we have made in the last two years. The 10K is further complicated as a result of our corporate restructuring, which includes not just acquisitions, but also the retirement of significant debt and the elimination of various notes and other financial obligations that Generex has carried on the books for a number of years. Also, as this is the first GNBT 10K filing for our new audit firm, and we need to work with 5 additional audit firms that represent the subsidiaries that we acquired, extra time is needed for our finance team and all of our auditors to ensure that our annual report is precise and provides the accurate financial record of Generex as we prepare for the next stage in the company’s development. Though the extension for the 10K filing allows for 15 days, we are confident the 10K will be filed in the next few days. We are sorry for the delay, but timing on items for 10K review and audit approval are crucial to completion of the third phase of our overall plans to comply with all requirements for the Nasdaq up-list.”
