MIRAMAR, Fla., June 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com) (OTCQB:GNBT) (https://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/GNBT/quote), in response to the large volume of investor calls, today provided an update on its new 1:1 dividend that has been approved by the Generex Board of Directors and as previously announced, will be declared on June 20, 2019, subject to any necessary regulatory approvals. This dividend will be tied to a NASDAQ or NYSE stock listing and will be paid on the day the Company is up-listed. The Company plans to submit an up-list application to an exchange shortly after the June 21, 2019 shareholders conference call. Please note, for the dividend to be declared, certain non-float holding shareholders will have to waive their rights to receive the dividend; not all have provided written agreement at this time.
Joe Moscato, President and Chief Executive Officer of Generex said, “When we took control of Generex in January 2017, we had a 3-step plan to return the Company to a national stock exchange through reorganization as a healthcare and life science holding company: 1) transformation from a development company to an end-to-end solutions provider with products and services that flow through to proprietary market channels; 2) an acquisition strategy that integrates product and service companies that generate revenues, profits and intracompany synergies among the NuGenerex family of companies; and 3) building out the end-to-end healthcare model with an HMO. We hope to accomplish this last objective through establishing NuGenerex Chronic Care Solutions, an ophthalmology, podiatry, and chronic care management company with a multi-clinic endocrinology group in Arizona, and with the buildout of NuGenerex Health in conjunction with industry leaders in the space who have launched and sold multiple successful HMOs in the past.”
Mr. Moscato continued, “Paying this dividend to our shareholders upon the up-listing to a major exchange will complete our 3-stage plan and will set the future growth strategy in place. Our up-listing will enable Generex to advance our acquisition strategy and to complete the buildout of our planned managed care organization, grow our revenue streams, expand and develop our distribution channels, complete the geographic expansion of our MSO, and build a New Life Sciences Company. Management is confident that we will continue to execute on our plans, and with this dividend to shareholders, I’m quite happy to share our successes and future opportunities with our valuable shareholders. I look forward to providing further details and answering questions on our shareholders conference call on June 21, 2019. We will provide call-in information in a future announcement.”
