The Company’s stockholders granted authority to the Board of Directors, in its discretion, to effect this reverse split of Halcón’s outstanding common stock at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on May 6, 2015.
When the reverse stock split becomes effective, every five shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock will automatically be converted into one share of common stock.
