Endologix Announces Approval of Reverse Stock Split

Share:

Endologix, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ:ELGX) previously announced that
a proposal was approved at its Special Meeting of Stockholders, held
February 22, 2019, authorizing its Board of Directors to amend the
Company's certificate of incorporation to effect a reverse stock split
of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock at a
ratio not less than 1-for-5 and not greater than 1-for-10 (inclusive),
with the exact ratio to be set within that range by the Company's Board
of Directors. The number of authorized shares of common stock would
remain at 170 million shares, and the number of authorized shares of
preferred stock would remain at 5 million shares. The Company's Board of
Directors had previously directed that the proposal be submitted to the
stockholders for approval and has subsequently approved the reverse
stock split at a ratio of 1-for-10. The reverse stock split will take
effect at 4:00 p.m. ET on March 5, 2019. Beginning with the opening of
trading on March 6, 2019, the Company's common stock will trade on the
NASDAQ Global Select Market on a reverse stock split-adjusted basis.

Upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, every ten shares of
the Company's issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically
reclassified and converted into one issued and outstanding share of
common stock, par value $0.001 per share. As a result of the reverse
split, there will be approximately 10.3 million shares of common stock
issued and outstanding. The shares of common stock will trade under a
new CUSIP number, 29266S304, effective March 6, 2019. The Company's
trading symbol will remain "ELGX." All options, warrants, and
convertible securities of the Company outstanding immediately prior to
the reverse stock split will be adjusted.

No fractional shares of common stock will be issued as a result of the
reverse stock split. Stockholders who would otherwise be entitled to
receive a fractional share as a result of the reverse stock split will
instead receive one whole share of common stock.

The Company has chosen its transfer agent, American Stock Transfer &
Trust Company, LLC ("AST"), to act as exchange agent for the reverse
stock split. Stockholders owning shares via a bank, broker or other
nominee will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the
reverse stock split, and will not be required to take further action in
connection with the reverse stock split, subject to brokers' particular
processes. For those stockholders holding physical stock certificates,
AST will send instructions for exchanging those certificates for shares
held in book-entry form representing the post-split number of shares.
AST can be reached at (800) 937-5449.

About Endologix, Inc.

The Company develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for

weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body,

continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly
susceptible to rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured
AAA is approximately 80%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S.
