Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

 

The information set forth in Item 5.03 below regarding the reverse stock split described therein is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.03.



Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws.

At 5:00 pm, Eastern time, on July 22, 2020,  the previously announced one-for-five reverse stock split of the Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock of BBX Capital Corporation (the “Company”) became effective.  At that time, each five shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock outstanding automatically converted into one share of Class A Common Stock, and each five shares of the Company’s Class B Common Stock outstanding automatically converted into one share of Class B Common Stock. Fractional shares which would otherwise have resulted from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the next largest whole share. The Company’s Class A Common Stock (NYSE: BBX) and Class B Common Stock (OTCQX: BBXTB) will commence trading on the New York Stock Exchange and OTCQX, respectively, on a post-split basis upon the opening of trading on July 23, 2020. 

In connection with the reverse stock split, the Company obtained new CUSIP numbers for its Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock. The new CUSIP number for the Company’s Class A Common Stock is 05491N302, and the new CUSIP number for the Company’s Class B Common Stock is 05491N401.

In accordance with Florida law, the reverse stock split was effected through Articles of Amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended (the “Articles of Incorporation”), filed by the Company with the Florida Department of State, effective July 22, 2020. In connection with the reverse stock split, the Amendment also ratably decreased the number of authorized shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock from 150,000,000 shares to 30,000,000 shares and the number of authorized shares of the Company’s Class B Common Stock from 20,000,000 shares to 4,000,000. Further, in accordance with the provision in the Company’s Articles of Incorporation which provides,  in the event of a reorganization, recapitalization, merger or stock split affecting the Company’s Class B Common Stock, for proportional and appropriate adjustment of the thresholds relating to the number of outstanding shares of the Company’s Class B Common Stock and the voting percentages of the Company’s Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock based on such outstanding share amounts, the Amendment also ratably decreased each such share threshold.    The foregoing description of the Amendment is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

In addition to the adjustments described above, the shares authorized for issuance under the Company’s Amended and Restated 2014 Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Plan”), and underlying outstanding restricted stock awards previously granted under the Plan will be ratably reduced in connection with the reverse stock split. 

The Company’s transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC (“AST”), is serving as the exchange agent for the reverse stock split. Shareholders with shares held in certificated form will receive from AST instructions regarding the process for exchanging their shares. AST will be issuing all of the post-split shares in book-entry form unless physical certificates are requested by the shareholder. Shareholders with pre-split shares held in book-entry form or through a bank, broker,

custodian or other nominee are not required to take any action and will see the effect of the reverse stock split reflected in their accounts. Beneficial holders should contact their bank, broker, custodian or other nominee with any questions regarding their procedures in connection with the reverse stock split.
