TechMediaBreaks — Cepton Inc. (NASDAQ: CPTN) CCO Talks Industrializing Lidar with Automotive Programs, Company’s Reverse Stock Split Takes Effect

September 22, 2023 10:13:17

Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance lidar solutions, is in the spotlight. Cepton’s new chief commercial officer Mitch Hourtienne was a guest during a recent Proactive Investors interview. During the interview, Hourtienne, who has been serving as Cepton senior vice president, and Proactive Investors host Steve Darling discussed his 20-year-plus journey to Cepton as well as his new responsibilities. Hourtienne has worked at several companies, including Sensata, Freescale Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies and Siemens VDO Automotive. Hourtienne explained that at Cepton, he has been involved in securing the company’s flagship ADAS lidar series production contract with General Motors while also strengthening the company’s partnership with Koito Manufacturing Co, a world-leading tier 1 supplier. In his new COO role, he will continue to oversee the company’s business development, product management and marketing teams. The company also announced that its common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis today. The company has previously announced the 1-for-10 reverse stock split of its common stock, noting that the shares will trade under the existing symbol: CPTN.

“The reverse stock split affected all issued shares of common stock,” the company stated in the press release. “As a result of the reverse stock split, every 10 shares of common stock issued as of the effective time were automatically combined into one share of common stock. No fractional shares were issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Stockholders who would otherwise be entitled to a fractional share of common stock are instead entitled to receive a cash payment (without interest) in an amount equal to their respective pro rata share of the total proceeds of the sale of the aggregated fractional shares net of any brokerage and other costs incurred to sell such shares. The reverse stock split affected all stockholders uniformly and did not alter any stockholder’s percentage interest in the company’s outstanding common stock, except for adjustments that may result from the treatment of fractional shares, as described above.”
