The Reverse Stock Split was previously approved by the Company’s shareholders at the Company’s December 6, 2018 annual meeting of stockholders. The approvals provided discretion to the Board to implement the Reverse Stock Split by the end of 2019.As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every one hundred and fifty (150) shares of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Company will be converted into one (1) share of common stock.

By implementing the reverse stock split, the Company also hopes to gain broader access to the institutional investment community and improve the marketability and liquidity of the common stock for its shareholders and investors.“Now is the right time for a reverse split and this is a great move for GrowLife. Our expected impact from our 2020 CBD clone starter business will need a company structured for such growth and benefits. With the reverse we see greater access to capital, expect to shortly up-list to OTC QB thereby making it easier for shareholders to trade with more brokerage houses, and ultimately positions GrowLife to better serve our shareholder base at a more manageable level.”Additional information about the reverse stock split can be found in the Company’s Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 22, 2019.Additionally, on October 9, 2019, the Board approved the reduction of authorized capital stock, whereby the total number of authorized common stock of the Company decreased from 6,000,000,000 by a ratio of 1 for 50, to 120,000,000 shares.
