What is a reverse stock split?

A reverse stock split is a method used by a corporation to reduce the number of its outstanding shares, while increasing proportionately the per-share price of its stock immediately following the split. A reverse stock split does not change the total market value of outstanding shares immediately prior to the split, because the price at which the stock trades is proportionately increased immediately following the split. An example of a reverse stock split is a 1-for-3 split, which would result in shareholders owning one share of stock for every three shares previously owned before the reverse stock split. With a reverse stock split, a shareholder has fewer, but higher priced shares, keeping the total market value of his or her shares the same when the market opens on the date the reverse stock split becomes effective.

Would the value of my 8x8 stock stay absolutely the same after a reverse stock?

We cannot predict what the stock price would be after a reverse stock split is effected. As always, our stock price is subject to overall market conditions and our future financial results. There is no assurance that prices for shares after the reverse stock split is implemented will be two to ten times, as applicable, the price for shares of the common stock immediately prior to the reverse stock split.

Why is 8x8 asking shareholders to vote on a reverse stock split?

The 8x8 Board of Directors is asking shareholders to approve an amendment that would grant the Board the authority to effect a reverse stock split of 8x8 common stock in the range of one-for-two (1:2) to one-for-ten (1:10) if it determines that this proposal is in the best interests of 8x8's shareholders.

The primary reason the reverse stock split is being proposed is to attempt to maintain the eligibility of our common stock for listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market and avoid delisting. In order for the Company's common stock to continue to be quoted on the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Company must maintain a minimum bid price of at least $1.00 per share and shareholders' equity of at least $2,500,000 million or $35,000,000 market value of listed securities held by non-affiliates. The Company's common stock minimum bid price has been less than $1.00 since September 22, 2008. On October 16, 2008, the Nasdaq announced that it would temporarily suspend enforcement of its rules regarding minimum closing bid price and minimum market value of public shares in light of current extraordinary market conditions. Both rules are to be reinstated on August 3, 2009.

Second, the Board believes that the increased market price of the Company's common stock expected as a result of a reverse stock split could improve the marketability of the stock and encourage interest and trading in the common stock. Many brokerage houses and institutional investors have internal policies and practices that either prohibit them from investing in low-priced stocks or tend to discourage individual brokers from recommending low-priced stocks to their customers.

Why are 8x8 shareholders being asked to vote on the reverse stock split proposal now when the company is not facing any immediate delisting proceedings?

8x8 is asking shareholders to vote for this proposal now, at the regular annual shareholder meeting, to avoid the potential expense of holding a special meeting of shareholders at a later date. Voting for this proposal now would authorize the Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split anytime during the next 12 months, if it determines that this proposal is in the best interests of 8x8's shareholders at that time.

What are the potential risks of an 8x8 reverse stock split?

In addition to not knowing what effect the reverse stock split will have upon the market prices for the Company's common stock, there is no assurance that the proposed reverse stock will achieve the desired increase in institutional interest. Additionally, the reverse stock split may result in some shareholders owning "odd-lots" of less than 100 shares of Common Stock, particularly as the ratio for the reverse stock split increases. Brokerage commissions and other costs of transactions in odd-lots may be higher, particularly on a per-share basis, than the cost of transactions in even multiples of 100 shares. The reverse stock split may also negatively impact liquidity of 8x8's common stock, and it could be construed by the market as having an anti-takeover effect.

What effect would a reverse stock split have on shareholder voting rights?

Proportionate voting rights and other rights of the holders of the Company's common stock would not be affected by a reverse stock split, other than as a result of the payment of cash in lieu of fractional shares. For example, a holder of 1% of the voting power of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock immediately prior to the effective time of the reverse stock split would continue to hold 1% of the voting power of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock after the reverse stock split.
