Viggle has enjoyed great success since its launch on iOS devices in January. In anticipation of new features and expanded device compatibility, the Company is making the name change to make it simpler and more direct for Viggle members and others to easily identify the primary business of the Company with its publicly traded shares.
[The Company will trade under ticker symbol FNCXD. Subject to FINRA approval, the Company anticipates that it will change its stock symbol later this year and will publicly report such change when it becomes effective.]
The Company also announced today a reverse 1 for 2 stock split, effective June 7, 2012.
Viggle is a loyalty program for television that gives people real rewards for checking into the television shows they are watching. Currently available for Apple iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®, Viggle automatically identifies what television shows its users are watching and awards them points when they check-in. Viggle users can redeem their points in the app's rewards catalogue for items such as movie tickets, music, gift cards or convert them into charitable donations.
