LEVIS, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- Nuvolt Corporation Inc. ("Nuvolt" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE: NCO) announces that the Corporation will give effect to the consolidation of its common shares on the basis of ten (10) pre-consolidation common shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share and that the post-consolidation common shares will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange at the opening of markets this Friday, January 18, 2013 under the current symbol "NCO" and new CUSIP number 67073J303.
Nuvolt shareholders authorized the consolidation at the shareholders' special meeting held on December 18, 2012.
