In the spring of 2020, Actifio was selected as one of the top cloud companies by The Channel Company and was named one of the 12 Data Protection Companies 2020.

Our team invested in Actifio in February 2019 at $7.5 per share.
A reverse stock split ratio initiated by Actifio meant that for every 100,000 shares their owner got only one share. If a shareholder had fewer than 100,000 shares, he would receive money for his shares.
Actifio set a "fair value" per share at $0.24. So an owner of 10,000 shares (before the split) would receive $0.024 for his securities.
Actifio’s reverse split was implemented in compliance with legal procedures, and unfortunately the investment had to be closed in December 2020 with a result of -100%.
