Nxt-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD) (the "Company" or "Nxt-ID"), a provider of technology products and services for healthcare applications, filed a definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to hold a special shareholders meeting on Friday, October 15, 2021 to vote on a reverse split of Nxt-ID's Common stock and a reverse split of its Series C Preferred Stock. The meeting will take place at the offices of Sullivan & Worcester LLP, 1633 Broadway, 32nd Floor, New York, New York at 10:30 AM Eastern Time.

The Company is proposing the reverse stock split primarily to regain compliance with The NASDAQ Capital Market $1.00 minimum bid price requirement and to adhere to the conditions laid out by a NASDAQ Hearing Panel for continued listing on the NASDAQ national exchange. The reverse stock splits are intended to reduce the number of shares of each of its Common Stock and its Series C Preferred Stock while proportionately increasing each's price per share primarily in order to enable the Company to regain compliance with Nasdaq's minimum bid price requirement as well as satisfy undertakings to certain warrant-holders. If the proposal is not approved, the Company's Common Stock will be subject to delisting, adversely impacting the Company's market valuation and shareholders liquidity.

The Company's management believes that its recent capital raise and its newly revised business plan are important elements to support a new growth strategy for the Company which will generate long-term shareholder value. Continued listing on a national exchange such as NASDAQ will also facilitate future capital raises and maintain liquidity for all shareholders.

Nxt-ID's Board of Directors is unanimously in favor of the reverse stock splits and urges all shareholders to vote FOR the proposals. The reverse stock split proposals must be approved by a majority of the Company's Common shares outstanding. All shareholders of record as of September 16, 2021 are entitled to vote.
