Trump Media Provides Additional Information to DJT Investors Regarding Recalling Shares

SARASOTA, Fla., April 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. (NASDAQ: DJT) (“TMTG” or the “Company”) is highlighting actions DJT shareholders can take to prevent the lending of their shares by brokerage firms for the purpose of short selling.

The Company’s shareholder base primarily consists of retail investors who hold their shares through various brokerage firms. Many of these retail shareholders invested in DJT because they support TMTG’s mission to create a free-speech beachhead against Big Tech censorship.

TMTG wants to clarify that if shares are currently on loan by brokerage firms to facilitate short selling, shareholders have the option of asking their broker to recall their shares.

After recalling their shares, long-term shareholders who believe in the Company’s future can then hold their DJT shares in a cash account, opt out of any securities lending programs, or move their shares to a Direct Registration (“DRS”) account at the Company’s transfer agent, Odyssey Transfer & Trust Company.
