AmSurg became a public company on December 3, 1997, after it was spun off from its former parent American Healthways, Inc. (formerly American Healthcorp, Inc.) (NASDAQ: AMHC).

How many classes of common stock does AmSurg have?

When AmSurg became a public company it had two classes of common stock, which traded on the NASDAQ Stock Market (National Market) under the symbols: AMSGA and AMSGB. On July 11, 2001, AmSurg received shareholder approval at its 2001 Annual Meeting to reclassify its Class A and Class B common stock into one class of common stock. This class was listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol AMSG at the opening of the market on Friday, July 13, 2001, and the listing of the Class A and Class B common stocks under the symbols AMSGA and AMSGB, respectively, was eliminated.

The Class A and Class B shares were reclassified into the new class of common stock using a one-to-one conversion ratio and, as a result, there is no increase in the Company’s total number of shares of common stock outstanding due to the reclassification. Shareholders of AMSGA or AMSGB may retain their stock certificates, which will automatically represent the same number of shares of common stock in AMSG
