Affle India’s board of directors is scheduled to meet on 26 August 2021 to take a call on the split of equity shares. Subjected to approval from its stakeholders, the company has confirmed this in an official statement.
Let’s uncover more details below.
Why this Stock Split?
Essentially, stock split is a move where a company issues more shares without changing its market capital. Here, organisations issue additional shares to their stakeholders without reducing their value. There are different ways of completing a stock split, like 2-for-1 or 3-for-1.
Let’s assume a company has decided to go with a 3-for-1 split. In that case, as a stakeholder, you will receive two additional shares against each share that you previously had. So, if you previously had 200 shares of that company, now you will own 600 shares, but the total value of stocks will not increases.
A stock split like this helps companies to improve the liquidity of their stock, primarily among the retail investor segment. In addition, this strategy is adopted to make shares affordable for different investors who could not afford to buy these shares previously, owing to their high prices. On the other side, a stock split adjusts the share price automatically in the market. Hence, we can expect this move to benefit both Affle India and its prospective investors.
