What is a stock split

A stock split or sub division of shares is a corporate action. It happens when a listed company hikes the number of its shares to boost the stock’s liquidity.

The number of shares outstanding increases by a specific multiple, but the total currency value of all shares outstanding remains the same as there is no change in the company’s total market capitalization. 

For example, if a company has declared a stock split in the ratio of 1:2, that means for every equity share held before the split each shareholder will have two equity shares after the split.

A stock split is declared when a company decides to intentionally lower the price of its stock, making it more affordable for investors without losing the value.
