How does a stock split affect my shares?

On May 15, 1998, our company authorized a two-for-one split in the form of 100% stock dividend. For every share owned, an additional share was awarded. This doubled the amount of shares outstanding but also reduced the current price by approximately one-half.

On May 17, 2002, our company authorized a three-for-two split in the form of a stock dividend, with a cash payment for fractional shares. This increased the amount of shares outstanding by 50% but also reduced the current stock price by approximately one-third.

The overall value of your investment did not change but these splits allowed the shares to be priced more attractively. If your original investment was $20.00 per share, for valuation purposes each share now has a value of $6.6667.
