  • NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) had announced a 4-for-1 stock split back in May and it goes into effect today. These are the details.

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) had announced a 4-for-1 stock split back in May and it goes into effect today. The company’s board of directors had declared the stock split of NVIDIA’s common stock in the form of a stock dividend to make stock ownership more accessible to investors and employees.

The stock dividend was conditioned on obtaining stockholder approval at the company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders — which was held virtually on Thursday, June 3, at 11 a.m. PT. This increased the number of authorized shares of common stock to 4 billion shares.

Each NVIDIA stockholder of record at the close of business on June 21, 2021 will receive a dividend of three additional shares of common stock for every share held on the record date — which was distributed after the close of trading yesterday.
