This move in the stock was after the company said it will consider a stock split and bonus issue in the upcoming board meeting to be held on June 10, 2021.
“The board of directors of the company is scheduled to meet on June 10, 2021 to consider the audited financial results of the company for the quarter and year ended 31st March, 2021, as well as the recommendation of final dividend for the fiscal year 2020-21 and book closure for the purpose,” Tide Water Oil stated in an exchange filing.
The board of directors will also consider a proposal of subdivision of shares and declaration of bonus issue to/for shareholders at such rate/ratio as will be decided at the meeting, according to Tide Water Oil (India).
Previously, in March 2016, the company issued bonus shares at a 1:1 ratio, i.e. one bonus share for every share held in the company. The oil marketing and distribution firm also reduced the face value of equity shares from Rs.10 to Rs.5.
In general, a company intends to go for a stock split in order to make its shares more affordable to small retail investors and increase liquidity.
