Term Definition
Split

The division of the outstanding shares of a corporation into either a larger or smaller number of shares, without any change in individual shareholder equity. For example, a 2-for-1 split by a company with 1 million shares outstanding and a market price of 100 results in 2 million shares outstanding and a market price is 50. A reverse split would reduce the number of shares outstanding and each share would be worth more.
