    Examples of Types of Corporate Actions

    Types of Corporate Action Description
    Bonus Issue Newshares in a company that are issues free to existing shareholders. Newshares are typically issued to shareholders in proportion to their holdings as at a date specified by the company.

    For example, the company declared 1 bonus share for every 5 shares held.

    If you are holding 1000 shares, your bonus entitlement will be 200 shares.
    Share Split A share split is similar to a bonus issue in that shareholders are issued with new shares at no cost. But its effect on the balance sheet is different from a bonus issue.

    Usually, a share split reduces the par value of each share, but increases the number of shares by the same proportion.

    For example, the Company declares Sub-division of every 1 existing ordinary share into 5 ordinary shares”.

    If you originally held 1000 shares, your new holdings will be increased to 5000 shares.
    Share Consolidation Share consolidation is the opposite of a share split.

    The existing shareholder's shares are replaced with a smaller number of shares with a higher par value.

    For example, the Company declared “Share consolidation of every 10 ordinary shares into 1 consolidated share” If you originally held 1000 shares, your new holdings will be reduced to 100 shares

    Effect on prices whenever there is a corporate action 

    (This is for illustration only;  you should not rely on the information below for your trading decision)

    The trading price will very often be adjusted accordingly to reflect the effect of the share consolidation / split / dividend / bonus / rights issues or others. However, the stock prices may also be affected by a myriad of factors such as the usual market forces of demand and supply, economic and political events (both locally and overseas).
