ABC's capital structure is as follows:

Common Stock (\$4 par) \$90 mil

Paid-in capital in excess 300 mil

Retained Earnings 700 mil

Currently, the stock is selling at \$260. If the firm does a 5 for 1 split, which of the following would be correct after the split?

1.  Par value = \$20 Number of shares = 112.5 mil Stock price = \$52 Par Value = \$.80 Number of shares = 112.5 mil Stock price = \$52 Par value = \$.80 Number of shares = 450 mil Stock price = \$52 Par value = \$20 Number of shares = 112.5 mil Stock price = \$208

Before Stock Split:

Par value per share = \$4.00

Number of shares = Common stock / Par value per share
Number of shares = \$90 million / \$4.00
Number of shares = 22.50 million

Stock price per share = \$260.00

After Stock Split:

Firm does a 5 for 1 stock split which means 5 shares are given for each share.

Par value per share = \$4.00 * (1/5)
Par value per share = \$0.80

Number of shares = 22.50 million * 5
Number of shares = 112.50 million

Stock price per share = \$260.00 * (1/5)
Stock price per share = \$52.00
