Please expain the formula you are using and how you got the answers in detail.

Simmons Mineral Operations, Inc., (SMO) currently has 505,000 shares of stock outstanding that sell for \$80 per share. Assuming no market imperfections or tax effects exist, what will the share price be after:

a.SMO has a four-for-three stock split?

b.SMO has a 20 percent stock dividend?

c.SMO has a 42.5 percent stock dividend?

d.SMO has a three-for-seven reverse stock split?

e. Determine the new number of shares outstanding in parts (a) through (d).

In a split the share price decreases while the number of shares increases

a. in a four for 3 split, 4 shares are created for every 3 shares

so the new share price = 80*3/4 = 60

number of shares = 505,000*4/3 = 673,333.33

b. new share price = 80/(1+0.2) = 80/1.2 =66.67

number of shares = 505,000*1.2 = 606,000

c. new share price = 80/1.425 = 56.14

number of shares = 505,000*1.425 = 719,625

d. price of shares = 80*7/3 = 186.67 (in a split share number decreases)

nuber of shars = 505,000*3/7 = 216,428.57
