Stock split is a type of corporate action that increases the number of outstanding shares of a company. It involves splitting the face value of the shares of a company. Stock split does not affect the overall capital of the company. Thus, where the overall value of the capital remains the same, the per share value declines in proportion to the decline in the face value of the shares. From an investor point of view, the total value of the shares held remains the same, though, the per share value decreases against an increase in the number of shares post split.
