Carry out share splits quickly and correctly, including automatic generation of notices and minutes, sending, signing, automatic updating of articles of association and shareholder book; and submission to the Brønnøysund registries.
The general meeting can decide to split each of the company’s shares into two or more shares. The platform currently does not support splits in numbers that are not whole numbers, with the exception of cases where there is only one shareholder where it is sufficient for the denomination to add up to a number of decimal places.
In the event of a split, there is no increase in the share capital. Existing share capital is only distributed over more shares than originally.
Splits in whole numbers create few challenges because each individual shareholder receives a number of shares after the split equal to the number of shares they had before the split multiplied by the split factor. But a split can lead to the company’s shares having a face value that does not go up, and that should be avoided.
Follow-up of decisions
Good to know
- The split cannot cause the denomination to have an unlimited number of decimal places – the platform checks this
- The platform distributes the shares in the event of the split automatically to the company’s existing shareholders.
- There a distribution according to original ownership would have resulted in fractional shares (which is not permitted), the shares are distributed to the shareholder or shareholders with the highest fraction until there are no more shares to distribute
- It is possible to manually adjust the distribution of the shares, for example in a situation where a shareholder does not want to accept that the number of shares allocated is rounded down.
