BRITANNIA INDUSTRIES LTD has informed BSE that the Company has fixed November 30, 2018 as the Record Date for the purpose of Sub-division of One Equity Share of Rs. 2 each to Two Equity Shares of Rs. 1 each.

The adjustments to be made on account of the above corporate action in line with SEBI guidelines are given below:

A) Adjustment Factor:

 

If the ratio of Stock Split is say A:B, the adjustment factor is defined as A/B. The stock split ratio of BRIT is 2:1. Therefore, the adjustment factor for stock split in this case would be 2/1= 2.

 

Therefore, based on the above, the final adjustment factor for the scrip BRIT would be 2.

2.      Market Lot:  The adjusted market lot shall be arrived at by multiplying the old market lot by the adjustment factor (2).

 

The revised market lot would therefore be as under:

 

Existing Market lot - 100; Adjustment factor – 2

 

Revised market lot after multiplying existing market lot by adjustment factor – 200(100*2)
