IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC) has 2 splits in our IAC split history database. The first split for IAC took place on August 09, 2005. This was a 18 for 20 reverse split, meaning for each 20 shares of IAC owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 18 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 900 share position following the split. IAC's second split took place on August 21, 2008. This was a 2292 for 2000 split, meaning for each 2000 shares of IAC owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2292 shares. For example, a 900 share position pre-split, became a 1031.4 share position following the split.
When a company such as IAC/InterActiveCorp splits its shares, the market capitalization before and after the split takes place remains stable, meaning the shareholder now owns more shares but each are valued at a lower price per share. Often, however, a lower priced stock on a per-share basis can attract a wider range of buyers. If that increased demand causes the share price to appreciate, then the total market capitalization rises post-split. This does not always happen, however, often depending on the underlying fundamentals of the business. When a company such as IAC/InterActiveCorp conducts a reverse share split, it is usually because shares have fallen to a lower per-share pricepoint than the company would like. This can be important because, for example, certain types of mutual funds might have a limit governing which stocks they may buy, based upon per-share price. The $5 and $10 pricepoints tend to be important in this regard. Stock exchanges also tend to look at per-share price, setting a lower limit for listing eligibility. So when a company does a reverse split, it is looking mathematically at the market capitalization before and after the reverse split takes place, and concluding that if the market capitilization remains stable, the reduced share count should result in a higher price per share.
