As an NFT Marketplace launch nears, GameStop has declared the company’s stock split, a move long encouraged by retail investors in the stock.

GameStop Corp.  today announced that its Board of Directors has approved and declared a four-for-one split of the company’s common stock in the form of a stock dividend.

Company stockholders of record at the close of business on July 18, 2022 will receive a dividend of three additional shares of common stock for each then-held share of common stock.


The stock dividend will be distributed after the close of trading on July 21, 2022. Trading will begin on a stock split-adjusted basis on July 22, 2022.

GameStop’s Investor Relations on July 6th 2022.

GameStop first announced the company’s intention to split their stock 3 months ago on March 31, 2022.

For nearly a year, retail investors have speculated if GameStop would ever engage in a stock split. Even published tongue-in-cheek conspiracy when Chairman Ryan Cohen shared a photo of himself with split chopsticks under his nose.

GameStop’s declared stock split plan will be completed through a stock dividend, which awards existing shareholders with new shares. Unlike a typical stock split where already held shares are divided, in a stock dividend additional shares are allotted to existing shareholders.

GameStop currently has 76.13M shares outstanding pre-split and will have 304.52M shares outstanding post-split.

    First of all, thanks very much for all the high quality analysis. I have been a loyal follower for long.
    I have a question this stock split dividend on the other hand.
    Some said it’s just a split. Some said it’s a dividend.
    Let’s say if I purchase GME on 21st July during at 130.
    In this case, after market, I wouldn’t be receiving additional 3 shares while the share price would be split by 4 accordingly.
    In this theoretical setting, I would be losing 75%? May I have your take on that. Appreciated!
