RBS split history picture
Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS) has 2 splits in our RBS split history database. The first split for RBS took place on September 10, 2008. This was a 1025 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of RBS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1025 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1025 share position following the split. RBS's second split took place on November 07, 2008. This was a 1 for 20 reverse split, meaning for each 20 shares of RBS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1 share. For example, a 1025 share position pre-split, became a 51.25 share position following the split.

When a company such as Royal Bank of Scotland Group 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 Royal Bank of Scotland Group 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. Looking at the RBS split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 51.25 today.
