XOM split history picture
Exxon Mobil (XOM) has 5 splits in our XOM split history database. The first split for XOM took place on July 26, 1976. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of XOM owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 2000 share position following the split. XOM's second split took place on June 12, 1981. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of XOM owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 2000 share position pre-split, became a 4000 share position following the split. XOM's third split took place on September 15, 1987. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of XOM owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 4000 share position pre-split, became a 8000 share position following the split. XOM's 4th split took place on April 14, 1997. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of XOM owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 8000 share position pre-split, became a 16000 share position following the split. XOM's 5th split took place on July 19, 2001. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of XOM owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 16000 share position pre-split, became a 32000 share position following the split.

When a company such as Exxon Mobil 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. Looking at the XOM split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 32000 today.
