NDAQ declares 3-for-1 split & $0.20 dividend

Nasdaq, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: NDAQ) Board of Directors has approved and declared a 3-for-1 stock split of the company’s common stock in the form of a stock dividend.

In addition, the board approved a regular quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share on the company’s outstanding common stock, which is economically equivalent to the $0.60 per share paid in the preceding quarter on a split-adjusted basis.

On April 20, 2022, Nasdaq announced that its Board of Directors approved pursuing a three-for-one stock split in the form of a stock dividend, subject to the adoption of an amendment to the company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase Nasdaq’s authorized shares of common stock by both its shareholders and the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

The proposed amendment to increase the authorized shares of common stock in order to effect the stock split in the form of a stock dividend was approved by Nasdaq shareholders and the SEC in June.

The Board declared a stock dividend with a 3-for-1 stock split, entitling each shareholder of record to two additional shares of common stock for every one share owned. 

The stock dividend record date is August 12, 2022, with the new shares distributed on August 26, 2022. On August 29, 2022, trading will begin on a split-adjusted basis.
