Stock Splits

How does a two-for-one stock split actually work?

In a two-for-one stock split, each shareholder receives one additional share for each share that he or she holds as of a certain date, known as the "record date." As a result, the number of issued shares is multiplied by two, and on the date following the distribution date (the "ex-split date") each share is worth half of what it was worth immediately prior to the split.

Why is this stock split called a "stock dividend"?

"Stock dividend" is simply the technical term for stock split. They are one in the same. The result of a stock split is the delivery of incremental shares or a "dividend of shares" to the rightful party.

What is the record date for the stock split?

The record date is June 9, 2016. If you are a shareholder as of the market close on the record date, you are entitled to receive the additional shares.

What is the distribution date for the stock split?

The distribution date for the additional shares is June 27, 2016. If shares are registered in your name as of the market close on the record date (June 9, 2016), and you retain the shares until the distribution date (June 27, 2016), you will receive the additional shares on the distribution date.

What is the ex-split date?

The ex-split date is June 28, 2016. When the market opens on June 28, 2016, one trading day after the distribution date, shares of Core-Mark will begin trading on NASDAQ at the new split-adjusted price

What happens if I sell some of my shares before the record date?

If you sell your shares before the record date, you are not entitled to receive the additional split shares.

If I sell my shares between the record date and the distribution date, am I entitled to split shares?

No. From the record date of June 9, 2016 to the distribution date of June 27, 2016, shares of Core-Mark common stock continue to trade at the pre-split price under the company's ticker symbol "CORE". In this situation, sellers receive full value of the shares they sell; they are not entitled to the split shares.

What happens if I buy shares of Core-Mark stock after the June 9, 2016 record date but before the June 27, 2016 distribution date?

If you buy shares of Core-Mark stock at the pre-split price between the June 9, 2016 record date and the June 27, 2016 distribution date, you are entitled to receive the split shares. The shares you purchase will have a "due bill" attached, entitling you to the split shares.

Are there any personal income tax consequences as a result of Core-Mark's stock split?

There are no tax consequences to U.S. residents as a result of Core-Mark's stock split. The tax basis of each share owned after the stock split is half of what it was before the split. For example, if you owned 100 shares before the split with a tax basis of $20 per share, after the split you would own 200 shares of stock with a tax basis of $10 per share. Foreign residents should consult their local tax advisors.

Will I receive an updated share certificate following a split?

All record-keeping for Core-Mark stock splits is done electronically. If you hold your Core-Mark shares in a brokerage account immediately prior to a split, the additional shares will be deposited into that account. If you have a share certificate or hold your shares directly with Core-Mark's stock transfer agent, Wells Fargo Shareowner Services, written notice indicating the number of your split-adjusted shares will be mailed to you. New physical share certificates are no longer issued. If you still have original, physical share certificates for Core-Mark stock, you should contact Core-Mark's stock transfer agent, Wells Fargo Shareowner Services, for information on how to transfer your share certificates to an electronic record.

My shares are held by a brokerage firm. How do my shares get adjusted for a stock split?

If your Core-Mark shares are held in a brokerage account, they split automatically on the distribution date. You do not need to do anything.

How does a stock split affect the number of shares outstanding and the future calculation of earnings per share?

When stock splits on a two-for-one basis, the number of shares outstanding doubles. Earnings per share are half what they otherwise would have been because the net earnings are divided into twice as many shares.

You recently declared a $0.16 per share cash dividend. What impact does the stock split have on that announcement?

The recently-announced quarterly cash dividend has a record date of May 25, 2016, meaning it will be paid to those who hold shares as of May 25, 2016, and a payment date of June 15, 2016. The stock split has a record date of June 9 and a distribution date of June 27, and, as such, it does not in any way impact the payment of the recently-announced quarterly cash dividend.

Where are shareholder notices from Core-Mark mailed?

If you have stock certificates or hold shares directly with Wells Fargo Shareowner Services, any shareholder mailings from Core-Mark will be sent to the address for you that Wells Fargo Shareowner Services has on file.
