BIOF split history picture
BIOF (BIOF) has 3 splits in our BIOF split history database. The first split for BIOF took place on May 16, 1996. This was a 1 for 30 reverse split, meaning for each 30 shares of BIOF owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1 share. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 33.3333333333333 share position following the split. BIOF's second split took place on June 15, 2012. This was a 1 for 20 reverse split, meaning for each 20 shares of BIOF owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1 share. For example, a 33.3333333333333 share position pre-split, became a 1.66666666666667 share position following the split. BIOF's third split took place on September 24, 2014. This was a 1532 for 1000 split, meaning for each 1000 shares of BIOF owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1532 shares. For example, a 1.66666666666667 share position pre-split, became a 2.55333333333333 share position following the split.

When a company such as BIOF 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 BIOF 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 BIOF split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 2.55333333333333 today.
