CHS split history picture
Chicos FAS (CHS) has 5 splits in our CHS split history database. The first split for CHS took place on December 10, 1997. This was a 1 for 10 reverse split, meaning for each 10 shares of CHS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 1 share. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 100 share position following the split. CHS's second split took place on May 17, 2001. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of CHS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 100 share position pre-split, became a 150 share position following the split. CHS's third split took place on January 22, 2002. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of CHS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 150 share position pre-split, became a 225 share position following the split. CHS's 4th split took place on July 30, 2002. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of CHS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 225 share position pre-split, became a 450 share position following the split. CHS's 5th split took place on February 23, 2005. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of CHS owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 450 share position pre-split, became a 900 share position following the split.

When a company such as Chicos FAS 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 Chicos FAS 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 CHS split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 900 today.
