Meridian Bioscience (VIVO) has 5 splits in our VIVO split history database. The first split for VIVO took place on September 06, 2005. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of VIVO owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 1500 share position following the split. VIVO's second split took place on May 14, 2007. This was a 3 for 2 split, meaning for each 2 shares of VIVO owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares.

This was a 105 for 100 split, meaning for each 100 shares of VIVO owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 105 shares. For example, a 2250 share position pre-split, became a 2362.5 share position following the split. VIVO's 4th split took place on December 07, 1993. This was a 103 for 100 split, meaning for each 100 shares of VIVO owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 103 shares.

For example, a 2433.375 share position pre-split, became a 2506.37625 share position following the split.

When a company such as Meridian Bioscience 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 VIVO split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 2506.37625 today.
