08:54 EDTGOOGGoogle Class C shares begin trading today
Google (GOOG) is effectively splitting its stock via a dividend distribution of new "Class C" shares, which begin trading today. The price of existing Google A shares, which hold one vote each, is expected to fall by half today as the C shares begin trading. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In January, Google announced that its board approved a dividend of Class C shares to be distributed on April 2 to holders of record as of March 27. The new Class C shares will trade under the ticker "GOOG" and the company's existing Class A shares will trade under a new ticker, "GOOGL." The company has previously said that its Q1 GAAP EPS will be half of what it would otherwise report because its net earnings are divided by twice as many shares. The company also said that its non-GAAP EPS will be similarly affected by the Class C dividend issuance, but will also be impacted by the expected sale of Motorola Mobile to Lenovo (LNVGY). This sale triggers "discontinued operations" accounting treatment, Google noted. Both Google Class A and Class C will be included in the S&P 500 and S&P 100 and there will not be a switch from Class A to Class C. Class A shares will subsequently be removed from Nasdaq indexes when the exchange operator rebalances them on June 23. By introducing non-voting C shares, Google's Sergey Brin and Larry Page will be able to issue stock to compensate workers or make acquisitions without diluting their voting stake, Bloomberg has noted.
