Walmart made a strategic decision to benefit its shareholders

Walmart, the most important retail consumer chain in the United States and around the world, announced through a statement published on its official website that it makes strategic decisions to benefit shareholders.

In fact, the corporation was officially founded in 1962 by the entrepreneur Sam Waltondetail, who made a split of its common parts in a ratio of 3 to 1.

“Sam Walton believes it is important to keep our share price in a range where the purchase of whole shares, rather than fractions, is available to all of our partners,” he said. Doug McMillon, president and CEO of Walmart.

Given our growth and our plans for the future, we feel this is a good time to share stock and encourage our partners to participate in the coming years. As Sam says: ‘We’re all in this together.’ That’s the secret,’ he added.

Currently, Walmart shares are trading at over $166, but soon, if the split is implemented, they will trade around $55.which will open the door for the start of retail investors and/or those with little money to participate in the profits of the company, increasing demand and, therefore, the price of the shares.

The company expects the stock split to increase the number of Walmart common shares outstanding from about 2.7 billion to about 8.1 billion.
