Auto ancillary stock Minda Industries gained 3% today post declaring bonus shares.
Yesterday, the company declared bonus shares in the ratio of 1:1.
While declaring a stellar set of results in May 2022, the company's board had approved the issue of bonus shares.
The record date for the same was 10 June 2022. This means the shareholders who held shares as on the record date would be entitled to receive the bonus shares.
The issue of bonus shares helped increase the liquidity of the stock.
Corporate action events like bonus issues and stock splits often bring material changes to a company through changes in the capital structure.
In case of bonus, they might seem to be good thing, but they actually give investors nothing they didn't already have.
In substance, it's just a way of breaking up the same company into a higher number of shares and distributing these additional shares pro-rata to shareholders.
Note that the auto industry faced serious concerns such as semiconductor shortage, rising input costs, among other reasons.
Despite all this, Minda Industries reported decent quarterly numbers and registered growth.
