A stock split announcement divides a company’s one share into additional shares, but does not affect the company’s market cap, but lowers the share price, resulting in sufficient liquidity of the stock, whereas a bonus issue announcement is made by a company to offer additional shares for each share held by existing shareholders, and this step is taken by a company to avoid paying a dividend in cash form to stockholders. As a result of these two corporate actions, the following stocks will announce bonus issues and stock splits in May.
