Shares of Talbros Automotive Components (TACL) hit a new high of Rs 863 as they surged 9 per cent on the BSE in Friday's intra-day trade, in an otherwise a weak market, after the company said its board will consider stock split in August.
Earlier today, TACL announced that a meeting of board of directors of the company will be held on August 8, 2023, inter-alia, to consider and approve the unaudited financial results of the company for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.

A stock split/sub division of shares is a corporate action in which a company issues additional shares to shareholders, increasing the total by the specified ratio based on the shares they held previously. Companies often choose to split their stock to lower its trading price to a more comfortable range for most investors and to increase the liquidity of trading in its shares.
