Shares of India’s Greenlam Industries surged on Friday on news that the company’s board of directors would meet next month to contemplate a stock split.

The counter, which rocketed 18.6% in intra-day trade, finished 7.31% higher at INR1581.95 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) in an otherwise downbeat market, valuing the company at around INR38bn ($507.32m).

This was after the maker of laminates and decorative veneers told the bourses that its board will meet on 13 December 2021 “to consider and approve the proposal to sub-divide/split the face value of equity shares of the company from a face value of INR5 per share to a face value of INR1 per share or in such manner as may be determined” by the company’s board.

The proposal is “subject to the approval of the shareholders of the company and such other approvals as may be required”, according to a 25 November regulatory filing.

Latest quarterly performance

New Delhi-based Greenlam’s founders decreased their holding in the firm from 54.9% to 53.9% in the quarter ended 30 September.

For the July-September quarter, the manufacturer of engineered doors and wooden flooring reported an 11% on-year increase in consolidated profit on a 57% year-over-year growth in consolidated revenue from operations. But rising input costs and delays in passing on costs to customers, among other things, resulted in lower gross margins.

Profits for the three months to 30 September 2021 stood at INR207m on revenue of INR4.54bn, according to a separate stock market statement.

The period, the second quarter of the ongoing Indian financial year, saw its subsidiary firm Greenlam South initiate steps to secure approvals to build a new factory in the Andhra Pradesh state. Once operational, the plant, coming up on a 66.49-acre patch, would be able to produce 1.5 million laminate sheets or boards a year.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
