Autodesk (ADSK) has 4 splits in our Autodesk stock split history database. The first split for ADSK took place on March 30, 1987. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of ADSK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 3000 share position following the split. ADSK's second split took place on October 31, 1994. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of ADSK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 3000 share position pre-split, became a 6000 share position following the split. ADSK's third split took place on April 19, 2002. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of ADSK owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 6000 share position pre-split, became a 12000 share position following the split. ADSK's 4th split took place on December 21, 2004.

For example, a 12000 share position pre-split, became a 24000 share position following the split.

When a company such as Autodesk splits its shares, the market capitalization before and after the split takes place remains stable, meaning the shareholder now owns more shares but each are valued at a lower price per share. Often, however, a lower priced stock on a per-share basis can attract a wider range of buyers. If that increased demand causes the share price to appreciate, then the total market capitalization rises post-split. This does not always happen, however, often depending on the underlying fundamentals of the business. Looking at the Autodesk stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 24000 today.
