How Do I Report The Change In My Holdings Resulting From An Issuer Event?

Example: a 4-for-1 consolidation of 100 common shares

If you held 100 common shares that were consolidated on a 4:1 basis (so that you now hold 25 common shares), you report the change as follows. Calculate the new number of common shares you hold after the consolidation -in this case, 25 common shares. Subtract your new holdings from what you held before the stock consolidation; in this case, 100 – 25, and then report the difference – i.e. 75 common shares, using nature of transaction code 37 – Stock split or consolidation.

Example: a 4-for-1 split of 100 common shares

If you held 100 common shares that were split on a 4:1 basis (so that you now hold 400 common shares), you report the change as follows. Calculate the new number of common shares you hold after the split – in this case, 400 common shares. Subtract from this number the number of common shares you held before the split: 400 -100, and report the difference – i.e. 300 common shares as an acquisition using nature of transaction code 37.
