Private sector lender HDFC Bank may soon stock split. The lender on Monday said its board of directors at a meeting on May 22 will consider a proposal for “sub‐division of bank’s equity shares from one equity share of face value of Rs 2 each to two equity shares of face value of Rs 1 each.” Stock split is a tool used by corporates to boost liquidity of their shares.

Sub-division of shares doesn’t impact the market capitalization of a company. Shares of HDFC Bank on Monday closed 1.7 per cent lower at Rs 2,328.
