Under Armour (UA) stock split to create class C shares, UA.C

Under Armor split its stock in the form of a spinoff of a new non-voting class of shares. One share of new class C shares was distributed for each Under Armor share. The two classes trade separately so this should be treated as a spinoff rather than a stock split in the accounting software. The class A shares still trade under the UA ticker while the new class C shares trade under the UA.C symbol.

This action is a simple spinoff transaction in the accounting software.  The information below is based on the average of the opening and closing prices of both classes of UA shares.

NOTE: In connection to this transaction, a stock split was performed on Under Armour Class C shares, in late June, 2016. For information and steps on how to enter this, please see our FAQ page at: https://www.iclub.com/faq/Home/Article?id=528
