Hologic (HOLX) has 3 splits in our Hologic stock split history database. The first split for HOLX took place on March 26, 1996. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of HOLX owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares.

For example, a 4000 share position pre-split, became a 8000 share position following the split.
When a company such as Hologic 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.
