SANTA CLARA, CA — SEPTEMBER 14, 2001 — NVIDIA(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) announced today that the two-for-one split of its Common Stock will be reflected as soon as trading in U.S. equity securities resumes on the Nasdaq Stock Market.  The split was to have been effective on September 12th, as previously announced by NVIDIA on August 14th; however, the effectiveness of the split has been delayed due to the disruption of U.S. financial markets caused by the tragic terrorist attacks that occurred earlier this week. 

Representatives of Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange confirmed in a press conference today that they expect the U.S. equity markets to re-open Monday morning, September 17, 2001.

NVIDIA has confirmed the following with Nasdaq: 

  • Shares of NVIDIA Common Stock will open on a post-split basis when trading resumes on Nasdaq.
  • The split-adjusted price as of the last trade on September 10, the most recent day that trading was conducted on Nasdaq, was $37.88.  
  • The Nasdaq-100 Index (QQQ) will reflect NVIDIA’s price on a post-split basis when trading resumes.
  • The ex-dividend date for the stock split will be September 12, 2001, as originally announced.

NVIDIA and Nasdaq expect the Nasdaq systems to maintain the integrity and quality of the market to which investors are accustomed when trading resumes on Monday.  NVIDIA is committed to working proactively and in concert with Nasdaq, the nation’s stock brokerage firms and other market participants, to ensure that the stock split occurs smoothly within all systems when trading resumes.
