Formatted abstract This study considers the price adjustment of equity shares going ex-bonus. A theoretical evaluation of ex-bonus price 'adjustment is developed and evidence is documented that no abnormal returns are recorded on ex-dates. This evidence is consistent with accepted theory that the markets are efficient and no value is created by merely increasing the number of equity shares outstanding.
