Broadcom announced the following split below during earnings. Do I have to hold my BRCM shares until Feb. 21 to recieve the additional shares? Or since I had them past Feb. 6th I will receive the additional shares even if I sell my BRCM before Feb. 21st. Can someone please clarify. Thanks.
"In the stock split, holders of Broadcom's Class A common stock will receive one additional share of Class A common stock for every two shares held on the record date of February 6, 2006. A comparable stock dividend will be distributed to holders of Broadcom's Class B common stock. The additional shares of Class A and Class B common stock will be distributed on or about February 21, 2006 by the company's transfer agent, U.S. Stock Transfer Corporation"
