    • Let me break this down to something you may understand.

      Say an IPO is an apple.
      Say AIG has 5 apples
      Say the group of 5 apples together is worth 18 million shares at $50 each.

      Now... say AIG takes 3 of those apples and breaks them away that each is now worth 2 million new symbol shares at $30 each.

      You now have 2 apples in your group with 18 million shares at $50 each.

      Your quiz is the following: With the share count staying constant at 18 million shares, will the 2 apple group increase or decrease in share price?
