“On behalf of our board of directors, the Starbucks leadership team and the 300,000 partners who wear the Green Apron globally, I am proud to announce this two-for-one stock split, the sixth in our 23-year history as a public company,” said Howard Schultz, chairman and ceo of Starbucks Corporation. “This split is a direct reflection of the past seven years of increasing shareholder value, enhancing the liquidity of our shares, and building an attractive share price. It also takes place at a time when Starbucks shareholders are experiencing an all-time high in value as we continue to deliver world-class customer service and, in turn, record profits and revenue.”
