Will Ayro stock split?

Ayro hasn’t split its stock since it completed its merger with DropCar, which enabled it to become a publicly-traded company. However, DropCar implemented several stock splits. DropCar implemented a 1-for-4 reverse stock split in January 2018. The company had a 1-for-6 reverse stock split in March 2019.

If a company’s stock price falls below a required minimum, it may be delisted from an exchange. Therefore, reverse stock splits allow companies to shore up their share price to avoid delisting. There doesn’t seem to be a compelling reason for Ayro stock to split now.

Since Ayro stock has soared this year, it doesn't face the risk of delisting due to a minimum price requirement. However, the stock hasn’t soared high enough. A stock split would make it more accessible to small investors like Apple and Tesla did after their stocks surged.
