Safe & Green Development (NASDAQ:SGDVV) stock is taking off on Wednesday as the company’s share distribution goes into effect.

This share distribution comes from Safe & Green (NASDAQ:SGBX, NASDAQ:SGBXV), as it spins off Safe & Green Development as its own real estate business. The company announced the share distribution date last week, which has resulted in volatility for SGDVV, SGBX and SGBXV stock over the last week.

With all of that recent activity, as well as the share distribution date being today, it makes sense that investors would see extra movement out of SGDVV stock. Especially as transactions for the stock have been possible over the last week but only going into effect after the distribution.

As for what the share distribution entails, investors in SGBX are receiving shares of SGDVV stock today. This has them getting 0.930886 shares of SGDVV for every five shares of SGBX stock that they hold.
