Chipotle (NYSE:CMG) stock could see a major catalyst when June 6 rolls around as the Mexican fast-food chain eyes a stock split.

The Board of Directors at Chipotle has approved a 50-for-1 stock split. Now, it just needs shareholders to vote in favor of the split during a meeting on June 6.

Chipotle Chief Financial and Administrative Officer Jack Hartung said the following about the split:

“This is the first stock split in Chipotle’s 30-year history, and we believe this will make our stock more accessible to employees as well as a broader range of investors […] This split comes at a time when our stock is experiencing an all-time high driven by record revenues, profits, and growth.”

What This Means for CMG Stock

This could be a major win for Chipotle if investors approve the stock split. The company’s shares closed out Tuesday at $2,797.56 apiece. If this split goes into effect, each share will be split into 50 shares.

Enacting such a stock split would drastically lower the price of CMG stock without affecting the company’s market capitalization. This could allow Chipotle to attract new investors who aren’t willing to take a stake in its stock at current values.

CMG stock is up 5.1% as of Wednesday morning and could see further gains if investors approve the share split.
