Subject:  splits paid as dividends Date:  1/4/2000  6:12 PM

Recently I read of a company paying a 3:1 split. However the article stated it was "a 3:1 stock split announced in the form of a 200% stock dividend".
What does this mean? Will the shares be distributed three for every one you own? or what?

I'm confused.
