Interesting that they desire to increase liquidity with an aim to assist share trading.

Is higher liquidity better?

I suppose time will tell.

In my view this is totally unnecessary and a waste of shareholders money. Long term it just doesn't matter. A pizza is the same size whether cut into 6 pieces or 8.
My only thought is that it doesn't seem to take much to move the price a fairly long way. Ten percent moves are reasonably common. Maybe they want to reduce the volatility so that the stock shows up differently (less "apparent" risk) on the institutional screens?
I will be voting against it but I expect to be on the losing side of the vote.
