Isn't the majority of the increase in shares a result of a stock split? There has been the dilution but not as much as the increase in shares in the table makes it look like.

I apologize for my inadvertent and sloppy error. The following I hope is correct.

You can find the following below at my BAM notes (search October 21, 2009)

This was corrected on 10/22/09 as I inadvertently missed a 3 for 2 Stock Split on June 4, 2007.


Greater maturities in 5 years. Greater Maturities to Capital. Increased Debt Levels. Lower coverage ratios. Greater Debt to Capital. Greater underfunded pension. Greater preferred stock. Share count has decreased. Revenues have increased 60%. Revenues Per Share have increased 67%. EPS has decreased 60% . Book Value has increased by 15%. Cash Flow per share has increased by 8%. Decrease in tax rate, which leads to higher NI. Yet, that could be a sign that higher NI is not sustainable. Negative Working Capital now. Lower returns on equity and capital. Higher ratio of Dividends to Profits. Increased Institutional Holders. Fitch IDR was BBB+ in 3/07, now BBB.
