NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Value Line Funds, a mutual fund company comprised of ten funds with assets exceeding $2 billion, announced that the Value Line Core Bond Fund (VAGIX) will undergo a 1-for-3 reverse share split, effective close of business on October 17, 2014.
The reverse split will not impact the value of a shareholder's investment. The reverse split will increase the per share net asset value (NAV) with a proportionate decrease in the number of shares outstanding. For example, every three pre-split shares held by a shareholder will result in the receipt of one post-split share, which will be priced at three times the net asset value ("NAV") of a pre-split share.
"The reverse split does not change the Fund's mission or any of its holdings," said Mitchell Appel, President of Value Line Funds. "With the reverse split, the change in the Core Bond Fund's NAV will now be less volatile and better reflect its daily performance."
The following table shows the effect of a hypothetical 1-for-3 reverse split:
