 Spin Off 

A spin off is a corporate action that occurs when a company distributes part of its assets to form a new publicly traded company. When a spin off occurs stockholders of the parent company receive shares of the new company in the form of a stock dividend.

GainsKeeper monitors all mandatory corporate actions to U.S. equities, and automatically adjusts each of your investments accordingly. In many cases a corporate action, such as a spin off, will result in a new position or a change to the cost basis of a security.
