  • What is the “ex date” of the event?
    • Since this was not a dividend, there is no “ex date.”  This is structured as a stock split, which was effective after market closes on May 14, 2015.  The new Class C common stock began trading on the NYSE at the open of business on May 15, 2015.  The ticker “NYLD.A” now represents Class A shares while “NYLD” represents Class C shares.
