This excerpt taken from the CHRW DEF 14A filed Sep 14, 2005.
C.H. Robinson is requesting stockholder approval of the Boards proposal to amend our Certificate of Incorporation (the Current Certificate) to effect a 2-for-1 the stock split of the Common Stock (the Stock Split) and to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 130,000,000 shares to 480,000,000 shares (the Amendment). Assuming that the Stock Split and the Amendment are approved, the company intends to file the certificate of amendment to the Current Certificate included as Appendix A to this proxy statement (the Certificate of Amendment). Our Board has already approved the Certificate of Amendment and, assuming the approval of the Stock Split and the Amendment at the Special Meeting, the Certificate of Amendment would become effective upon its filing with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the Effective Time).
