RESTAURANT GENERAL MANAGERS WILL RECEIVE SPECIAL EQUITY GRANT

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE: CMG) today announced that its Board of Directors approved a 50-for-one split of its common stock. This would be one of the biggest stock splits in New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) history.

The stock split is subject to shareholder approval of an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock to accommodate the stock split. The company intends to seek shareholder approval for this amendment at its upcoming annual meeting on June 6, 2024.

If the Certificate of Incorporation amendment is approved, shareholders of record as of June 18, 2024 will receive 49 additional shares for each share held, which will be distributed after market close on June 25, 2024. Chipotle’s shares are expected to begin trading on a post-split basis at the market open on Wednesday, June 26, 2024.

“This is the first stock split in Chipotle’s 30-year history, and we believe this will make our stock more accessible to employees as well as a broader range of investors,” said Jack Hartung, Chief Financial and Administrative Officer, Chipotle. “This split comes at a time when our stock is experiencing an all-time high driven by record revenues, profits, and growth.”

To commemorate this special event and in recognition of the Company’s strong performance, Chipotle announced a special one-time equity grant for all restaurant general managers as well as crew members with more than 20 years of service. “We want to thank our general managers and tenured crew members for their hard work and dedication to Chipotle by providing a one-time equity grant as an additional incentive to continue delivering outstanding results and share in the financial success of our Company,” said Brian Niccol, Chairman and CEO, Chipotle.
