| ACI Worldwide develops, markets, installs, and supports a range of software products and solutions primarily focused on facilitating real-time electronic payments. Co.'s payment capabilities, technologies, and solutions are marketed under the brand name Universal Payments. In addition to its own products, Co. distributes, or acts as a sales agent for software developed by third parties. These products and services are used globally by banks, financial intermediaries, and a range of transaction-generating endpoints, including automated teller machines, merchant point-of-sale terminals, bank branches, mobile phones, tablets, corporations, and internet commerce sites. We show 40 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our ACIW shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute ACIW market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing ACIW market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing ACIW's market cap history versus its peers.
Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies,
and then calculating their respective market caps. Comparing the share price of ACIW versus a peer is one thing; comparing
ACIW market cap versus a peer is a completely different story.
Furthermore, via fluctuation both in per-share price and in the number of shares outstanding (via issuance of new shares over time, the repurchase of existing shares),
the market cap for a company like ACIW can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching ACIW by allowing them to research the ACIW market cap history.
