Your company is the last place I'd go to for advice on how to handle their shares.
Issuing new share certificates is done all the time and might not even require the board's vote, let alone shareholder concurrence.
The reason I asked about share splits is because Facebook is contemplating a 5:1 split that would give employees five time as many incentive shares. Of course that doesn't change the total dollar value of the shares before or after the split, but hundreds of investor-psychology experiments have confirmed that shareholders think share splits are more valuable and bid up the price accordingly.
A blogger I follow
pointed out that the last thing a company needs is to offer incentives to employees who can't appreciate the cynical marketing behind share-split math.
