Shares are not "distributed". If they are offered, they are sold on the share market.

The market is very large because funds always buy and sell automatically.

The market is complex because of the number of transactions and because there are share splits and reverse splits that take place when share value limits are reach, both high and low.

It is even more complex because processing may be suspended some times if the simulation runs and share trading are competing for the same database tables.

In some cases, the total number of shares is doubled because of a share split and the new total is not updated because a run is suspended.

Recounting does happen a little later and the totals are corrected. It does not cause any damage but percentages can be wrong for a short period.

This happened a lot in the past when the share splitting was introduced and many thousands of share splits occurred frequently.

The numbers are now smaller, the market is more stable and share counts are rarely wrong.
