Abstract: Cao's splitting theorem says that for any complete Kähler-Ricci flow $ (M,g(t))$ with $ t\in [0,T)$, $ M$ simply connected and nonnegative bounded holomorphic bisectional curvature, $ (M,g(t))$ is holomorphically isometric to $ \mathbb{C}^k\times (N,h(t))$, where $ (N,h(t))$ is a Kähler-Ricci flow with positive Ricci curvature for $ t>0$. In this article, we show that $ k=n-r$, where $ r$ is the Ricci rank of the initial metric. As a corollary, we also confirm a splitting conjecture of Wu and Zheng when curvature is assumed to be bounded.
