Abstract: We show that the equivariant Thom spectra $ M{O_{{{\text{Z}}_2}}}$ and $ m{O_{{{\text{Z}}_2}}}$ do not split as wedges of equivariant Eilenberg-Mac Lane spectra, as they do nonequivariantly. This is done by finding two-stage Postnikov towers giving these spectra, and determining the nontrivial $ k$-invariants. We also consider the question: In what sense is the spectrum $ m{O_{{{\text{Z}}_2}}}$ representing unoriented bordism unique?
