If cells do not undergo cytokinesis, the cytoplasm and organelles in the cytoplasm would not divide. Cytokinesis is the process of dividing the cytoplasm into two daughter cells. The centrosomes, mitochondria, and Golgi complex divide and, along with the other components of the cell, are evenly distributed into the newly formed cells. So, if cells do not undergo cytokinesis, nothing of that would happen.
