Rights issue

A rights issue is a sale of rights to current shareholders of a company that allows them to purchase more shares directly from the firm at a reduced price rather than on the secondary market. The number of extra shares that can be purchased is determined by the shareowners' current holdings.
Get Start


When a firm wishes to raise more capital from current shareholders, rights issue method is used. It is accomplished by providing them with additional shares at a lower price than the market price. The number of shares available is determined on a pro-rata basis.

Existing shareholders have the option to purchase these shares, but they are not obligated to do so. This, on the other hand, provides them with an opportunity to expand their share in the firm.

Below are few reasons a company executes Rights Issue:
  1. A large amount of money may be required when a firm plans to expand its operations. Instead of taking on debt, they may want to take on stock in order to avoid making set interest payments. A rights issue to generate equity capital might be a more efficient approach to accomplish the goal.
  2. When debt/loan finance is unavailable, unsuitable, or too expensive for a project, a firm would often acquire money through a rights issue.
  3. Companies who want to enhance their debt-to-equity ratio or purchase a new firm can take the same approach to get capital.
  4. In order to repair their financial health, companies may issue shares to pay off debt.
