To calculate the share price after the bonus issue, the total value of shares before the bonus issue must be divided on the new number of shares. Therefore, the share price after the bonus issue will be $125 ($7,500,000 / 60,000 shares).
So the share price halved after the bonus issue. However, the value of an investment for any shareholder does not decrease in case of a bonus issue. If you held 2 shares before the bonus issue, which means the value of the investment was ₹400 (stock price * shares held). After the bonus issue, you hold 4 shares.
Shareholders can buy new shares at a discount for a certain period. With a rights issue, because more shares are issued to the market, the stock price is diluted and will likely go down.
Bonus shares are issued in a particular ratio (eg 1:1, 1:2 etc). This means that the company will issue one bonus share for every one share held by the existing shareholders and one bonus share for every two shares held by the existing shareholders, respectively.
A bonus issue, also known as a scrip issue or a capitalization issue, is an offer of free additional shares to existing shareholders. A company may decide to distribute further shares as an alternative to increasing the dividend payout. For example, a company may give one bonus share for every five shares held.
You need to note here that the bonus shares first get credited under a temporary ISIN and will not be admitted to trading immediately. It usually takes around 2-3 days for the shares to move from the temporary ISIN to the permanent ISIN after getting the approval for trading.
In stock splits the shares with a new face value are credited immediately. But in the case of bonus issue, the shares are credited after a few days (usually 15 days) after the ex-date. So, the investor cannot sell the share before it is credited into your Demat account as it may lead to auction.
In the stock market, when the number of shares available for trading increases as a result of management’s decision to issue new shares, the stock price will usually fall.
The shareholders not willing to subscribe to their rights issue can sell their rights in the open market through the rights entitlement trading platform of the stock exchange or via off-market transaction. This is known as the renunciation of rights shares.
What is the difference between bonus issue and right issue?
Difference Between Right Issue vs Bonus Issue. Rights Issue is a right issued to its existing shareholders to subscribe to the shares at a discounted price within a specified time period. A bonus issue is an issue of shares by the Company to its existing shareholders free of cost.
