  • Rights Issue : 

    This is a privilege to existing shareholders to subscribe for a new issue, shortly before it’s offered to the public, at a specified and usually discounted price, in proportion to the number of shares owned. They are also known as subscription rights or share purchase rights.

    This is the total amount of money paid in full by shareholders of a company for the purchase of their shares. It is calculated by multiplying the total number of shares issued by the par value of each share.
