Corporate Finance - Raising Finance

Adding commercial value to your transaction

Issue of shares

Another way of introducing funds to your corporate business is to issue more shares. This is always a welcome addition to business funds and is also helpful in giving additional strength to the company’s balance sheet. However, you need to consider where the finance is coming from to subscribe for the new shares.

If the original proprietor of the business wishes to subscribe for these shares, then he or she may have to borrow money in a similar way to that discussed above. Typically, however, shareholders in this position are often at the limit of funds that they can borrow. Therefore, it may be necessary to have a third party buy those shares. This may mean a loss of either control or influence on how the business is run. An issue of shares in this situation can be a very difficult decision to make.
