16 Share Issue Considerations Authorized Shares (核准股票)Charter indicates the amount of shares that a corporation is authorized to sell.Number of authorized shares is often reported in the equity section.
17 Share Issue Considerations Issuance of Shares (股票發行)Corporation can issue ordinary shares directly to investors or indirectly through an investment banking firm.Factors in setting price for a new issue of shares:Company’s anticipated future earnings.Expected dividend rate per share.Current financial position.Current state of the economy.Current state of the securities market.
18 Share Issue Considerations Market Price of Shares (股票的市價)Shares of publicly held companies is traded on organized exchanges (交易所).Interaction between buyers and sellers determines the prices per share.Prices tend to follow the trend of a company’s earnings and dividends.Factors beyond a company’s control may cause day-to-day fluctuations in market prices.
