10 10 Stockholders’ Equity Two main components: Paid-in capital (contributed capital) Amount contributed by stockholders Stock (At Par) Additional Paid in Capital Retained earnings Equity Earned but not paid in Dividends

11 11 What is Par Value The par value of a stock was the share price upon initial offering; the issuing company promised not to issue further shares below par value, so investors could be confident that no one else was receiving a more favorable issue price. This was far more important in unregulated equity markets than in the regulated markets that exist today.initial offering Quoted from Wikipedia at alue Most common stocks issued today do not have par values; those that do (usually only in jurisdictions where par values are required by law) have extremely low par values, for example a penny par value on a stock issue at USD$25/share.common stocks USD

12 12 Capital Stock Authorized shares Total # of Shares available for sale Outstanding shares Total # of Shares actually sold Represents 100% ownership Often Less than shares authorized

40 40 Stock Values Market value Market Price Redemption value Set price for Preferred stock Not Equity but a liability Liquidation value Amount paid to Preferred stockholders in case the company liquidates Book value Amount of Stockholders Equity per outstanding share

41 41 Book Value Per Share Preferred stock = (Redemption value + Dividends in arrears) ÷ Number of shares of preferred outstanding Common stock = (Total stockholders’ equity – Preferred equity) ÷ Number of shares of common stock outstanding

42 Book Value Preferred stock, 6%, $100 par, 5,000 shares authorized, 400 shares issued, redemption value $130 per share$ 40,000 Additional paid-in capital in excess of par – preferred 4,000 Common stock, $10 par, 20,000 shares authorized, 5,500 shares issued55,000 Additional paid-in capital in excess of par – common72,000 Retained earnings85,000 Treasury stock – common, 500 shares at cost ( 15,000) Total stockholders’ equity$241,000 Stockholders’ Equity
