In share allotment, The shares are created and issued by the company to the people who become the company’s shareholders. Shares will generally be issued by the company at the start of its life and some companies will issue more shares later on. A share transfer, in contrast, involves existing shares being passed from an existing shareholder to someone else. That will always take place after the company has been formed. Difference between Share Allotment and Share Transfer
The main reason a company will issue new shares is to raise money to finance the business. Some examples will help to show the different scenarios where an allotment of shares may be considered. 1.When the company is first incorporated, a number of shares will usually be issued. This share issue, along with any money that the company may borrow, enables the company to trade. The initial shareholders are often referred to as ‘subscribers’, because they are said to subscribe to the new company’s Memorandum of Association. Scenarios considered for allotment of shares
2.Shares may be issued in order to repay some or all of the company’s borrowing. 3. New funds may simply be required to grow the business organically. 4. A share issue could be used to fund the purchase of another company. This may mean raising cash from a share issue and using that cash to buy the other business.
