The issue of bonus shares is a corporate action in which additional shares are given to eligible shareholders without any additional cost, based upon the number of shares that a shareholder owns.
A bonus issue usually happens when the share price of the company is too high, to increase the liquidity of its shares, or to restructure a company’s reserves. Sometimes bonus issues are given to shareholders when companies are short of cash and shareholders expect a regular income.
Four stocks will start trading ex-bonus this week. These stocks are Bajaj Finserv Ltd., Bharat Electronics Ltd., G K P Printing & Packaging Ltd. and AAA Technologies Ltd.
Bajaj Finserv Ltd
The NBFC major’s shares will start trading ex-bonus on September 13, 2022, and the record date for the issue is September 14, 2022. The ratio for the issue is 1:1. This means that the company will issue one bonus share for every fully paid-up equity share that a shareholder owns, provided that they are eligible for the issue. The shares will start trading ex-bonus on September 13, 2022.
The company said during the announcement of its bonus issue that though the company has a small capital base, it has a very high share price as compared to its peers. Therefore potential shareholders will find it increasingly difficult to partake in its future if the share price increases further. This bonus issue will help to increase retail participation and increase their equity base.
