Equity financing

Equity financing

Equity financing means issuing new shares or offering existing shares for sale on the capital market. In the first case the company receives new resources from the capital increase while in the second case the existing shareholders make profit by selling their shares on the stock exchange. Public offering of shares is appropriate for companies with established market positions that have clear vision about their development and want to raise funds for the strategic development of the company or for current investment projects.

Advantages of Еquity Financing:

  • It ensures significant capital resources which remain in the company and would not be paid off;
  • It provides opportunity for financing the company's operations in a manner other than debt financing;
  • It provides opportunity to the present shareholders to sell a part of their business without changing the general strategy for the company development.
