Bonus issue of shares

A bonus issue of shares, also known as a capitalisation or scrip issue, is an issue of shares  to existing shareholders of a company on a pro rata basis with the shares that they already hold. Instead of being paid for by the shareholders, the shares are paid for by the company out of its accumulated profits.

This can be useful in a variety of circumstances including as an alternative to paying a dividend, so that rather than paying out cash dividends to shareholders, a company can instead use profits to pay for additional shares. As another example, a bonus issue may be used to increase the total issued share capital of a private company in order to make it eligible for re-registering as a public company.
