Bonus Share


Bonus Share definition :
Shares issued by a "healthy" company to existing shareholders without any cost. They are issued in proportion to the existing holding of a shareholder. Only if a company has accumulated a surplus in free reserves (retained profits) it can issue bonus shares. As bonus issues add to the number of total shares of the company, the Earnings Per Share ratio decreases.
