Common and Preferred Stock Financing


Business organization

Business Organization

  • Sole Proprietorship – No separation of person assets from business assets and business profit taxed as personal income (unlimited liability)

  • Partnership – partners share the profit and liability of the organization personally (unlimited liability); can limit risk exposure through limited partnership

  • Corporation – Limited liability and impersonal identity; easily transferred ownership; taxed at corporate rates; separation of management & ownership (shareholders)


Managers as the agent of the shareholders

Managers as the agent of the shareholders

  • Small shareholders have little control over management – little say

  • Managers may put their interests above stockholders

  • Insufficient corporate governance e.g.directors are recommended by the management; stockholders are rubber seal

  • Agency problem – managers won’t work for the owners unless it is in their own best interests


How to solve agency problem

How to solve agency problem

  • Goal alignment of the managers & owners

  • Make the mangers the owners

  • Tie compensation to share price - e.g. stock options, bonuses based on share price

  • Strengthen corporate governance – e.g. appoint outside directors

  • Takeover and replacement of management


Shareholders rights

Shareholders’ Rights

  • Residual claim to income – amount remained after the creditors and preferred shareholders; dividends or retained earning; no legal or enforceable claim to dividends

  • The voting rights – on major issues such as director election, CEO appointment, etc

  • The right to purchase new shares – Preemptive RightProvision in corporate charter allows existing shareholdersto maintain the percentage of ownership, voting power and claim to earnings


The voting right

The Voting Right

  • Majority voting – holders of majority (> 50%) of stock can elect all directors

  • Cumulative voting – allow minority (<50%) shareholders to elect some of the directors; stockholder can cast one vote for each share of stock owned times the number of directors to be elected


Right to purchase new shares

Right to Purchase New Shares

  • Difference between initial public offerings (IPO or non-seasonal offerings) and seasonal offerings

  • In both cases, the company will set the initial price at a discount

  • Share price rises in the first case but very often falls in the latter case

  • Reason - in the latter case, there is a dilution of the value of existing outstanding shares


Dilution of shares

Dilution of Shares

  • Assume there are 9M outstanding shares currently, each share has a market value of $40.

  • The company decides to issue another 1M new shares at a price of $30

  • The total number of outstanding shares becomes 9M + 1M = 10M with a total value of 9Mx40 + 1Mx30 = 390 M

  • New value for each share = 390 M/ 10 M = $39


Right offerings

Right Offerings

  • Each old stockholder receives one right for each share owned

  • Needs to combine several rights and pay the subscription price to buy one new share

  • How many rights should be necessary to purchase one new share?

  • What is the value of these rights?


Right offerings cont

Right Offerings cont’

  • Given the followings

  • Market value of existing share$40/share

  • Share outstanding9 M

  • Current equity in total$360 M

  • Additional funds required$30 M

  • Subscription price$30/share

  • New share issued1 M


How many rights are needed

How many rights are needed?

  • The ratio of old to new shares is 9 to 1, hence old shareholder needs to combine 9 shares (or rights) to buy one new share

  • Number of rights required = number of outstanding shares/ number of new shares to be issued

  • In addition, the old shareholder has to pay a subscription price of $30 for each new share


What s the value of each right

What’s the value of each right?

  • New value of the share after dilution = $39 per share

  • Acquisition costs = 9 rights + $30

  • Hence 9 rights = $39 - $30 = $9

  • Each right = $1

  • Rights may not sell at this theoretical value due to the investors’ expectation and market short-term condition

Figure 17-1(p.665) Time line during rights offering


Formulae for right pricing

Rights-on share price (Mo)

R = (Mo – S)/ (N+1)

S = subscription price

N = number of rights required to purchase one new share

Ex-rights share price (Me)

R = (Me – S)/ N

Infact Me = Mo - R

Formulae for Right Pricing


Before and after right offerings

Before and After Right Offerings

  • Before:9 old shares at $40 = $360

  • Cash = 30

  • Total= 390

  • After: exercise the rights

  • 10 shares at $39(diluted value) = $390 Cash= 0 Total= 390


After right offerings cont

After Right Offerings cont’

  • Case 1: selling the rights

  • 9 shares at $39 (diluted value)= $351

  • Proceeds from sale of rights= 9

  • Cash= 30

  • Total= 390

  • Case 2: neither exercise nor sell the rights

  • 9 shares at $39= $351

  • Cash= 30

  • Total= 381


Effect of rights on old shareholders

Effect of Rights on Old Shareholders

  • Exercise the rights; no net gain or loss

  • Sell the rights; no net gain or loss

  • Allow the rights to lapse; a loss due to the dilution of existing shares

  • Remember to exercise or sell the rights upon seasonal offerings


Advantage of rights offerings financing

Advantage of Rights Offerings Financing

  • Protects stockholder’s voting position and claim on earnings

  • Existing shareholders provide a built-in market for new issues

  • Distribution costs are lower

  • The false appearance of a bargain may create more interest in the company stock


Poison pill

Poison Pill

  • A right offering to prevent the company from being acquired by hostile buyer

  • Once the hostile buyer accumulates a certain percentage of the common stock (say 20%), the other shareholders will receive rights to purchase additional shares at very low prices

  • This will dilute the hostile buyer’s ownership percentage as well as the share value


Preferred stock financing

Preferred Stock Financing

  • From the corporate perspective, preferred stock contributes to capital structure balance by

  • Expanding the capital base without diluting common stock or incurring contractual obligations

  • Unlike interest payment on debt, preferred stock dividends are not tax deductible


Preferred stock financing cont

  • For small individual investors, they may enjoy dividend tax credit
