WHAT DOES SHARE CAPITAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Share capital

Share capital or capital stock refers to the portion of a company's equity that has been obtained by trading stock to a shareholder for cash or an equivalent item of capital value. For example, a company can issue shares in exchange for computer servers, instead of purchasing the servers with cash. The term has several meanings. In its narrow, classical sense, still commonly used in accounting, share capital comprises the nominal values of all shares issued. In a wider sense, if the shares have no par value or the allocation price of shares is greater than their par value, the shares are said to be at a premium; in that case, the share capital can be said to be the sum of the aforementioned "nominal" share capital and the premium. In the modern law of shares, the "par value" concept has diminished in importance, and share capital can simply be defined as the sum of capital the company has received from investors for its shares. Besides its meaning in accounting, described above, "share capital" may also be used to describe the number and types of shares that compose a company's share structure.
