Highly experienced team with a great understanding of share ownership
We can discuss with you the allotment of new, or the transfer of existing as part of share ownership or raising capital.
A share can be described as an intangible accumulation of rights, interests and obligations, used to either offer a means of ownership or to raise funds to carry out its activities.
Allotment of Shares
The allotment of shares is the issuing of new shares to the existing shareholders or to third parties. The Directors of a Company may allot shares in the capital of the Company, if they have the authority to do so. Some examples where allotment of shares may be used are as follows:
- Raise money for the Company
- Introduce new investors
- Convert loans to share capital
- Put in place a group structure
- Fund a redemption of shares
Transfer of Shares
Shareholders have the ability to transfer their shares to existing shareholders or third parties. This allows existing shareholders to sell their shares, or for companies to be bought and sold, in part or as a whole. Some examples where we have used transfer of shares are as follows:
- Between existing shareholders
- Shareholder wants to leave the company
- Share exchange
- Company takeover
- Company restructuring or putting a group in place
