Selling Shares

To raise capital and generate revenue, many companies opt for selling shares. In a share transfer, ownership is transferred from one shareholder to the next investor. There are multiple reasons of selling shares, including liquidating assets or exiting a company or an investment. Share transfer requires completing a specific form, sometimes known as the 'stock transfer form' or 'share transfer form'. This form outlines the details of the transaction and ownership transfer. On the other hand, share issuance is also a way for companies to raise capital, but it involves creating and distributing capital equity. Current shareholders' ownership structure and voting rights may be affected by this process. Issuing shares is a common strategy for expanding a business or attracting new investors. This could affect the organisation's general direction and decision-making. Get a quote or talk to our experts today!
