Finance acts as oxygen for the organizations. The continuous flow of finance in the organization is what keeps the business running healthy. There are several ways of how business can generate finance—Debt financing and Share financing are the two most common ways preferred by companies. But both these options have their advantages and disadvantages. In share financing, the ownership is divided with the shareholder whereas, in debt financing, the company is burdened with debt to repay. Moreover, the other deciding factor is whether the company is new or is well established. Over the last few months, the repayment of debt is buzzing in the finance world. Pandemic has caused a lot of distress in companies all over India. To release the pressure for a smooth function, companies are using the right issue to repay its debt and fight the upset caused by coronavirus.

The right issue is one of the most popular methods used by companies to generate financing. But, why the right issue? The right issue allows companies to offer new shares to the existing shareholders at a discounted rate. This keeps the ownership of the existing shareholders. In case, these shares are not accepted by the existing shareholder, then it is offered to the new shareholders. It helps in increasing the confidence of the shareholders in the company and they are also benefited from extra shares which means an increase in the dividend.
