Accounting 231- Class Notes for 1/29/16 Incorporating  Liability goes down by incorporating and separating self from business  A “corporate charter” is how it becomes a corporation Stock  How many can we sell? What determines that? o You, the company, determines that through their corporate charter o Authorized Stock: the amount of stock that you ( the corporation) can potentially sell  This does NOT create the stock, but allows for the possibility of stock that could potentially be sold o Outstanding Stock: stock issued/sold to external parties  Stockholders may have rights o Voting rights; having a say on big ticket issues o Dividends: getting money back from profit o Liquidation: proportionate claim to assets being sold off if the company goes out of business o Preemption: your position wont change  Contingent upon issuance of new stock  Very uncommon  Still would own the same percentage of total stock; first rights to buy them (i.e. If you own 10% of 100 stocks, but then the company issues 10 more stocks, you would have first dibs to buy 10% of the newly issued stock, or one new stock) o None of these “rights” are guaranteed o Usually people give up their right to vote, via proxy, or give up their vote to people who have more of a say in the company  Different classes of stock o Common Stock  Most common stock bought and sold  More affordable to general public o Preferred Stock  More expensive, but has more rights  Dividend Priority: preferred stockholders get dividends before common stockholders (ie. If a company looses money and can only give dividends to some stockholders, then the preferred stockholders would be the only ones to get dividends)  Preferred stockholders receive liquidated assets’ proceeds first o Common stock is more readily available, where as preferred stock is extremely expensive  Issue Price: o the price offered at the IPO (initial public offer)  Par Value: o The price of the stock at the current time o Most times the price is arbitrary o At Par –the stock is being sold at the par value o Above Par –the price of the stock is less than what it is being sold for
