What is Bonus Share?

Bonus shares are additional shares issued to the existing shareholders in proportion to the number of shares they previously own with no extra cost. When shareholders invest in a company, they expect the company to provide dividends on yearly basis. The company can provide dividends in the form of Shares or Cash.

Usually, Bonus shares are issued as an alternative to dividend payments when a company is low on cash reserves. They are declared in ratios of 1:2, 1:3, 4:1, 5:8, etc.
