What does Rights Issue mean for Shareholders?


In this article, we are going to discuss “How to Apply for Rights Issue online?”. Before we go deeper, Let’s look at what is a Rights Issue (i.e. RI).

The rights issue (rights offering) of shares is fundamentally a way through which a listed company on the stock exchange raises extra funds. It is an invitation to the existing shareholders to buy extra new shares in the company.
A rights offering gives preferential treatment to existing shareholders.
They are given the right, NOT obligation, to purchase the shares before a particular date.
However, it does not mean that a shareholder can purchase unlimited shares.
