Shareholders’ Ordinary Resolution for Bonus or Capitalisation Issue

CO.IBS.03

A bonus or capitalisation issue is also known as a scrip issue. With a scrip or bonus issue, a company transfers profits to a fund called its capital redemption reserve and uses the funds to issue bonus shares to the members in proportion to their existing holdings. Further details about what a bonus issue is, why bonus shares are issued and the procedure to issue bonus shares is available in our Guidance Note on Bonus Shares.

This Shareholders’ Ordinary Resolution – Bonus and Capitalisation Issue is the shareholder resolution required in order to approve a bonus issue following its recommendation at a board meeting. For many companies, including those with model articles (article 36), a bonus issue is permitted but requires the approval of shareholders by ordinary resolution.
