Deep Polymers Limited Bonus Issue 2022
Following are the details of Deep Polymers Limited bonus issue:

What are bonus issues?
A bonus issue is a corporate action announced by the company in which it offers free additional shares to the existing shareholders of the company. A company may decide to issue bonus shares to shareholders as an alternative to payment of dividends. An investor will be eligible for receiving bonus shares if he/she has purchased the company’s shares before the ex-date.
As an example of a bonus issue, a company may announce one bonus share for every share held by a shareholder. In this case, the number of outstanding shares of the company will double. As a result, the company’s share price will halve so as to keep the market capitalization unchanged. For, if a company’s market capitalization could increase after the bonus issue, every company would be able to do so by simply increasing its outstanding shares in the market.
