alteration of share capital


alteration of share capital
An increase, reduction, or any other change in the authorized share capital of a company. If permitted by the articles of association, a limited company can increase its authorized capital as appropriate. It can also rearrange its existing authorized capital (e. g. by consolidating 100 shares of £1 into 25 shares of £4 or by subdividing 100 shares of £1 into 200 of 50p) and cancel unissued shares. These are reserved powers, passed - unless the articles of association provide otherwise - by an ordinary resolution.
