Suppose you have started a company with a few of your friends as the shareholders. The profit and loss of the company are shared among all these shareholders. As the company continues to grow and has bigger growth potential, any company’s founder would wish to expand its business even bigger, enter new markets, invest in a major R&D idea, product diversification, amalgamation and acquisition, etc. To achieve these greater goals, the company will require a huge capital investment.
