Total Preferred Share Issued = 12000000 / 100

Total Preferred Share Issued = 120000 shares

Annual Dividend Requirement on Outstanding Preferred Stock:

=no share x dividend per share

= 120000 x 6

= Rs. 720000 P/A

Market Value of Preferred Stock:

Market Value= (total per value + additional paid in capital) / shared issued

Market Value= (12000000 + 360000) / 120000

Market Value=103

Common Shares Issued and Subscribed:

= total per value / par value per share

= 14000000 / 5


Average Price per common share received by he business:

=(Total par value + additional paid in capital ) / shares issued and Subscribed

=(14000000 + 30800000 ) / 2800000

= Rs. 16

Common Share Subscribed:

= par value of subscribed shares / par value of share

= 4000000 / 5


Amount per common share due from subscriber:

= Subscription receivable / Shares Subscribed

= 7200000 / 800000

= Rs. 9

Total Legal Capital:

=preferred stock + common stock

=12000000 + 14000000

= 26000000

Total paid in Capital:

= Total legal capital + additional paid in capital

= Total legal capital + additional paid in capital

=26000000+ 31160000


Book Value per common share:

=Common stock equity / Total common share

=(Total stockholders’ equity – claim of preferred stockholders at callable price) / 2800000

=(59840000 – (common shares x callable price)) / 2800000

=(59840000 – (120000 x 102)) / 2800000

    why the additional-paid-in capital has not been deducted from common stockholder’s equity? as it is not a part of common stock holder’s earnings. plzzzzzzzzz rpl if anyone have the correct answer

      First of all let me tell you what I could be able to understand form your question , “Paid up capital and common stock or preferred stock are same things as we raise the capital which is done with the help of issuing shares. Then why these two terms have separately stated?”

      The answer is simple and easy to understand. There is a word used “Additional” with paid up capital which means that some thing is adding to the previous stock. In accounting this is compulsory that when we make some changes at first time we have to disclose them so that there could be distinction between the old values and the new one. Additional paid up capital means that we have increased the capital recently so we have to disclose it separately from the previous stock values, common or preferred.

      The question is valid and would be answered in a different way if we erase the word “additional”. In that case additional paid up capital will be added to the previous common or preferred stock accordingly and there will no split as additional paid up capital.

      If still there is any ambiguity then ask without any hesitation.

    i am still confused….i am asking dat when we are calculating book value per share, we have to calculate common stock holder’s equity…. while calculating common stock holder’s equity we are subtracting the value of preferred stock (12000000)
    as it is not a part of common stock holder’ equity but why we are not subtracting the additional paid up capital for preferred stock which is $360000 in the above example?

    Your question have made me curious, so I have gone through the question very deeply 🙂

    Here is complete answer of your question.

    I felt shocked when i found that i was reading “additional paid in capital” as “Additional paid up capital” which was the main cause that the question has not been answered yet.

    Firstly we should understand the term ” additional pain in capital”

    In very simple words premium is called additional paid in capital.


    A company issues 1 thousand shares having par value of $10 /share and the investors paid $15 per share – a premium of $5 over par value. Now, the allocation of amount received from this issue will be as; $10,000 ($10*1,000) will be allocated to a share capital or paid-in-capital account where as the excess or premium of $5,000 ($5*1,000 ) will be allocated to the contributed surplus account as additional paid-in-capital.

    In reference to the above question 360,000 is actually premium which has collected on preferred shares and we know that common stock includes capital collected against ordinary shares, premium and undistributed profits or reserves. So, in this sense surplus amount of 360,000 have become a part of shareholders equity or common stock and will not be deducted for the calculation of book value.

    If still there is any question, go for it. 🙂

      thank u so much for such an explanatory n clear answer. actually i didnt know before that all premiums whether on common stock or on preffered stock are related to common stock holder’s. but its clear to me now
      . wud u be kind enough to tell me that y the premium on prefererd stock is a part of common stock holder’s wealth?

        There is a simple point in belonging of premium on preferred shared to the common stock equity which is;

        Preferred stock holders actually enjoy the facility of preference for dividend which is fixed to some percentage of par value of shares. There will be dividend for preferred shareholders whatever the situation is, dividend is declared or not, they will be provided with it. Furthermore, they can only enjoy the feature of callable price in relation to their shares.

        In the case of common stockholders, as they are not dominant to the dividends, so they have given an edge in relation to the premiums and other reserves. Whatever the source of premium is, common or preference, all the “additional paid in capitals” belongs to common stockholders. Because the only thing the preferred stockholders can enjoy is the preference on dividend, remaining belongs to common stock holders.

        If still confused, ask without diffidence.
