What to expect from this course
Searching for an equity definition is understandable in today’s world, especially when the word ‘equity’ can have so many different meanings when applied to different situations.
Both public and private incorporated companies can issue shares in order to finance their operations.
For many companies – particularly in Europe and Asia – private equity together with retained earnings have been a sufficient source of capitalisation, allowing these companies to avoid listing on a stock exchange.
For many companies a point may be reached, particularly if the company has grown significantly in size and has aspirations for further expansion, to seek equity finance through an initial public offering of shares (IPO).

For many companies, particularly MNCs, there are attractions in having a share listing on more than one stock exchange. The last decade has witnessed an increase in such cross-listings globally.
Once its shares have been issued, a company has the option to buy back shares.
