Par Value

Par Value: What is it?

If you trade securities, you've come across the term par value.

Par value usually refers to the value of a bond when it's issued. Say a bond is issued at $90, then trades to $100. The par value is still $90, even though the bond's value on the market increased. Par value can also show the value of a stock at the moment the company created its founding document, the company charter.

Par can also refer to two currencies that have the same value. For example, if the Euro was equal to one dollar, the Euro would be "at par" with the dollar. While this is an acceptable meaning of par, the phrase "par value" is used in relation to securities and not currencies.

Burn Rate

Burn Rate: What Is It?

Burn rate is how quickly a company spends its cash reserves before it generates positive cash flow. This rate is tracked each month, so if the burn rate for a company is $50,000, it means that the company is spending $50,000 each month.

The two types of burn rates are gross burn and net burn. Gross burn includes all of the money a company spends in a given month in order to run the business. Net burn is the amount of money that the company loses.

Let's say that a small startup spends the following every month:

  • $6,000 for office space/rent
  • $18,000 for employee salaries and benefits
  • $2,000 on server costs
  • $1,500 on miscellaneous

That means that each month, the company's gross burn rate is $27,500. However, if the company is producing some income, you can subtract that amount to get the net burn. So if the company earns $15,000 in the month, the net burn rate is $12,500.
