Par Value: What is it?

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

What Is Recapitalization?

Recapitalization happens when a company undergoes a restructuring of its financials. When this occurs, debt and equity are re-assessed and re-allotted. Usually, the goal is to improve the company's overall stability or status. Recapitalization may also be done in an attempt to optimize the company's structure for its capital. It generally occurs with the exchange of one type of financing for another. For example, shares may be exchanged for bonds.

Recapitalization is the way to organize a corporation's capital structure, including stock ownership and the rights and liabilities connected to each class or genre of stock. For shareholders of a business held together, this type of recapitalization is a nuanced, progressive strategy. In this sense, when undergoing recapitalization, a business is literally reorganizing — rights are being reorganized as they relate to stocks. The process is also called reorganization and inv
