What Is Paid-In Capital?

Paid-in capital (PIC) is the amount of capital investors have "paid in" to a corporation by purchasing shares in exchange for equity.

The primary market is the part of the capital market that issues new securities. It is through the primary market that people invest in a corporation by purchasing stock, raising the corporation's PIC figure.

Stock purchased in the open market from other stockholders (secondary market) does not affect paid-in capital.

Additional Paid-In Capital

Paid-in capital can also refer to a balance sheet entry, often listed under stockholder's equity. Additional paid-in capital (APIC) is also known as
