15 Introduction


In this report we focus on the long-term financing by issuing shares and

dividend policy of the company. We consider the institutional design of

capital market, Stock Market Exchange and Alternative Investment Market;

fundamental theories of paying dividend and factors which influence

Dividend Policy of the companies.


The main objective of this report is to develop a better understanding

of the problems faced by start-up firms seeking capital financing and

paying percentage (dividends). In addition, we try to identify the

consequences of shortcoming and overplus of the dividend payouts for

value of corporation (for value of share) and individuals



The urgency of this question is obvious, because firms need capital to

finance product-development or growth and must, by a lot of factors

(interest rate, time period and etc), obtain this capital largely in the

form of equity rather than debt. So the issuing of shares and dividend

policy is one of the widest research overseas and I hope Russian

economists dont be backward in that list.

stage when existing shareholders private resources are exhausted,

retained profit is insufficient to cope with the rate of expansion, and

further borrowing on top of your current amount of loans will probably

be resisted by lenders until you have a more substantial layer of equity

capital. One solution to this financial problem is to retain the

services of a financial intermediary usually a merchant bank to find

a few private individuals or financial institution such as an insurance

company or an investment trust that is willing to subscribe more

capital. This is known a private placing. And, of course, there are some

advantages and disadvantages of going public.




access to the capital market and to larger amounts of finance becomes

possible by having shares quoted on the Stock Exchange;


institutions are more likely to invest on the public listed company, and

additional borrowing becomes possible;


shareholders will find it easier to sell their shares in the wider



the company attains a higher financial standing;
