Definition of "Stock dividend -bonus shares"

It is distribution of shares in lieu of cash dividend to existing shareholders. Such shares are distributed proportionately thereby retaining proportionate ownership of the company. If a shareholder owns 100 shares at a time, when 10% dividend is declared he will have 10 additional shares thereby increasing the equity share capital and reducing reserves and surplus (retained earnings). The total net worth is not affected by bonus issue.
