Long-tern and Permanent Capital: It is a good source of long-term finance. A company is not required to pay-back the equity capital during its life-time and so, it is a permanent sources of capital. II. No Fixed Burden: Unlike preference shares, equity shares suppose no fixed burden on the company’s resources, because the dividend on these shares are subject to availability of profits and the intention of the board of directors. They may not get the dividend even when company has profits. Thus they provide a cushion of safety against unfavorable development

**MERITS OF EQUITY SHARES** Hi, Merits to the company The company is able to serve fixed capital without any specific charge on the assets of the company. No need to return this capital as equity share capital is the permanent resource base of the company. No liability on the company to pay fixed dividend Generally equity shares are of lesser nominal value to attract large number of investors of all income group. Merits to the investors They get bumper earnings as equity shareholders get dividend after the payment of preferential shareholders by a specified rate of dividend and the balance is given to equity holders. Equity shareholders have a privilege to vote on the agenda in AGM. Right shares are issued to equity shareholders only They have the right to inspect books of accounts . Thanks
