Tutorial note

Computation of number of shares to be issued

Total amount = ₹ 6,00,000

Face value of the shares = ₹ 10

Premium = 50%; Therefore, premium amount = 10 × 50% = ₹ 5

Issue price = Face value + premium = 10 + 5 = ₹ 15

Number of equity shares to be issued = Total amount /Issue price = 6,00,000 / 15 = 40,000 shares
