The effect comes along as a result of the increase in the business’s assets as well as the stockholders’ equity (Helstrom 2017). It happens following the fact that the company opts to issue its stock to obtain certain business-related goals. For instance the main aim could be to come up with adequate capital to buy more new equipment. It could also be aiming at raising more cash to make payments to the employees and vendors.
