Question. ‘A to Z solutions’ is a well-known advertising agency in Kerela. The company has already raised its entire authorised capital of ₹ 10 crores through issue of shares. The company needs more funds to finance its expansion projects. Can the company issue more share capital to meet the shortage of funds? Why or why not?
Answer. No, the company cannot issue more share capital to meet the shortage of funds as it has already raised its entire authorised capital of ` 10 crores through issue of shares. The capital clause in the memorandum of Association specifies the maximum capital which the company will be authorised to raise through the issue of shares. The said company cannot issue share capital in excess of the amount mentioned in this clause. It will have to make amendments in the memorandum first.
Question. “If a company suffers heavy losses and its assets are not sufficient to payoff its liabilities, the balance can be recovered from the personal property of its members.” Do you agree? Give reasons.
Answer. No, I do not agree with this because the ‘liability clause’ of Memorandum of Association limits the liability of the members to the amount unpaid on the shares held by them. For example, suppose Shrenik, a shareholder is holding 2,000 shares of ₹ 10 each on which he has already paid ₹ 8 per share. In the event of losses or company’s failure to pay debts, he is liable to pay only ₹ 4,000 (2,000 shares @ ₹ 2 unpaid). Beyond this, he could not be called upon to bear losses from his personal assets.
