Nykaa board to meet on October 3 over bonus share issuance

The Nykaa board will meet on October 3 to consider and approve the issuance of bonus shares to existing shareholders, the cosmetics and fashion retailer announced on Wednesday.

“We wish to inform you that a meeting of the board of directors of the company will be held on Monday, October 3, to inter alia, consider and approve the issuance of bonus shares to the equity shareholders of the company in the ratio, as it may deem fit and seeking shareholders’ approval by way of postal ballot and such other approval(s), as the board may deem appropriate,” read a regulatory filing by the company to the stock exchanges.

Bonus shares are the additional shares existing shareholders get without any additional cost. The number of shares a shareholder owns decides the number of bonus shares as well. These are the company’s accumulated earnings, which are converted into free shares instead of being paid as dividends.
