Glossary Term: TREASURY STOCK

Definition(s) for TREASURY STOCK:


1. ) Shares, formerly outstanding, that were repurchased by the issuing company. Companies often repurchase stock to benefit existing shareholders. Those who sell receive a premium price from the company for their shares, thus substituting a large capital gain for future dividends. This ploy is used when dividend taxes are higher than capital gains taxes. Remaining investors who keep their shares benefit from a tightened supply, which raises the share price. Companies may later resell treasury stock, or retire it according to a shareholder vote.

2. ) Treasury stock is stock that the bank holding company has issued and subsequently acquired, but that has not been retired or resold. As a general rule, treasury stock is to be carried at cost and is a deduction from a bank holding company’s total equity capital.
