What is a share capital?


I’m being asked “Describe, in detail, the share capital of this corporation.” I’m confused as to what I’m actually supposed to report.

In: Economics

It’s basically a combination of things such as common stock, preferred stock, and retained earnings.

You can think of it as capital that’s free of debt.

I would think they’re wanting the amount and type of stock available, the price, and how much of the company’s earnings are reinvested in itself.
