  1. treasury stock

    Treasury stock, also known as treasury shares or reacquired stock, refers to previously issued, outstanding shares of stock that a company has bought back from shareholders. These shares do not pay dividends, have no voting rights, and are not included in shares outstanding calculations used in financial reporting. Although a company can resell treasury stock to raise cash, it typically uses it for reasons such as preventing hostile takeovers or issuing to employees as part of stock compensation plans.

  1. Treasury stock

    A treasury stock or reacquired stock is stock which is bought back by the issuing company, reducing the amount of outstanding stock on the open market. Stock repurchases are often used as a tax-efficient method to put cash into shareholders' hands, rather than paying dividends. Sometimes, companies do this when they feel that their stock is undervalued on the open market. Other times, companies do this to provide a "bonus" to incentive compensation plans for employees. Rather than receive cash, recipients receive an asset that might appreciate in value faster than cash saved in a bank account. Another motive for stock repurchase is to protect the company against a takeover threat. The United Kingdom equivalent of treasury stock as used in the United States is treasury share. Treasury stocks in the UK refers to government bonds or gilts.
