**Formulae**

- The nominal value (N.V.) of a share is also called the Register value, printed value, Face value (F.V.), etc.
- The price of a share at any particular time is called its Market value (M.V.).
- The market value of a share can be the same, more or less than the nominal value oi the share depending upon the performance and profits of the company.
- If the market value of a share is the same as its nominal value, the share is said to be at par.
- If the market value of a share is more than its nominal value, the share is said to be above par or at a premium.
- If the market value of a share is less than its nominal value, the share is said to be below par or at a discount.

- The profit, which a share-holder gets (out of the profits of the company) from his investment in the company, is called dividend.

The dividend is always expressed as a percentage of the nominal value, of the share. - Sum invested = No, of shares bought × M.V. of 1 share

If the share is at par, market value = nominal value

i.e., M.V. = N.V.
