- A rights issue is one method for a cash-strapped company to raise capital, which is frequently used to pay down debt.
- For a limited time, shareholders can purchase new shares at a discount.
- Because more shares are issued to the market as a result of a rights issue, the stock price is diluted and is likely to fall.
