Agio share is the difference between the selling price of shares and the nominal price of shares . This value is the total net worth of a company from the sale of shares above par. Simply stated, Agio Shares are the difference between share payment by the shareholders and the par value.
For example, per share of company A is sold at Rp10,000, while the par value (par value) of the shares is Rp7,000 per share, then Agio Shares are the excess. The difference is IDR 10,000 – IDR 7,000 = IDR 3,000 per share. So, the company’s Agio Stock is IDR 3,000. The value of the Share Agio will appear in the company’s financial statements later.
