    A pro forma cap table, also called a pro forma financial model, is a spreadsheet which displays the financial structure of an organization in relation to its cap stocks. startup displays the current value of the organization’s cap stocks along with potential future purchases relative to the current share price. The spreadsheet also combines information of the organization to illustrate the impact of new shares after an initial purchase, the annual dividend received, the diluted stock effect, and the reinvestment effect. This effect is calculated by dividing the amount of gain into the change in the dividend rate and net present value.

    Investors in any investment are always looking for information which will illustrate whether or not they should buy more or sell more of an underlying security. A pro forma cap table helps the investor to determine this by providing data on the price per share (PSP) of an underlying issue and current and historical dividends paid. Dividends paid over time have an effect on the overall valuation of the business. Dividends paying corporations are able to reduce their financial risk by locking in payments for a designated period of time.

    An owner who is not able to lock in dividend payments may choose to sell his shares to a broker or market maker who will purchase the shares for the discounted value of the total number of shares owned. These shares are called open end preferred shares (OEPS) in the trading system of the securities exchange. The broker will list these OEPS along with the current and historical Capabilities. The prices will be established on the current date, and may change due to an increase or decrease in trading volume, changes in market valuation of equities, and other factors.

    Dividends paying shareholders will be classified as direct, indirect, or non-dividend owners. Direct shareholders will own a particular share of the corporation, while non-dividend owners do not have any ownership interest in the business. These shareholders will have an equal right to an ownership percentage in the corporation. Dividends are collected by the Board of Directors and distributed to the shareholders on a regularly stated date such as quarterly or annual. The process of creating the pro forma cap table requires input from the shareholders.

    Dividend Reinvestment Premium (DRP), also called dividend reinvestment, is the method of capital allocation used by shareholders to create a pro forma cap table. This is also known as Permitted Cash Flow and is one of two methods of distribution used by mutual funds. Dividends are used for short term and immediate cash needs. Most investors use DRC when they are not able to generate cash through other means and are able to receive immediate distributions from the corporation. Dividend Reinvestment Premium is intended to provide an income stream to current and future investors while also avoiding future debt issues with loans.

    An owner that purchases all their shares from the same company is treated as one of the same shareholders even if they are not actually purchasing all of the shares. Pro Forma Cap tables treat all shareholders as one of one category, where all shares are either authorized or designated for sale. Dividend Reinvestment Premium is calculated as the excess of the current paid-in capital against the total number of new designated or authorized shares.

    This type of investing is considered passive, as it does not require any proactive action on the part of the investor. There is no need to regularly check and see if the market value of shares is in line with what has been paid out. Any changes in worth can be implemented after the close of each day trade. There are no restrictions or minimum requirements for the purchase of these shares. An investor can sell all of their newly purchased shares without having to wait a long time to receive them. It’s possible to obtain up to twice the amount of income by investing in this type of option.

    Investors are able to buy up to one million shares at a time, but this investment does not guarantee any return. The price of shares fluctuates on a daily basis depending on how the market is performing. The maximum profit of any single share is the difference between the total purchase price and the cost of trading. One percent per share is the maximum profit level that an investor can invest in their pro forma cap table. The downside of these shares is that they are usually only purchased by new investors who have not completed their financial paperwork. This means that there is not a minimum amount of money that must be invested before these types of securities become available.
