Characterises the risk of a bank having inadequate capital reserves in view of the risks it is undergoing.

Current ČNB (Czech National Bank) and BIS regulations define capital adequacy as the ratio between capital and risk-weighted assets.

When capitalising, i.e. when a company uses its own funds to increase its registered capital, new shares are created, without the company gaining new funds. During the course of this procedure shares are created by the transformation of past years’ retained profit. Essentially, this is merely an accounting procedure. The retained profit account in the balance sheet is reduced by the nominal value of the issued shares while the company’s registered capital account is increased by the same amount. Subsequently, the company divides these additional shares among its shareholders in proportion to the number of shares held by each shareholder.
