What Causes Owners Equity To Decrease?


Balance sheet (owners equity)?

Owners Equity is the difference between the company's Assets and Liabilities.

Assets - Liabilities = Owners Equity

Owners Equity can be a positive or negative number. Normally it's a positive number but, in a small and/or start up business, it's not uncommon for it to be negative.

Owners Equity is listed on the right hand side of the balance sheet below Liabilities.

What happens when a corporation buys back its own stock? Does it decrease or increase owners' equity?

When a corporation purchases its own stock, that stock is known as treasury stock. Treasury Stock is a contra equity item. It is not reported as an asset; rather, it is subtracted from stockholders' equity, thereby decreasing it. The presence of treasury shares will cause a difference between the number of shares issued and the number of shares outstanding.
