A rights issue is a prevalent form of corporate action where the company invites existing shareholders to buy additional shares in the company at a discounted price within the said period (the cut-off date).

However, as existing shareholders of the company, you do not have an obligation to buy additional shares. If you think the company has a flourishing business, you can apply for the rights issue and increase your stake within the company.
