Shareholder’s equity

Shareholders’ equity (or owners’ equity in the case of private companies), represents the amount of money that would be returned to a company’s shareholders if all assets were liquidated and all the company’s debt were repaid in the event of liquidation. In the case of acquisition, this represents the value of the company’s sales, subtracting any liabilities owed by the company that are not transferred with the sale.
