Short Definition
No minimum value
Full Definition

Refers to stock that has no minimum value. Most states allow no par stock. If the stock is no par stock then the amount of stated capital is an arbitrary amount assigned by the board of directors. Further, the value of capital for franchise tax purposes is determined by the sate and this may result in higher franchise taxes in comparison with low par value stock.
