Treasury Shares

Stock that a publicly-traded company issues but does not place with investors, or which it has bought back from shareholders. That is, the company holds its treasury shares back until such time as selling them becomes beneficial. Treasury shares have been issued, but they are not considered shares outstanding. Selling treasury shares to the public can be a less expensive way for the company to raise capital because the amount it spent issuing them previously is a sunk cost. Treasury shares are not included in "per share" calculations.
