Pari passu is a Latin term commonly used in legal documents meaning ‘equal in all respects’ or ‘in the same degree or proportion’.


For example, if issue of new shares is said to rank pari passu with the existing shares, then the rights associated with both the existing as well as the new shares are exactly the same.
