According to the current market, companies are categories in large-cap, mid-cap and small-cap companies. Company's capitalization is calculated on the basis of the total number of its outstanding shares in the market multiplied by the current price per share.

For the mid-cap companies market capitalization lies between Rs 5,000 - 20,000cr. Mid-cap companies are considerably smaller than large-cap companies in comparison to revenue, profitability, employees, client base, etc.

Mid cap stocks are in the middle rank and represent companies whose total market capitalization is between 2 billion and 10 billion US dollars (USD). Market capitalization is the product of the stock price and the number of stock shares issued, so if XYZ company has issued one billion shares and the stock price is 3 USD, then its market capitalization is 3 billion USD and XYZ company is a mid cap company. Its stock shares would be considered mid cap stocks.
