More On Public Company

A public company is a business whose shares are traded on a stock exchange.

Public companies have endured the initial public offering (IPO) process to issue securities. Public companies have the ability to sell future equity stakes and access debt markets. In exchange for these business benefits, they typically experience regulatory scrutiny and decreased corporate control for majority shareowners.
