Public limited company

A Public Limited Company differs from the much more common Private Limited Company primarily in that it can offer its shares to the public, although many Public Limited Companies are effectively privately owned until they become listed in stock exchange.

There is no obligation for a Public Limited Company to offer its shares to the public nor indeed to become a listed company. It is also possible to convert a Private Limited Company to a Public Limited Company and vice-versa.

Thus the key distinguishing feature of a Public Limited Company is that it can offer its shares to the public and it can be listed on a stock exchange.
