Public Company

A public company is a company that any investor is able to invest in and obtain investment information from. Particular jurisdictions will have varying definitions on what exactly constitutes a public company (and an offer to the public). Most, but not all, public companies will have their shares listed and quoted on a stock exchange.

Synonyms: Publicly traded company, Listed company, Public corporation
