The virtuous circle of mutuality
A Yorkshire Building Society case study

Page 2: What is a Public Company?

The owners of a public company are its shareholders. The shares of a listed public company are bought and sold on the London Stock Exchange. The main advantage of this is that large amounts of capital can be raised very quickly. There is the risk, however, that the original shareholders can lose control of their business if large quantities of shares are purchased as part of a 'take-over bid'.
