Legal support of joint-stock companies

Legal support of joint-stock companies

According to Ukrainian law, a joint-stock company (JSC) is a business entity which is owned by shareholders. Each shareholder owns the portion of the company in proportion to his/her/its ownership of the company's shares (certificates of ownership). This allows for the unequal ownership of a business with some shareholders owning a larger proportion of a company than others. Shareholders are able to transfer their shares to others without any effects to the continued existence of the company.

 According to the law of Ukraine JSC are divided into 2 types:
- public JSC;
- private JSC (quantity of shareholders can not exceed 100 shareholders).

Public JSC can carry out public and private placing of shares. Private JSC can carry out only private placing of shares.
