8.2 – Discussion: Corporations – How Closely Held Corporations Differ from Publicly Traded Corporations

The Situation

A smiling woman with her arms folded.

Sally and I (the student) are in the process of opening an upscale restaurant. Would Sally prefer a closely held or publicly traded company? Discuss this question using all available information from your text and what we already know about Sally and her business from previous modules. Consider her business background, her education, her personality, her vision and goals, her drive and determination, her attention to details, and any other traits or clues gleaned from the Sally Case Study.
Include textbook Chapters on Corporate form. For discussion,
corporations may have one or more shareholders or owners. The type of corporation determines the number of stockholders, the way stocks are traded, and the requirements stated by the Secretary of State (for each state), and the Internal Revenue Service code.

Helpful Documents

Sally has found several documents to help with picking which type of corporation to form for the business you are building with her. Feel free to use this information. She has shared them here:
