Private to Public Limited Company

Converting a Private Limited Company (PLC) to a Public Limited Company (PubLC) involves restructuring the business to transition from a closely held entity to one with publicly tradable shares, offering increased access to capital and growth opportunities.

    About Our Service

    Although private limited firms have benefits, many eventually aim to become public limited corporations in order to increase scalability. Going public offers clear advantages over remaining a private limited company, including the idea of an initial public offering (IPO) and the capacity to sell shares to the general public.

    Private limited businesses do not support the unrestricted transferability of shares, but the IPO concept does. Public limited corporations can have as many members as they choose, which makes it simpler for them to raise money and access capital. As a result, the move from private to public is frequently motivated by a need for expansion and greater flexibility.

    Conditions for Company Conversion to Public Ltd

    1. Changes to the Articles of Association (AOA): Section 14 of the Pvt. Ltd. company's charter requires that the three restrictions that apply to Pvt. firms be removed.
    2. Change of Name: The business should change its name by dropping the word "Private" through a special resolution made in accordance with Section 13.
    3. Increase in Membership: If there are fewer than seven members, the company must act to get that number up to at least seven. Similar to this, if there are just two directors, there should be at least three.
    4. Effect of Conversion: As of the date the Special Resolution under Section 14 is passed, the firm formally transforms into a public corporation. However, the removal of the word "Private" from the company name doesn't take effect until you get a new incorporation certificate from the ROC.
