Private Limited to Public Limited

Convert a Private Limited Company to a Public Limited Company


By converting your private limited company to a public limited company, you can allow for the free transfer of shares in the market through the issuance of a prospectus!


In India, the share transferability of a private limited company is limited to 50 shareholders, and they are restricted from freely trading their shares with the general public. However, a Public Limited Company does not suffer such limitations and its shares may be freely traded amongst the general public. Sign up for our Conversion from Private to Public Company Service today, so that your company can shed the restrictive cocoons of Private Company regulations and emerge as a new Public Company. With our team working for you, you can focus on the impending transition, and acquiring funding for the same. Sign up today!
