Engels naar Engels vertaling van joint-stock company
A form of business organization that falls between a corporation and a partnership. The company sells stock and its shareholders are free to sell their stock. However, shareholders are liable for all debts of the company.
A joint-stock company is a business entity where different stocks can be bought and owned by shareholders. Each shareholder owns company stock in proportion, evidenced by his or her shares (certificates of ownership). This allows for the unequal ownership of a business with some shareholders owning a bigger proportion of a company than others do. Shareholders are able to transfer their shares to others without any effects to the continued existence of the company.
