  3. A. Definitions (Continued) <ul><li>Stock Splits – dividing shares of stock to increase the number of shares available, lowering price, but generally keeping market capitalization constant </li></ul><ul><li>Reverse Split – combining shares of stock, resulting in higher stock price; frequently done to meet stock market listing requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Blue Chip – stocks in the largest, most consistently profitable corporations </li></ul>
  4. B. Public versus Private Corporations <ul><li>Private Company – shares of the company are not traded on stock markets, generally owned by corporate insiders, wealthy individuals, private equity firms, and venture capital firms </li></ul><ul><li>Public Company – issues shares that trade on securities markets – must meet regulatory and reporting requirements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be used to raise capital </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be a means to providing financial rewards to founders and venture capital firms while broadening the firm’s ownership base </li></ul></ul>
