Private and Public Fundraising and IPO’s

Operating companies can be public or private. The best option for each particular company is both a complex matter and an important long term decision. Companies are advised to only make such decisions under experienced legal counsel.

There are many advantages and disadvantages to a company going public. The most notable advantage to going public is the initial funds provided by the investors, which can go a long way to further developing the company. One disadvantage is having to please those investors with the company’s decisions; companies are sometimes pressured into making short term profits rather than long term investments.

Public companies are those with more than fifty non-employee shareholders. They can raise funds from the general public by issuing securities.

Private companies have less than fifty non-employee shareholders. They can raise funds from employees and current shareholders, and from the general public under some conditions. These conditions relate to whether a disclosure document is required, and whether the investment offers are made in private rather than the general public.

IPO – this is the Initial Public Offering of shares when a company first goes public. Anybody can buy these shares.

There are two regimes applicable to recognising and enforcing foreign judgments in Australia. The Foreign Judgments Act 1991 (Cth) and the Foreign Judgments Regulations 1992 (Cth) provide the statutory regime. If the statutory regime does not apply, foreign judgments in Australia must be enforced under the common law principles for the enforcement of foreign judgments.
Since China is not a jurisdiction in which the abovementioned statutes apply any judgement from a Chinese courts’ can only be enforced in Australia under the common law, and only when certain conditions are satisfied.

Abraham Gang Sun, our principle solicitor, possesses rich experience in this area of law. He acted for clients to enforcing a judgment given by District Court of Tianjin and Guangzhou.
