Cook Islands: Types of Company
Registered Listed Company
A Registered Listed Company is a foreign company that is quoted on an approved and recognized stock exchange and that has re-registered on the Cook Islands as an International Company under the International Companies Act.
The records pertaining to a Registered Listed Company at the Companies Registry are open to public inspection. The Monetary Board also has substantial powers to inspect such a Company's records wherever they may be.
The normal freedom of International Companies to buy back and reduce their share capital is not available to Registered Listed Companies, which need the permission of the Court for a capital reduction.
