Cyprus: Types of Company
Public Company Limited by Shares
Any company registered under the Companies Law whose articles do not contain the restrictions applicable to private companies is a public company. A public company has a separate legal personality from its shareholders and may obtain a listing on the Cyprus Stock Exchange. As with similar institutions in other countries, a shareholder is only personally liable up to the value of their shares. The minimum number of members is seven; there are no formal restrictions on age, residence or nationality.
