A Public Limited Company (PLC) is a limited liability company whose shares may be freely sold and traded to the public with a minimum share capital of £50,000 and usually with the letters PLC after its name.
Public limited companies will also have a separate legal identity.
A PLC can be either an unlisted or listed company on the stock exchanges.
