Peruvian Publicly-Held Corporation

A Peruvian publicly-held corporation has some similarities with the ordinarily held corporation like having a general meeting of shareholders, the board of directors and management. However, it has been created for corporations of big capital and a larger structure than the held corporation. Also, in order to consider the establishment of a Public-held corporation, it must be carried out a primary public offering of shares, convertible bonds, or more than 750 shareholders, etc.

It has to be registered in the Public Registry of the Securities Market. Finally, this type of corporation is controlled by the Superintendent of Securities, formerly CONASEV.
