Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered
Q. Once a corporation has been formed can shares of stock not be issued, and if so who owns the corporation?
A: You could change the ownership of the corporation by issuing shares to an officer of the corporation. To do so, I recommend that you have a stock purchase agreement, a Board consent authorizing the issuance of the shares and submit a 25102(f) securities filing for the issuance of the shares.
