Private corporation

A private corporation is one in which all the shares are held by a few shareholders, such as management or family members, and are not publicly traded. The vast majority of the corporations in the USA are private corporation.

The stock in both closely held and private corporations is fairly illiquid, meaning that it typically isn’t easy to find a buyer for the stock.
