Public Limited Company
A PUBLIC LIMITED COMPANY (legally abbreviated to PLC) is a type of public company under the United Kingdom company law
United Kingdom company law
, some Commonwealth jurisdictions, and the Republic of Ireland
Republic of Ireland
. It is a limited liability company whose shares may be freely sold and traded to the public (although a plc may also be privately held, often by another plc), with a minimum share capital of £50,000 and usually with the letters PLC after its name. Similar companies in the United States are called _publicly traded companies_. Public limited companies will also have a separate legal identity. A PLC can be either an unlisted or listed company on the stock exchanges . In the United Kingdom, a public limited company usually must include the words "public limited company" or the abbreviation "PLC" or "plc" at the end and as part of the legal company name. Welsh companies may instead choose to end their names with ccc, an abbreviation for _cwmni cyfyngedig cyhoeddus_. However, some public limited companies (mostly nationalised concerns) incorporated under special legislation are exempted from bearing any of the identifying suffixes. The term "public limited company" and the "PLC"/"plc" suffix were introduced in 1981; prior to this, all limited companies bore the suffix "Limited" ("Ltd."), which is still used by private limited companies

symbols are unique identifiers assigned to each security traded on a particular market. For example, AAPL is for Apple Inc.; OODH is for Orion DHC, Inc.; and HD is for Home Depot, Inc. A stock symbol can consist of letters, numbers, or a combination of both, and is a way to uniquely identify that stock. The symbols were kept as short as possible to reduce the number of characters that had to be printed on the ticker tape , and to make it easy to recognize by traders and investors. The allocation of symbols and formatting convention is specific to each stock exchange. In the US, for example, stock tickers are typically between 1 and 4 letters and represent the company name where possible

Executive Director
An EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR is a chief executive officer (CEO) or managing director of an organization , company , or corporation . The title is widely used in North American non-profit organizations , though many United States
United States
nonprofits have adopted the title president or CEO. Confusion can arise because the words executive and director occur both in this title and in titles of various members of some organizations' boards of directors. The precise meanings of these terms are discussed in the board of directors article. ROLEThe role of the executive director is to design, develop and implement strategic plans for the organization in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner. The executive director is also responsible for the day-to-day operation of the organization, which includes managing committees and staff as well as developing business plans in collaboration with the board. In essence, the board grants the executive director the authority to run the organization. The executive director is accountable to the chairman of the board of directors and reports to the board on a regular basis – quarterly, semiannually, or annually. The board may offer suggestions and ideas about how to improve the organization, but the executive director decides whether or not, and how, to implement these ideas

Earnings Before Interest And Taxes
In accounting and finance, EARNINGS BEFORE INTEREST AND TAXES (EBIT), is a measure of a firm's profit that includes all expenses except interest and income tax expenses. It is the difference between operating revenues and operating expenses. When a firm does not have non-operating income , then OPERATING _INCOME_ is sometimes used as a synonym for EBIT and operating profit . EBIT = revenue – operating expenses (OPEX) Operating income = revenue – operating expenses A professional investor contemplating a change to the capital structure of a firm (e.g., through a leveraged buyout ) first evaluates a firm's fundamental earnings potential (reflected by earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA ) and EBIT), and then determines the optimal use of debt vs. equity. To calculate EBIT, expenses (e.g. the cost of goods sold , selling and administrative expenses) are subtracted from revenues. Net income is later obtained by subtracting interest and taxes from the result

Net Income
In business , NET INCOME (TOTAL COMPREHENSIVE INCOME, NET EARNINGS, NET PROFIT, informally, BOTTOM LINE) is an entity's income minus cost of goods sold , expenses and taxes for an accounting period . It is computed as the residual of all revenues and gains over all expenses and losses for the period, and has also been defined as the net increase in shareholders\' equity that results from a company's operations. In the context of the presentation of financial statements , the IFRS Foundation defines net income as synonymous with PROFIT AND LOSS. Net income is a distinct accounting concept from profit but the same as net profit. Net income can also be calculated by adding a company's operating income to non-operating income and then subtracting off taxes. CONTENTS * 1 Definition * 2 An equation for net income * 3 Other terms * 4 See also * 5 References DEFINITION Net income can be distributed among holders of common stock as a dividend or held by the firm as an addition to retained earnings . As profit and earnings are used synonymously for income (also depending on UK and US usage), NET EARNINGS and NET PROFIT are commonly found as synonyms for net income. Often, the term INCOME is substituted for net income, yet this is not preferred due to the possible ambiguity

Real Estate Development
REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT, or PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT, is a multifaceted business process , encompassing activities that range from the renovation and re-lease of existing buildings to the purchase of raw land and the sale of developed land or parcels to others. Real estate developers are the people and companies who coordinate all of these activities, converting ideas from paper to real property . Real estate development is different from construction , although many developers also manage the construction process. Developers buy land, finance real estate deals, build or have builders build projects, create, imagine, control and orchestrate the process of development from the beginning to end. Developers usually take the greatest risk in the creation or renovation of real estate—and receive the greatest rewards. Typically, developers purchase a tract of land, determine the marketing of the property, develop the building program and design, obtain the necessary public approval and financing, build the structures, and rent out, manage, and ultimately sell it. Sometimes property developers will only undertake part of the process. For example, some developers source a property and get the plans and permits approved before selling the property with the plans and permits to a builder at a premium price
