Hi, I'm Jane! I'm the owner of a small bike shop. My bikes are very much in demand that I need a bigger shop! I only have 5,000 in the bank. What do I do?
I've decided to get others who are willing to invest in my business so I can expand my business!
Are you and others willing to invest into my company?
Yes, we are willing to take a chance and invest in your company.
Hughes' business eventually becomes so successful that they are able to purchase a skateboard company. This helps them grow the company even larger than it already is!
Our company is now so large that we can issue enough stock to be listed on the New York Stock exchange!
Great! Now all we have to do is send them our records to have our stocks listed on the market!
Since Hughes Company has more 300,000 shares of stock and it is owned by at least 1,500 individuals, it will stay listed on the New York Stock Exchange as long as it publishes to them financial reports quarterly.
