In its definition the Joint stock company (JSC, also known as AD in Bulgaria) stands for a company liable only with its own property. The shareholders are also liable for the JSC’s obligations (only to the extent of their deposited amounts). 25 000 EUR (or 50 000 BGN) is the minimum capital, which is divided in shares and spread to the shareholders, depending on their individual rates. Meaning that the sum of all shares forms the capital of the company. Shares have the ability to be traded and in that point the shareholders are entitled to participation in the profit distribution and other benefits. The JSC can provide additional financial resources for its activities by selling obligations, which represent means for external financing. After the name of the company stays EAD, which means that there is only one shareholder, or AD for two or more shareholders in the company. They bold (EAD and AD) refer to JSC.
