Are there any disadvantages to offering shares of private corps? How many should be offered?

profits are paid out according to the % of shares you own.
own 100% of the shares, get 100% of the profits.
own 75% of the shares, get 75% of the profits.
so, selling shares reduces how much of the corporation's income you get to keep. on the other hand, you receive cash right away from share sales.
it's up to you to decide whether to keep them all or sell. personally I've tried to sell off some shares from my high value corporations but nobody buys them o_O

Question related to this.
Is it more profitable to have my steel and construction corp be at 24.99% ownership and have the 250 eff/qual upgrades, or just have 100% ownership at 200?
Another one: My two public corps are now at 250 upgrades. Is it possible for me to make it back into a state corp by buying all the shares, and still keep the upgrades?

What you can do is to own 24.99% with your country and buy the rest with your other countries' investment funds. 1/4 of the profit will go to your country, the rest into the investment funds. If you have a tax rate, that share will be deducted first. It's good for your countries to have a lot of cash in their investment funds so this approach can work, but be careful: if someone conquers your country the investment fund goes with it. I'd recommend to keep countries where you're building the IFs in permanent war protection (or keep your war level under 3, apparently that works too).
2. You can make a public corporation back into a state corporation by buying the shares back, but you will lose the additional upgrades.

Alright, thanks for clarifiying.

you wont loose the upgrades right away, they will slowly decline...
setting up the <25% control of corps for the higher upgrades, and raising taxes to 75%, is one of the most profitable econ strats. and depending on how well you manage corps, can actually make more money than all CEO corps.
as far as high priced shares, IFs will buy shares at 100 P/E, if you look at your monthly net profit, multiply that by 1000, and you'll get the max market value that auto-IFs will buy at. although they will buy a little higher...

i have personaly sold 25% of my shares and i thank it is good to make them public cause public corps. are more profitable. so in my case i could easly make up that 25% by the increase in profit.

I bought back all of my shares in one of my public corps, but it's still listed as private?

** I mean it's still listed as public and not a state corporation after i have bought all my shares back
