A public company "goes private" when it completes a transaction and the result is that it is no longer required to file reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission and it can deregister its equity securities. A company can also go private when a class of its equity securities is no longer listed on a recognized securities exchange. A number of transactions can result in a company going private, including tender offers, mergers and stock purchases.
