We have referred to Delaware legislative developments regarding benefit corporations previously on these pages, but a recent article in Forbes provides helpful background information about the history and genesis of the Delaware statutory provisions regarding this rather new aspect of Delaware corporate law. The article features a prominent Delaware lawyer who is a major player in promoting benefit corporations. In essence, the relatively new statute allows a corporation to be formed in order to have as its legitimate and explicit purpose more than only the maximization of profit for stockholders. The article linked above should be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about this developing topic.
