Purchasing Stock FAQ
Who can purchase stock?
Publix is a privately-held company. Purchasing shares of Publix stock is an exclusive benefit of eligible Publix associates and members of the Publix board of directors.
How do I purchase stock?
Publix associates are eligible to purchase Publix stock after one year of continuous employment. Associates must be actively employed with Publix at the time of purchase and are subject to purchase limits based on their years of continuous employment and employment status. Eligible associates must complete a Stock Purchase Agreement on Publix Stockholder Online during an offering period to request to purchase stock and follow the instructions on the form. When you complete the form, you’re committing to purchase Publix stock with your own funds and as a long-term investment.
Will I receive an account statement?
Yes, you’ll receive an account statement in place of a paper certificate when you purchase stock. We’ll provide you with a Stock Account Transaction Statement each time you have activity on your account, such as a purchase (if eligible), sale or transfer. If you have no activity on your account during the previous calendar year, we’ll provide you with an Annual Account Statement by the end of January. You also can elect to receive account statements electronically by managing your online delivery preferences on Publix Stockholder Online.
