traded firms vs private firms

What exactly mean traded firms? are they like public firms, in the sense they are listed in a stock market exchange and thus its stocks are traded on a market? thus can i translate as imrpese non-quotate?

Is private firm its opposite? thus in a private firm stocks are not traded on a market, but are owned by private persons(both in the physical sense and legislative sense).



Thanks!

    "Traded firms" are firms which have stock and that stock is "traded" on a stock exchange.

    "Private firms" may have stock, but the stock is "privately held" by a few people and not traded on a stock exchange.

    Amici italiani,

    In base a quello che ci dice Tim, una "traded firm" sarebbe quindi una società quotata in borsa, mentre una "private firm" che cos'è?:confused:
