New York Times Report on the Flexible Purpose Corporation

It doesn't feel so bad being quoted on the front page of the New York Times Business Section. I just wish the reporters paid a little more attention to the facts, namely:
  • it's not a low-profit model, if you don't want it to be;
  • the California State Bar's Corporations Committee and the Department of Corporations supported the Flexible Purpose Corporation; and
  • California is the only state that offers the FPC and the only state that also has a Benefit Corporation statute.
Sorry for the mini-rant.
