Why should we ever sell stock in our company, since we can lose control by doing so?
What an enigmatic question!
You should sell to gain capital to reinvest in more profitable stocks. You could also sell to keep from borrowing. If your company is having financial problems and you go public with your stock, you also keep yourself from incurring personal losses. Borrowing should only be a consideration for growth or expansion of your business. There is no need to create more debt to get out of debt.
