A finite group G is said to satisfy the maximal permutiser condition, or G is an MPC-group, if for any maximal subgroup M of G, there is an element x∈G∖M such that G=M⟨x⟩. In this note, we show that the class of MPC-groups is not residually closed and so it is not a formation. It answers a question posed in Qiao et al. (J Algebra Appl 12(5):1250217, 2013). Following Ballester-Bolinches and Esteban-Romero (Commun Algebra 30(12):5757–5770, 2002), a finite group G is said to be a QP-group if G is soluble and if F is a non-cyclic chief factor of G, then F has order 4 and G induces the full automorphism group in F. We prove that the class of all QP-groups is the unique largest formation contained in the class of all MPC-groups. A detailed description of the MPC-groups is also given.
