Majority shareholder

Majority shareholder

A shareholder who is part of a group that controls more than half the outstanding shares of a corporation.

Majority Shareholder

A person or company that owns 50% plus one of the stock in a publicly-traded company. This allows the majority shareholder outright control of the company's operations, especially the election of its board of directors. Some majority shareholders are not involved in the daily operations of the company, but most are. Indeed, the majority shareholder is often the company's founder. See also: Parent company.
