Minority Shareholder

A shareholder who holds a significant amount of stock in a company but still has less than 51%. While technically even a person who owns one share is a minority shareholder, the term most frequently applies to persons and companies with large stakes. For example, a person who owns 5% of the shares outstanding in Johnson & Johnson is considered a minority shareholder in that company. See also: Minority interest.
