Rump

In a merger or acquisition, the shareholders who refuse to sell their stock. If the merger or acquisition is successful, the rump becomes powerless; however, refusal to sell can deprive the acquiring company from some of the company's cash flow. This can discourage the acquiring company from completing the merger or acquisition in the first place.
