Shareholders

Shareholders

Every company must have at least 1 shareholder and at least 1 share.

Shareholders are investors in the company, but they are not responsible for the day-to-day management of a company’s business or its affairs.

They have the right to vote at meetings of shareholders on some decisions about how the company is run including:

  • changes made to a company’s constitution
  • approving major transactions, and
  • authorizing dividends.

The number of shares each shareholder owns determines the level of voting control they have.
