A person or group of persons owns so many shares in a stock corporation that they can determine management decisions; as a rule, this includes ownership of more than half of the voting capital of a company (if one shareholder or a group acting in kind holds a high enough percentage of ownership in a company to enact changes at the highest level. By legal definition in Germany, this figure regulary is fifty percent of the outstanding shares or voting shares, plus one). – See shareholder, active, combination effect, package surcharge.
