Shareholder*
A person or entity that owns one or more shares of stock in a corporation. For corporations, along with the ownership comes a right to declared dividends and the right to vote on certain company matters, including the board of directors. Shareholders own an interest in the corporation rather than specific corporate property. Their rights are defined in the articles of incorporation and the bylaws. Also called stockholder.
