A share is the ownership of a company and with that represents the company’s value and voting rights. When a company is divided over 10 shares and you hold two of these shares, then this person owns 20% of the company’s value and the vote of this person in the shareholder meeting also counts for 20%. Shares give shareholders certain rights, namely the right to dividend, voting rights and the right to call a meeting. The Shareholder’s meeting is authorised to suspend, remove and reward Board members, approve the annual accounts, amend the articles of association and make important decisions.
