The ownership of a company can be shared by many people and organisations. A share is a unit of ownership. When you own a share you become a part-owner (shareholder) of a company and you will have the right to receive any dividends paid on each share that you own, receive an electronic or paper copy or summary of the company’s annual report and financial statements as well as any other shareholder communications. You will also have the right to attend, ask questions and vote at general meetings of the company.
