Although 57 per cent of the limited companies had only one shareholder, sole shareholders amounted to less then 8 per cent of all shareholders in total.
Few enterprises - many shareholders
Only 0.35 per cent (751) of the enterprises had more than 100 shareholders. However, these shareholders amounted to as much as 69 per cent of all the shareholders.
There are thus few large enterprises in terms of number of shareholders. However, the majority of the shareholders held shares in these enterprises.
Most personal shareholders without a majority shareholding
About one out of four of the personal shareholders were major shareholders in one or more enterprises. If we look at shareholders that are enterprises, over half of these were major shareholders in at least one enterprise.
