The Shareholders of a company are the `owners` of the company in all the sense of the word. They are always invited to the General Meetings of the company. You have a right to vote at the General Meetings of the company if you are a shareholder. If you are a shareholder then you have the power to dismiss the Directors and the Secretary and to appoint others in their place. It is of course the Shareholders who can call a dividend from the profits of the company. If necessary it is the shareholders can increase the Capital of their company. And they may make other changes to the capital such as split the shares or fuse them into fewer shares. Their powers are unlimited.
You as a shareholder shareholder can of course sell your shares. You can do that only in accordance with the provisions of the M&A of the Company. If the company issues new capital usually the existing shareholders have the right to buy these shares first. If any shares remain unclaimed then the Directors can sell them to other interested parties. Nominee Shareholders have the same rights and liabilities to the company as the Real Shareholders.
