Common Shares

Common shares represent ownership shares in a corporation.

The two most important characteristics of common shares are:

  • Residual claim means the shareholders are the last in line of all those who have a claim on the assets or income of the corporation.
  • Limited liability means that the greatest amount shareholders can lose in event of failure of the corporation is the original investment.

Each share of voting common stock entitles its owner to one vote on any matters of corporate governance that are put to a vote at the corporation's annual meeting. Shareholders who do not attend the annual meeting can vote by proxy, empowering another party to vote in their name.
