A shareholder is any person, company or other institution that owns at least one share in a company. Shareholders provide the capital (equity, loans etc.) required to operate a company. If a company does poorly, however, shareholders can lose money, and/or shareholders may be required to invest or lend more money to the company (e.g. if it does very poorly or needs fresh capital to grow).
