Who Owns A Corporation After It Is Incorporated ?

The corporation is owned by the shareholders. A corporation may have one or more shareholders. Generally, since the shareholders elect the persons who serve on the Board of Directors, the corporation is controlled by the shareholders. The shareholders who own more than 50% of the corporation's common stock get to make the ultimate decisions about running the corporation.
