Google!?! You search, and you guess that Google owns by a Russian Jew, Mr. Sergey Brin.
First, find a list of the owners. There are Eric E. Schmidt - 1,240,463 shares, John L. Doerr - 2767 shares, Sergey Brin - 75,000 shares, David C. Drummond - 21332 stocks and shares Paul S. Otellini - 643. Tough Guys.
Go down below to the most important institutional investors, and in the first place is State Street Corporation with 22,757,690 shares, constituting 6.73% of the company as much as Google. So who is the real owner ?!
In second place with a certain abbreviation is FMRLLC with its 20368861 shares and 6.02%. Nothing mysterious. This is Fidelity Management and Research.
The third – Vanguard Group, Inc. with 14624137 shares and 4.32%. At this stage of counting the total share of Vanguard and Fidelity is already 10.34%. Big Boys.
However, we go further: among the most important investment funds of the investors of Google: first is Fidelity Contra fund Inc. with 6925967 shares or 2.05%, on the fourth – Fidelity Growth Company Fund (1,809,678, 0.54%) and on the sixth - Vanguard / Primecap Fund (1,417,843, 0.42%).
Total aggregate Vanguard and Fidelity Corporations shares of Google on August 28, 2014 is 45,146,486 (forty-five million one hundred forty-six thousand four hundred eighty-six shares), while the whole world “knows” that Mr. Sergey Brin owns the Google. Mr. Brin has seventy five thousand shares. I informed you already that Vanguard owns the Fidelity
In contrast to the Vanguard and Fidelity, holding voting shares, Brin interests in income rather than in control, so all of his shares belong to the category B that filed under section 14 (A) of the Act of 1934 “On Securities Exchanges ” declaration signed by Eric Schmidt. The number of category A shares that owned by Sergey Brin is 0.
However, Brin as a Director, who voting by proxy uses not his shares, but information about the owners of these shares I did not find, and it is possible that among owners of these shares would be the same Vanguard.
Please, see who controls Microsoft. To do this again we will use “boring” German data, this time on
