minority interests
Minority interests arise when a company has a subsidiary company (See also subsidiary) in which it does not own all of the shares. The shareholders apart from the holding company are referred to as the minority interests. For example, where a holding company owns 80% of the shares in a subsidiary company, the remaining 20% of shareholders are the minority interests. Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein financial glossary
