Proprietor ship - company has only one owner

The public limited companies have shares. A person buying single share of a company holds an ownership in that Company.

If you buy a share of any company then you are the owner of that company. The ownership depends on the number of shares you hold or the percentage of shares you hold. A founder, chairman or board of directors, institutional investors, hold majority of the shares of the Company so they are considered as major stake holders.
