A Shares  

Definition A Share: This is a share which does not have any voting rights within the company.

With ordinary shares, the shareholder is given the right to vote on important issues such as control of the company.

A Shares are used when the owners of a company wish to raise money on the stock markets but without giving away any control and being the subject of a takeover.

Because A shares do not have any voting rights they usually trade at a lower level than ordinary shares.
