1986 年微軟上市時,比爾蓋茲持有微軟 49% 的股份,30 多年來他一直維持微軟最大個人股東的身份,也身兼董事長。

美國證卷期貨委員會(SEC)最新的資料顯示,分別在 4/29 及 4/30 比爾蓋茲出售了 325萬 及 460 萬股微軟股票



。這讓比爾蓋茲持有的微軟股票降到 3.301 億股,持股比例不到 4%,市價約 131 億美元。而史蒂夫·鮑爾目前仍持有 3.332 億股微軟股票,市值 132 億美元。

這是首次比爾蓋茲不再是個人最大股東,繼卸下董事長職位之後,繼續淡化在微軟的重要角色。

其實這個發展並非比爾蓋茲因為卸下董事長之後的意氣用事,比爾蓋茲夫妻多年來致力於慈善事業,已是眾人了解的事情,出錢出力,並且做得有聲有色。而此比爾與美琳達·蓋茲基金會的資金來源主要就是靠比爾蓋茲持續出售微軟的持股來挹注。在過去 5 年內,比爾蓋茲一共出售了 4 億股微軟股票,兌現約 115 億美元。

而 Microsoft 的前二大個人股東 Steve  ballmer,並非公司現在的最大股東。事實上現在最大的股東群是投資機構、法人,總共佔了微軟股份高達 68%。而比比爾蓋茲、Steve Ballmer 持股高的則有 Vanguard Group 與 State Street Corporation。

而第二大個人股東 Steve ballmer 雖然不是 Microsoft 的創辦人,不過他是微軟第 30 號員工,自 1980 年受比爾蓋茲的邀請加入公司,並且在 2000 年成為 CEO,一直到 2014 年 2 月才正式交棒給新任 CEO Satya Nadella。

這無疑也正式宣告 Microsoft 脫離創辦人階段,進入專業經理人時代。
