What Are Free Float Shares

Shares of a company which are readily available for trading in the stock markets are termed as 'Free Float' Shares.

To compute the Free-float shares of a company, subtract the following from the total shares issued by the company:
  • Shares held by promoter/promoter groups.

  • Shares held by the Government.

  • Shares held by persons/entities having "controlling interest"

  • Shares held by group companies.

  • Holdings through the FDI route.

  • Shares otherwise locked-in and not available for trading (till the time such lock-in is operative).
