Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong has risen to become the second largest shareholder of Samsung Life, a key link in controlling Samsung Electronics.
Affiliates such as Samsung Life Insurance and Samsung Electronics simultaneously disclosed changes in the shares held by Chairman Lee Kun-hee.
Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong has been controlling Samsung Electronics through Samsung Life as the largest shareholder of Samsung C&T.
The survivors paid the inheritance tax this time and finished allocating shares of Samsung affiliates inherited from the late Chairman Lee Kun-hee.
Excluding Mrs. Ra-hee Hong, Samsung Life Insurance’s inheritance shares were distributed to vice-chairman Lee, and Lee became the second largest shareholder after Samsung C&T and became the largest individual shareholder.
Samsung C&T’s stock at the top of the Samsung Group was divided by Mrs. Hong Ra-hee and the three brothers and sisters according to the legal inheritance ratio.
As a result, Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong’s stake in Samsung C&T increased to about 18%.
The largest stake in Samsung Electronics was distributed according to the legal inheritance ratio.
Mrs. Hong Ra-hee received 3/9 to become the largest individual shareholder, and Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong and Sister Lee Bu-jin Seohyun also increased their shares.
In order to strengthen vice chairman Lee Jae-yong’s dominance, it was also observed that Samsung Electronics’ stakes would be taken away, but in reality it was set at the legal ratio.
Samsung Electronics’ stock inheritance tax, which has a stake of more than 4%, reached 9 trillion won, which seems to have taken into account the practical problem that Vice Chairman Lee cannot afford it alone.
With the completion of the distribution of inherited stocks, Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong’s group management rights became more stable.
