Amazon could soon have a large new individual shareholder in the form of MacKenzie Bezos as a result of her impending divorce from the company's CEO.
Although the Bezoses are worth $137 billion on paper, nearly all of their assets are in the form of Amazon stock.
Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, announced Wednesday they plan to divorce after more than 25 years of marriage.
Indeed, there's a good chance that she could end up having the biggest stake in the company other than Bezos'.
"I can't see anywhere else the settlement could come from."
The shares give him a 16% stake in the company, making him its largest shareholder by far.
