How many shares does SulAmérica have? How do I calculate the Company's Market Cap?
The company has 1,182,461,903 shares.

Since not all of the shares are grouped into Units (e.g. the shareholder Sulasapar Participações has mainly ordinary shares which are not grouped in units), to calculate SulAmérica's Market Cap, you must divide the total number of shares by three (1 unit = 3 shares) and multiply it by the market price of the unit listed on the exchange, as follows:  

Market Cap = Unit Price x (Number of Total Shares / 3)

SulAmérica's shareholders can check their holdings with the Company's custodian agent, Itaú or with your own personal broker.
