Term Definition
Free Float

Free float is that portion of a company's overall share capital that is not "locked up" in firm hands (e.g. the founder or his/her family, the company's management, certain institutions, etc.). Free float represents those shares that can be traded on the exchange at any time. Small shareholdings of private investors are also counted as free float, even though those shares are in firm hands.
