Concentration of ownership resulted in conflicts of interest (agency problem) change from conflict management shareholders with a conflict between the majority shareholder with a minority. Controlling or majority shareholder has an incentive to do the expropriation of minority shareholders. Controlling shareholders also have the ability to influence the financial reporting process. Therefore, the majority shareholder of the company with ownership concentration may affect the quality of financial reporting.
