Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Not all investors into S-corporations are deemed owners of the corporation. If you have a security contract for your investment, then absent any bylaws or owner agreement with you and the S-corp giving you ownership percentage of the company, you can be just an investor who is entitled to repayment and return on investment without any ownership control or rights.
